What's In Your Wallet....Errrrr.... I Mean RSS Reader?

Postby TeMerc » Sun Jan 27, 2008 8:39 pm

Thought I'd get a thread going about how many links\feeds everyone currently has in thier RSS readers.

I currently have 106 feeds which I have being read by GreatNews The Intelligent RSS Reader

This app was referred by Steven some time ago and I love it. It saves me a ton of time. I have it set to check the feeds every 15 minutes.

Here are just a few of the feeds I have, some I'm sure you'll recognize if you read the forums regularly.

Those are just a few, I'll add some of the more obscure ones later on.

Got any others you thing would interest me? Let me know, I'm always looking for a good news source to get a jump on things.

How many whatzits in my whozit?

This may come as a shock, but I am essentially a Neanderthal in a cave with a bright box and dialup.

I get my news from reading the daily paper cover to cover (after throwing out the sports section) and listening to NPR on the not bright box. My satellite doesn't receive most of the things listed in the TV Guide and I wouldn't watch them if it did. I have seen all the reality I can stomach, and there were no winners...Except for breaking technology & science little changes in the human condition. Once you know the names of the current players and what their positions are, its the same old game. (Guess I do follow 'sports' hm? ) From the local burglar to the hacker to the CEO that belongs in prison, its just a matter of scale and grasp.

I fill in the gaps reading about 1/3 of the Time mags that pile up in the bathroom, surfing when I have the time/feel like it and doing my best to engage others in conversation (God be praised for the invention of the pub). If I spend all my time reading about the news others are making, when will I find time to make news myself? How much information is enough? How much is too much?

I was incredibly blessed with the opportunity to speak with Barbara Jordan for a fleeting moment back when I aspired to a life in public affairs. I wanted her to know how much she had inspired me to be of service to the people. She pierced me with those unwavering eyes and asked me, "That's wonderful...what are you DOING about it?" I have spent the rest of my life trying to live up to an answer to that question.

So tell me, when in the world do you find time to read all that stuff? For me, I guess RSS stands for 'Really Slow Surfing'.

See you in the funny pages...

bem I can understand your conundrum and I know just how to fix it up.

First thing you need to do is get rid of all your pals in that pub you speak of. You seem to have some sort of 'life', what's up with that?

Next you need to call up the local paperboy and tell him to stop throwing the paper under the bushes so you won't have to venture outside to get your news. Nothing but slanted views there anyhows. And if the papers are like anything in AZ, you get ink on your hands there are more ads than actual content and most of the funnies ain't too funny.

Then of course we need to dump that dial up. check your local cable or satellite company. The problem you have with the satellite is you need to get the 'bundled' package. It's a well known secret in the industry that without this package, they relegate your home to the 'suckers' line and you can't get anything.

Once you've done that you can get yourself an RSS reader and have all the news that's fit to feed and loads more useless feeds and sit in the cozy comfort of your home and thereby get carpal tunnel syndrome, gain weight and get pale like the rest of us. Except me, I don't get pale, I have one of those 'factory tans'. ;)

I feel the same as Bem, I guess I never got into RSS . Why? Just out of old habits of watching news, browsing around, paper, same stuff. No pub buddies though, lol. **@ Being as how I usually have to post and run in a forum as it is, this may be a good idea for me as well. Then with all the great RSS links above , that should get me more than started. Don't get me wrong, I know about it, how to use it, etc... I just never thought about actually using it, never took my interest I guess but after reading above, I think I may just do that right now.

Cheers,

Paul

D00d, I was the same way, for a long time. And when Steven one day posted about the GreatNews Reader linked to here in the 'I Can't Live Without......' thread it totally changed the way I get all my news about everything. Aside from watching some TV, I get prolly 90% of my news that way. Granted, if you sit in front of a [;] PC 6-8 hours a day like I do, ya need it!! :lol:

I did have 132, after reading this thread I've reviewed my current feeds, now at 128. I use Google's reader at the moment. Will have to try the "The Intelligent RSS Reader", see if it speeds up my viewing pleasure.
