I Don’t Know

Apparently my previous post keeps showing up in Google Reader over and over. I don’t know why either. Apologies to those who are getting bugged by it. I’m hoping making a new one will clear out whatever oddness is making this happen. If it keeps happening, time to give the exorcist a call.

Update: I had this exchange on FriendFeed about this issue, where I had noticed the numerical GUID in that post. Yesterday I updated the database directly to change it away from that number and to the URI for that post. It seems to have changed back. This post seems to implicate Podpress as the culprit. I disabled it temporarily and will be moving over to the Podcasting plugin. Podpress hasn’t been updated in over a year and is drifting further and further from the core WordPress code anyway. It’s all kind of a drag, though.

    I did notice this but no problem dude. Your repeats are better than most folks original content! 🙂

    Just FYI I’ve abandoned FF. After reading this post by Todd I was moved, to say the least, and took action. Thought you would appreciate – in the extreme! Check it out at http://tyrtle.wordpress.com/2009/01/09/most-people-might-be-offended-by-this-post/

    In a sense it is good to know the problem with that post isn’t just with my setup 🙂

    A quick look at the feed shows that for some reason the guid for that post is a number (565353448) instead of the URL like it is for the other posts.

    If that number changes when the feed has to regenerate because the cache expires then it would be the problem…

    The guid for that post has changed and is now 36326041.
