Apologies to rss, atom feeds for seeing old posts...other details

I may figure out how to stop this from happening (if anyone out there knows how, please let me know), but as I add labels (keywords) to old posts, RSS and atom readers think they are new postings. This will be happening over the next period of time.

The new google search box works like gangbusters, bringing up all posts with the word(s) you enter. The old Technorati search box was useless. The labels on the right will give you an idea of the areas I find interesting and take you to relevant posts. This may be more non-techies want to know, but this blog now completely replaces my existing file systems. A PDF file or link to any article I might want to use is now obtained through the blog, no more storage of paper copies (three file drawers full, used for my book) or copies on my local hard drive apart from backups of the yahoo server that hosts dericbownds.net. My dericbownds.net website stays as it was, with professional and personal stuff, but MindBlog (mindblog.dericbownds.net) has now moved to the blogger servers.

To relegate old posts back to their place in history, go into "edit" mode for each post and at eh bottom of the content box, click on "post options". In "post options", just change the date and time of the post, and the post will be return back to its proper chronological order.

Hope this helps.

Actually, the old date and time doesn't change when I add labels or keywords and re-post, and the post appears in the past where it should on the blog. It just the rss and atom readers that think it is a new post.
