Website cleanup – RSS feed

Received an email from google today claiming there may be some suspicious content on the subdomain feeds.chipwreck.de – which is just a DNS redirect to Feedburner (a dying RSS service which was bought by Google some time ago). The warning only occurred for this single subdomain, not for this website.

I had a look with several tools, looked into the database and the filesystem but didn’t find anything irregular. Either this was a false positive or the suspicious content is somehow related to Feedburner. Nevertheless I switched off the subdomain and removed the Feedburner service (which was a good idea anyway, the service has been rumored to shutdown). So if you can’t access the RSS feed anymore point your reader tohttp://www.chipwreck.de/blog/feed/.

Some other parts of the website are also a bit out of date, like “Bookmark this on Technorati!”, Flattr links to my inactive account etc. And the end of the year is a good time to clean up the website.
