What a difference four years makes:


Read the link and come back….

Check out the directory listing at the top of the page. Smile at Dave's old picture. Remember where we came from and read some of the posts. Not much has changed in concept (convince people to use new technology in new ways) but the adoption rate is *much* larger.

Radio's aggregator has made me the happiest the most often, but it's doing something I can't control: deleting subscriptions. There's a pref setting “Number of errors before automatic unsubscribe” and you can put any number in there you want. Somehow, though, I've lost two subscriptions in the last three days.

I find this frustrating, but according to Steven Covey, “urgent but not important”. The event log is informative on some things, but not this. My only recourse is to go back to a page published last week and compare the subscription list (generated by mySubscriptions.opml at the time) to the one I currently have.

I wonder what new management will do for Userland? More money? More resources? Even better software?
