FeedBurner and excerpt feeds

I just enabled FeedBurner and set up a redirect on my main feed URL. This should be completely transparent and you should not have to update your feed subscriptions. In doing so and since no-one seemed to object, I've also switched to excerpt feeds. If something seems wonky, let me know.

Hey Jonathan, glad to see you using FeedBurner! Let me know if you have questions, suggestions, etc about the service.

Safari is now showing me duplicates for the SXSW and Design Tweaks entries, with the exception in each case that the more recent one is manually truncated ("read more at snook.ca") while the others are longer.

Maybe this is a caching artifact, though.

Feedburner is a great service and I hope you enjoy it. I did the whole redirect thing a few months and have been loving it ever since. The other thing I did was add atom.xml as a redirect to my feed ever since I heard about googlebots searching for the file (ala blogger.com).

Only three hours in and already I'm enjoying the benefits. I definitely feel like I have a better picture of my overall stats feed stats. It'll be interesting over the next week or so to see what my overall bandwidth is like.

I actually don't mind the partial articles in the feeds. Works just as well for me since your site is always a pleasure to look at.

I'll vote for full content feeds.

Failing that, the "Read more at Snook.ca!" is a bit excessive -- I think the ellipsis is sufficient to indicate more content is available.

Thanks Darren... I've removed the "Read more..." bit from the feed.
