RSS Feeds and Entry Length
I've received feedback from various monkeys and others that my entries in this blog (what the hell, people read this?!) are frustrating to those who use RSS aggregators. This is due to the fact that Moveable Type tends to limit its RSS feed to 40-word snippets of each entry, which isn't too useful. After noodling around inside the Templates for the blog, I have discovered that buried inside both the RSS 1.0 and RSS 2.0 templates is the MT tag $MTEntryExcerpt; I have replaced it in both cases with $MTEntryBody. We'll now just see if that, in fact, does place the entire entry into the feed.
