Annals of blogging

There are 951 unread items in my RSS reader’s Science section. There are a whopping 10992 unread articles over all. They will not all get read.

    I am afraid to even open my Google Reader these days – there must be hundreds of thousands of items….

    I find your lack of dedication disturbing. Throwing away all those articles unread – do you know there are children starving for articles in China?

    Waste not, want not.

    234 mine says. Sb an a bunch of others. I have an excuse, however. I mean, not a job or other interfering stuff like that, but every so often Google Reader decides to lock me out. It once did it for weeks. Not browser related, I have no idea why. The header comes up, “Done” pops up at the bottom, but no feeds. Someone on some thread or other mentioned putting an ‘s’ after the usual http, but that never worked for me either, until today. It did work, but slows it to a crawl on an already crappy dialup. And I can’t seem to un-‘s’ it after I get in. I’ve also tricked it into letting me in by hitting the ‘subscribe’ button on any web page. Neither trick is reliable. I eventually went looking for another feed reader the last time I couldn’t get in for days. Chose Bloglines more or less at random. I prefer GR, but still have Bloglines in the wings for those days I can’t get in. That’s why it’s only up to, uh, 241 now. gotta go… rb

    Mine just says 1000+….all the time. I don’t know why I don’t just go ahead and prune off all the stuff I don’t really read. Probably for the same reason I never throw anything away…..
