just a couple of notes:
1. For all those who are subscribed to my feed via email, please ensure that you have verified your email. When you subscribe via email, feedburner will send you an email to verify your address. If you have not received and acted upon the email, you will not get my feed delivered. I see a good number of people in the 'unverified' state, so please check your status. Also note that the 'feed by email' is sent out at 9AM each day, if there was a new feed before that. So it is not instantaneous (I don't control it - feedburner works that way)
2. My feed should now be working properly, ordered the right way, thanks to the wonders of Yahoo Pipes - I simply created a pipe to sort blogger feed by published date and use that as a feed to feedburner. What a great tool, this Yahoo Pipe. So for all those who were affected by the mess before, despair no more !
