Syndication Flavors

Ever since I've decided to prevent folk from stealing my bandwidth, I get around one e-mail a week from people using web-based aggregators asking for some way to get my feed without images or suggesting a degraded/branded version.

So I looked into it again, and, guess what, stripping the images was a one-line fix. But since the vast majority of my RSS subscribers seem to be using NetNewsWire, I decided to make the text-only feed an option (which turned it into a five-line fix).

You can find the link to the new feed on the sidebar and right here. I'd appreciate feedback if you have any sort of problems with it.
