Just last week I downloaded v9.4.1 and it’s already outdated? …it’s all Bush’s fault. Ron Atkinson July 20, 2004 Pfff. Feed Demon is far better, and doesn’t require any ‘.net framework’ either. Whatever that is. Feed demon is at: http://www.bradsoft.com/feeddemon/index.asp It’s the only bit of shareware I’ve found useful enough to pay for in about the last two years. Rob July 20, 2004 Personally, I like Bloglines. They’ve got the features I need and I like the fact that I can access it from any computer on the web. That, coupled with access to my blog and Gmail account, allows me complete freedom when I’m on the road. Any computer with internet access can quickly become my blogging station. StarBanker July 21, 2004 I have occasionally use FeedReader and have tried BlogMatrix. But here is a question: I have tried to find out why my C-panel stats vary so widely from my on web page stats like Sitemeter. Is there some way that RSS/XML feeds could be tracked with sitemeter? I assume that AWStats is counting them because it is the only way I can figure than Sitemeter is reading about 60%-70% of the traffic. Digger July 21, 2004 SharpReader had some sort of memory leak for me so I had to find another option. I found feedreader at http://www.feedreader.com and have been using it for a week or so. Seems simple and does its job, that’s all I need. Sometimes I wonder why apps try to do everything (like winamp going from a simple quick music app to some beastly app including a browser and everything else under the sun). Boyd July 21, 2004 I don’t have much faith in the accuracy of Sitemeter, StarBanker, although I’ll freely admit that some of the shortcomings may me my inadequate inclusion of their code on my pages. Sitemeter reports 14 page views for my site yesterday, but my ISP’s statistics package reports 57 views for my main blog page alone, not even counting individual posts, archives, etc. I don’t know why I still have their code in my pages. It’s truly useless to me. Boyd July 21, 2004 Jackson has denied adopting quads. King of Fools July 21, 2004 I just loaded Sage (Firefox Extension) and it is working pretty well for me. Integration with the browser I use is pretty handy.
