ATOM and RSS Feeds Now on FeedBurner

Trouble with finicky RSS feeds not updating in certain RSS readers led devot:ee to FeedBurner.
Devot:ee's RSS feeds are now burned with "Feedburner":http://www.feedburner.com/. I was having a tough time seeing any devot:ee updates in "NetNewsWire":http://www.newsgator.com/INDIVIDUALS/NETNEWSWIRE/ (the latest article on "tweaking Solspace's Tag module":http://devot-ee.com/articles/item/modify-solspaces-tag-module-to-show-a-clickable-list-of-links/ still never showed up for me in NNW until I grabbed the new FeedBurner feed), although they would show up OK in other readers, like right in "Safari's own built-in RSS reader":http://www.apple.com/safari/features.html#rss, or in "Google Reader":http://www.google.com/reader/. The inconsistency was frustrating, so I decided to use FeedBurner to see if that could help matters.
Looks like the RSS is working better already. Plus, I can track subscribers, etc - all the little extras that come with having one's feed burned.
There is currently one feed that retrieves articles and news items, and it comes in an "RSS 2.0 version":http://feeds2.feedburner.com/devotee/rss2, and an "ATOM version":http://feeds2.feedburner.com/devotee.
