    <p>I&#8217;ve decided to buy in whole-heartedly to <a href="http://www.feedburner.com/">FeedBurner</a> for many many reasons, one of which is offloading some bandwidth from my site&#8230; the other is for some accurate stats that FeedBurner offers me.&nbsp; If you subscribe to my feed via a <a title=".Text" href="http://www.gotdotnet.com/Workspaces/Workspace.aspx?id=e99fccb3-1a8c-42b5-90ee-348f6b77c407">.Text</a> URL (http://www.andrewconnell.com/blog/rss.aspx) then I&#8217;d suggest manually updating it to use my FeedBurner feed URL (<a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/AndrewConnell">http://feeds.feedburner.com/AndrewConnell</a>).&nbsp; I&#8217;ll do some magic to make the change automated for many RSS readers that already support the HTTP 301 return status code.&nbsp; The old RSS feed will no longer work in the future.</p>
    <p>However, if you subscribe to a specific post category, there&#8217;s a more drastic change to you: I&#8217;m removing all my category feeds.&nbsp; Why?&nbsp; Because I can&#8217;t create a FeedBurner URL for each one, that&#8217;s not realistic.&nbsp; I didn&#8217;t think it was much of an option&#8230; so, if you subscribe to one of my category feeds, please update your feeds to use my <a href="http://www.feedburner.com/AndrewConnell">Feedburner RSS subscription</a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/AndrewConnell"><img style="BORDER-RIGHT: 0px; BORDER-TOP: 0px; BORDER-LEFT: 0px; BORDER-BOTTOM: 0px" height="26" alt="" src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~fc/AndrewConnell?bg=&amp;fg=&amp;anim=" width="88"></a>.</p>
    <p>I plan on using the method detailed by Scott Mitchell <a href="http://scottonwriting.net/sowblog/posts/4336.aspx">here</a>.&nbsp; When will I make this change?&nbsp; I&#8217;ll let you know, sometime in the next few weeks (read: when I have some free time).&nbsp; I&#8217;ll also do a before &amp; after post so if you don&#8217;t get the after post so you&#8217;ll know if you are using the latest change.</p>
    <p>Sorry if this is an inconvienience to some, but it&#8217;s going to make things easier for me.</p>
