RSS aggregation aggravation continued...


Thought I'd look at theoldreader.com - hit Import and gave it my Subscriptions.xml file to chew on...

"Thank you for uploading your OPML file. We will soon start importing your subscriptions, which might take up to several hours depending on the amount of feeds you have.

There are 20643 users in the import queue ahead of you."

LOL!   I think a lot of people are moving over today!   I'll come back to it...

I've tried Bloglines and Netvibes (same thing actually as Bloglines is now just rebadged Netvibes from what I can see).  Most stuff has gone over ok but frustratingly a few feeds are not working.  I have to go through and re-add and some of them then say "No feed" or similar - which is rubbish as they are working Reader - quick look on the forums seems a common complaint, if there is a problem and you are only subscriber they are unlikely to help.  Annoying!

Hence why I'll try theoldreader.com  - when it catches up, still it does put up a nice picture of a kitten when it isn't working
