If the thought of getting up at 3AM on "Black Friday" and dragging yourself across town to stand in line for sales doesn't fill you with the holiday spirit, why not spend your weekend doing something more meaningful, like cleaning up your Linux filesystems? To be sure, a modern Linux file server probably isn't in need of being torn down and rebuilt, but if you're like a lot of us, you partitioned those disks several releases ago with lofty intentions of leveraging extents, delayed allocation, B+ trees, and all sorts of other advanced features, only to let them languish at their default settings instead.

Luckily you don't have to choose one or the other; you can add PubSubHubbub support to your site's feeds without losing compatibility with your more "traditional" readers.
