A couple of years ago when I started blogging about emacs I asked to be included in planet emacsen. And now I have been removed. What can be the reason for that I wonder.
Well, I have just come back from a blogging break. Between my post on sorting records with emacs in August 2009 and my post on Enablers and Obstructors in March 2010, there were almost 7 months. But the latest post in Amortized Analysis (a blog that hasn’t been removed from planet emacsen) was 4th January 2008. That is more than 2 years ago.
Maybe I’m not that relevant anymore. I have posted mainly P.erl posts since my break. But I do still do emacs stuff, e.g. Directory Aliases Revisited and Programming with Types. And Alexandre Vassalotti’s most recent Emacs post was September 2007.
Anyway, whatever the reason, it has been done. What solution do I have? I have created a yahoo pipe called Better Planet Emacs which you can subscribe to. It filters a lot of the non-emacs related posts out so for me at least it is better than stock planet emacs. If you want to copy it and customise it for your own use you should go here.
