The reason being.. – well I do not really know – it usually is a problem with one of the feeds in the list – which causes the whole process to commit harakiri. It is extremely annoying. I know. I miss my daily fix of virtualization news. I really missed it during VMworld in Europe last week.
So here was the chain of events (through my twitter stream) that led me to create my own list of all the blogs that are currently in the feed.
Is the planet v12n feed broken again ? /cc @jtroyer

I find it difficult to follow the blog posts coming out of #VMworld - while Planet V12N is not working...

Me thinks I am going to have to create my own Planet V12N feed ...

The lack of having updates from PlanetV12N is really annoying. Eric Siebert has a feed of the top 50 blogs here - http://feeds.feedburner.com/PlanetVsphere-land – but as I stated tonight on Twitter:
@ericsiebert @wygtya @josh_atwell The problem with the Top 50 - is that it is missing the other 207 on the feed..

So I collected all the links on the PlanetV12N page – and have made a temporary aggregate feed that you all can follow, until John Troyer can get this mess fixed up.
I think I got all of the blogs that were listed on the site (there were 314). I stripped out the Youtube channel links and all of those that were not working. This leaves 257 blogs that you can now get in one feed.
Just to make things clear once more.
- This is not the definitive list
- This is temporary – until Planet V12N is fixed
- I will not add / remove feeds from the list – so don’t ask.
