    Well? have you fixed it yet?

    I was wondering for a moment who this Bobo Harris was. I’m not switching away from Google Reader yet – I use the Reeder app to access it, and they are promising an alternative before GR dies, so I’m waiting to see what they offer.

      Sorry – Bobo Hara (I think he was in the second Star Wars film).

      I’m rather upset about Google’s decision to kill Reader. Upset enough that Google the cat might get a new name.

      After reading this article I thought Old Reader might be my best bet, but the queue to import feeds from Google Reader is just brutal – it’s taken me five days to get from 32,019th to 26,025th in line, and apparently the import might take several days once it starts. There should still be time to try it before GR dies though. I’m also giving Feedly a try, but don’t like it much – I can’t for the life of me figure out how to sort folders and then sites within folders alphabetically. There’s a reason I put feeds from all the local events whose tickets sell out within hours of posting an event, and other stuff I don’t want to miss, in a folder called “A1 events”, and it aint so they get buried halfway down my list of hundreds of feeds…

      So, Newsblur looks like the winner right now. It’ll take a bit of getting used to to pay for a service I used to get for free, but it’s only $2 a month and the site just looks and feels “right” to me in a way I can’t define, but really like!
