Hi, uh...Brutal. Interesting alias. *smirk* I guess to answer your question, if you really meant it as a real question, and not some smartass remark, you could keep a backup OPML file of all of your RSS feeds so that if Feedlinx goes down, you could replace the Feedlinx stuff with the original batch of links. It's a PITA to do that, but I wouldn't expect it to happen regularly. And when you're using online services, you should always have a backup plan anyway, in case they do go down for whatever reason. However, as I posted in my latest blog entry, I converted all of my RSS feeds back to their regular links and I've stopped using Feedlinx. There were a few things it did that I didn't like, which I detailed in my latest blog post. I still think it would be fine for other people wishing for a way to sync their feeds among different devices. Feedlinx also offers the e-mailing capability, and a real-time (?) updated list of what Feedlinx users are reading, which is cool.

But what do you do if Feedlinx goes down?

[...] I was going to post a comment about GreatNews and RSS Bandit in response to Shannon (creator of Feedlinx) under my blog entry about Feedlinx. But I thought it would be better to make the comment into a blog entry so that more readers can see the initial impressions I have about the two RSS readers without having to dig through comment threads.  Both RSS readers earn points with me because they're freeware, yet they both have a lot of great features that are similar or surpass features on commercial/shareware RSS reader software.   I'm actually more inclined to buy/donate to software companies who offer their applications for free…but let's not get into a debate about that.

Thanks for stopping by, Shannon! Also, thanks so much for mentioning GreatNews. I installed it after I visited the developer's site, and I must say I think it's beating out RSS Bandit... I'm going to post my initial impressions for both programs in a short blog entry so that it's more visible to blog visitors than a comment under this post. I'll try out Feedlinx soon and let you know how it works out. I do have a tendency now to try out different RSS readers, just like I used to try out different themes to change the appearance of Windows. :)

I'm looking forward to your feedback on RSS Bandit. I've tried many readers. SharpReader is still one of my favorites, for its simplicity, but I'm trying out GreatNews right now. I still can't say that I've found the perfect reading experience. That's probably why I find Feedlinx personally useful. I switch feed readers every few weeks. With Feedlinx, I don't have to worry about trying to get my feed list back out of each reader. I also don't have to start from scratch trying to figure out which posts have already been read. Feedlinx is a great place to maintain my feed list -- it frees me up from worrying about individual readers. I hope your experience with Feedlinx is a great one. I can be contacted at for comments or questions.
