Did you hear? There’s a virus that’s causing infected websites to display only XML today. Victims noted so far: Sippey, Anil, Andre, Leslie, Andy, and Jason K. Due to its rapid-spreading nature and apparent magnetism for the weblog hotspots, the industry’s best and brightest minds have now committed to working on a fix. We may know more soon.

Update: Thanks go out to the virologists who worked long into the morning hours to provide a fix. Things appear to be back to normal…


That WAS very strange. I couldn’t understand what was happening. Can you provide more details?

That was a fun little Movable Type hack. It took me about an hour to figure out how to set up a template like that. Very interesting.

What was that for though?
