From the point of view of being a non-income site (as opposed to non-profit ) staffed by volunteers. We have plans on moving to Java based software, but you would be surprised at how few people are prepared to work full time for nothing
I told a slight lie. From memory we generated the RSS at every request. While this could be improved, the problem is still UBB. Again based on my own understanding, it appears to be stretching at the seams and eventually we will get tired of propping it up.
Any plans to re-implement RSS feeds or fund new hardware would have to wait on the move from UBB to something else.
Slightly correcting David, I think it wasn't a software problem. UBB now has the capability to generate RSS feeds for each forum. But the additional load created for having it turned on for even just a single forum was prohibitive.
If you want to point your newsreader at something, how about the JavaRanch News blog, which does have an RSS feed? [ December 15, 2006: Message edited by: Ulf Dittmer ]
