I’ve been trying for a while to figure out how best to read blogs.
Right now I use three different methods — I use iGoogle for some things, plain old web browsing for some, and then gnus for one feed. What a pain! I’ve also tried other readers in the past — a couple web-based one, Azureus, maybe something else.
None of these are ideal for me. I think what I would really like is to use Gnus for everything, except Gnus blocks annoyingly while fetching the feeds. So, I could use nntp//rss. But then I am setting up and configuring yet another program, setting it up to run when I log in, forgetting to copy its configuration to my laptop, etc.
I wish there were “gmane for rss” — a site that ran nttp//rss for me and let me subscribe to any old feed using my news reader. Anybody know of one?
Wait! I have other complaints too! I’ll save those for later… I’m turning into the sort of person who wishes RSS were NNTP and that Common Lisp were popular again. What is happening to me?!?
