Hi,

I have been following Cooking for Engineers for some time now and I love it. My one beef (mmmm beef...) is with the new site design. The original design was set up like a standard blog, where the newest postings were placed at the top of the page. Now, from looking at the front page, I can never tell if something is new or old. What I generally do is click on the "Table of Contents" link and then "Resort by date published", but that's kind of a pain.

As a workaround, I thought that I could just subscribe to the Atom feed so I could be notified of new articles, but that doesn't seem to work. I am using RssReader (http://www.rssreader.com/), but when I try to add your site feed, I get an error saying "Feed contains an unexpected RSS or Atom version number. I have found this to be a very useful and reliable RSS reader and have not seen this error with other feeds, so I am wondering if there is something different about yours.

If you have any suggestions, I'd love to hear them. Keep up the great work!

I've had all manner of difficulties with the feed. According to feedvalidator.org, it is a valid Atom 1.0 feed, so I'm not sure what changes I need to make to the code.

Well, if you do want to try any changes, I'd be happy to test them with the RSS reader I am using. I was under the impression that the software I am using was pretty widely used. Just send me an e-mail if you are interested.

Barring that, I guess I'll just keep going to the table of contents and sorting by date...
