Folks, a few people who were subscribing to the NERS feed via ScienceBlogs have noted that the feed automatically updated when this blog moved to Discover. This is true, but you still need to manually change the feed URL in your reader to http://feeds.feedburner.com/notrocketscience/ Basically, the Discover tech spirits have done something clever with Feedburner where the old ScienceBlogs feed has been redirected to the new Discover one. But this is just a temporary solution. If you check your readers, you'll see that it's still using the old feed URL. In a few weeks, that URL will stop working and Feedburner will send you a reminder asking you to update your readers to the new one. The Internet, it seems, is clever, but not that clever.
