Feed Issues

There’s something wrong with Google Feed Sync (via FeedDemon) as compared to NewsGator’s deprecated service.

Over the last few months none of my own post have been showing up, so last week I logged into Google Reader and Ta-Da, 5 new posts, that were found “just now” in Google Reader, and then they appeared in FeedDemon.

But another issue with only using aggregation tools is that people keep changing there back-end blog engines and therefore break the feed link, thus they fall out of the news loop (Conor, Rowan), so once you discover this and change to the new feed URL, you’ve lost news.

Quite annoying.

Then there is sites that just disappear. Like Community Hacker, but while searching for it I found a new bot AI challenge site called hacker.org so its not all lost.
