AJ

Thanks Chuck!

Just one note - feedblitz urls are currently blocked by EMC internal IT :-)

Chuck Hollis

Hi AJ -- yes, but ...

If you try and access the feed URL directly, you get a block. However, using that same URL in a feed reader works great, as does the email subscription.

I sent a note to the IT folks about the blocking.

Thanks!

Flipboard, on my iPad, consumes & presents RSS feeds very nicely. That's where I read you now.

Chuck Hollis

To my EMC brethren:

I was able to work with our IT team to unblock the feed URL. There were a few people who were using Outlook as an RSS reader, and they would hit a hard block.

Problem rectified, you may proceed ...

You're going to be in the same place at some point in the future because of the dependency on the feedblitz.com domain. A better option would be to CNAME their domain and have users point to feeds.chucksblog.emc.com or something similar.

Chuck Hollis

Good suggestion, Raj -- thanks!

    Chuck has recently joined VMware in a new role, and is quite enthused!

    Previously, he was with EMC for 18 years, most of them great.

    He enjoys speaking to customer and industry audiences about a variety of technology topics, and -- of course -- enjoys blogging.

    Chuck lives in Holliston, MA with his wife, three kids and four dogs when he's not travelling. In his spare time, Chuck is working on his second career as an aging rock musician.

    Warning: do not buy him a drink when there is a piano nearby.

  • Frequency of Updates
    I try and write something new 1-2 times per week; less if I'm travelling, more if I'm in the office. Hopefully you'll find the frequency about right!
  • Comments and Feedback
    All courteous comments welcome. TypePad occasionally puts comments into the spam folder, but I'll fish them out. Thanks!
