A place to store my thoughts until I figure out what to do with them.

One thing I did not mention in the original post, but is worth noting, RSS is the technology behind how podcasts work. iTunes, or other podcatching software, is a fancy RSS reader that looks for new content within the RSS feed that contains a media file. It could be audio or video. iTunes also picks up PDF files enclosed within an RSS feed.

I played with Sage in the past and could not remember why I did not care for it. I tried it again today and remember very clearly why. It could have to do with the fact that my Internet connection, though "high speed," is still only 8% as fast as the average broadband in the US. Sage works very slowly for me. I am going to try it for a few days though. I have imported all my feeds from my main reader software. I have not found a way to quickly mark all feeds as read. I subscribe to 43 feeds and it is taking me about 13 seconds per feed just to load them up the first time so that I can really start using the software. In contrast it takes 4 seconds to mark all 43 feeds as read in my current software. My current software is all client side. Therefore, it grabs the feed headers every 10 minutes (or whatever time I set) and then I have them on my end, I don't have to wait for the headers to load from the web each time I look at the reader. The individual posts are loaded on demand, but not the headers. With Sage, everything is loaded on demand, therefore slowing you way down if you don't have a quick connection. Sage seems easy enough to set up and subscribe to a feed though. That is a huge plus.

Another thing that my RSS feed does for me is trigger my mo(bile)blog plugin 'Cronless Postie' to check my special email account for email to be included as a post on the blog. It's pretty cool...

I use Sage and Foxmarks to keep my feeds synchronized between work and home. I could probably fiddle with my Google Reader but with Sage, if my wife is logged into her Google account, I can still hit the refresh of my Sage and see if there is anything new. I tried bloglines, but I just didn't get used to it, because I have to remember to login each time with Sage I do not. Although, Sage doesn't have a browse button on it to search for new content on the web, but Sage will check a website for RSS feeds. This way, if I go to a Blogger site, for example, I click the feed search button and Sage will detect the feeds available, if any. If I add the feed through Sage, it sends the feed bookmark to my bookmarks and then Foxmarks syncs up each time I close Firefox and I don't have to enter RSS feeds in nice. But all in all, RSS makes me lazy, I mean, more productive as I don't have to spend time checking to see if there is new content. Except for the few that have the RSS feeds off so they check to see if there are any stalkers coming to their website. As for me, I rarely check my website stats. So, I could have some stalkers out there and not even know it.
