RSS Feeds Repaired

Your RSS feeds have been repaired. Welcome back, Windows users!

As you are migrating this site from WordPress (a stopgap) back to the latest version of your own software, performing an upgrade would have been a waste of time. Fortunately, the problem was easily solved. Due to a well-known problem with a PHP script in less-than-current versions of WP, RSS feeds appear as broken to many Windows-based RSS readers. The file, named wp-blog-header.php, uses a space where a dash should be. If you’d rather address the problem directly without performing an upgrade, simply replace line 87 with:

    @header('Last-Modified: '.$wp_last_modified);

Edited as above, you will again experience the joy of Windows users consuming your RSS feed.
