RadioAtomBridge update coming

I really have put off working on my RadioAtomBridge for a while
now.  It worked for me, and that’s what counts … right?  🙂

Well, over the last week, it stopped working for me … and I was
frustrated.  I haven’t seen any comments on the blog about it, and
so I figured that it was probably ok, but the more that I looked into
the problem it appears that there were two issues:

  1. It appears that Blogger/Google have lived up to their promise of
    requiring SSL/TLS to secure the ATOM posting.  This really does
    make sense, and I’m not against … I just didn’t want to have to edit
    code again.  But I have, and I am now testing this new version
    that I worked on last night.  If all goes well, I’ll post a new
    version for people in the next day or so.  Oh and another note …
    this is slowly becoming the Radio Blogger Bridge
    again since I am slowly hardcoding some things to work with Blogger,
    and removing some options.  I might see how easy it is to add an
    option for SSL/non-SSL … but don’t count on it.
  2. I also found that Blogger will not allow you to create a post
    that does not include a “title”.  So if you post, and the title is
    empty, it causes a java:Null Pointer Exception on their server. 
    Wonderful.  I haven’t yet fixed this, but am looking at what I
    might do … maybe force a default title of the time and date?

Anyhow … it was fun to get into Radio again … and it was also a
pain.  I hate that I have not yet found a fully supported blogging
tool that really does what I want it to do.  But I am working on
