Haamupäivitysongelma on nyt toivottavasti ratkaistu. Olin unohtanut täyttää RSS-syötteen seurattavan tiedoston kenttään Blogilistan blogi-infossa. Hupsista.
Hollywood hails digital film deal
“With digital projectors, films are screened and distributed by computer. […] Studios have spent the last three years working on the technology and have now settled on specifications they say are good enough for all types of movies. […] The cost of distributing each film will be cut by 75% because studios can send their films to cinemas by satellite, fibre optic cable or disc, instead of truck.”
Syystä tai toisesta Nuudelisoppa tuntuu nykyjään haamuilevan Blogilistan päivitystutkalle. Syytä siihen en tällä hetkellä tiedä, enkä siksi pysty sitä korjaamaankaan.

The Software Patch
“The newest patches to download are listed on the top of this page. If you are new to the site, the easiest way to keep up-to-date is to bookmark this page and return on a regular basis.”
Look like the patches they’re offering are Windows only.
Too bad that with such a cool idea they’re not offering an RSS feed. You’d think the whole purpose of gathering all patches in one place would be to avoid the “check this site on regular basis” hassle. Of course, checking just one site instead of many does save some trouble, but still…
Or does that “if you’re new to this site” premise imply that there are other ways to keep up-to-date, not apparent on the surface?
