Trying to set up a new rss reader to replace my Google Reader.

Feedly UI was awful and hard to use. Just terrible.

Newsblur was much better on the UI and actual showing of the feeds. But it can't find half of the blogs I read, and one I added by accident keeps coming back every time I delete it. :/

Edit: Okay, Newsblur is a total disaster. I cannot delete feeds, I can't log into the website to try and do it there (logging in to the website locks you out of every page except the one to buy a premium account), I can't delete my account (see previous logging in issue) and I can't opt out of receiving emails (same again).

I just went with Feedly until I got used to it. I tried The Old Reader for a little while, but at least for me it was slow as dirt.

If the Feedly app doesn't work for you, you might try http://twentyfivesquares.com/press/, it uses the Feedly backend cloud but with a different front end.

Thanks, I'll check it out. Screenshots look promising.

The thing with Feedly was, it did great with pulling in the feeds from Reader, but did dumb things like putting them all into a single feed with no option to view by blog on the main page, only showing latest unread but calling it "All", and not really giving any clue what half the menus did.

I went with Feedbin. It's $3/month but worth it.

The person who designed the felhunter phase in the warlock green fire quest must burn in fire. In green fire, obviously.

I've been using Feedly for now, but I agree its interface is crap compared to google reader. Feedbin looks pretty nice though, maybe I'll give that a try.

I want a backend service that lets me plug in my reader of choice into it. As long as Fever gains support I'll be happy.

Bah @ getting several very solid applicants from classes we just can't fit in the roster no matter how willing we are.

Meanwhile, with the not-so-awesome quality of recent applicants, we decided to just "fuck this" and do 10-man untill SoO.

Tried one from this which, once again, wouldn't find or load my feeds, but then I finally went for gReader - used to be a google reader clone, but now uses Feedly or The Old Reader as options. I logged in via Feedly and it automatically pulled in all the feeds I'd imported from Google Reader to Feedly yesterday, and it's actually working pretty good. Having to go through every feed individually to teach it to display all articles and not just unread ones, though.

gReader displays a small banner ad at the bottom of the screen when reading articles, but I'm willing to live with that after the pain I've gone through with all the ad-free apps.

Edit: Arg. Right now gReader is still trying to use Google Reader for search, so I can't add new feeds. At the minute I've got the feeds I already had, though.

I soloed Hodir 25, but what a PITA it was both to get there and to kill him. And he didn't give me his shield.

To think that I had it in WotLK but I deleted it because it was the less prestigious one. :(

Happened on our kill too, newsom. Something about I wasn't eligible to roll on the boss. Put in a ticket and Blizzard was like "better luck next time".

I got demanded to leave a LFR and proposed to be kicked after a lei shen wipe.

What happened:
- Tanks don't know what to do, end up disabling the 2 pillars diametrically opposed.
- People get destroyed by the whip/thunderstruck in p3 as they don't know where to run.
- We wipe.
- I complain about the clueleessness of the tanks and that they should have read tactics or have asked for them.
- Druid tank goes insisting that's the heroic tactic and I should shut up.
- People support him.
- I get called "mr 40k dps", he links the dmgmeter when I'm in fact 20th with 40k dps, and get told I'm being carried so should shut up.
- I leave.

Fact: I was healing, and was first by a 15% margin over the second. Sigh.
Just the idea of having to repeat Lei Shen LFR 2 times this week makes me dread...

Step 4. Don't complain. Ask if they are unfamiliar with what to do. If they reply they do not know what to do explain what to do. If you are met with stone silence explain what to do any way.

Then you have assholes who call people who ask how to do a fight horrible and scrubs.

So fuck everyone, I hope they all die from horrible painful diseases.
