My Second Reclaim

First one was Posterous. More on that later.

Ashes on my iPad and yes I get the Evernote irony.

Ashes on my iPad and yes I get the Evernote irony.

When Google got rid of gReader I thought of two things. Why did I switch to it a few years back? Why should I think that it won’t happen again if using, Flipboard, Feedly etc? So, even though this is aggregated content from many others, reading my feeds is what I do daily and I want to control how that gets to me as much as I can. I do totally agree with this.

After reading a Darcy Norman post I tried out Fever. For the most part I have been happy. More happier yesterday when I discovered Ashes as my iPad has become my professional reading tool of choice. Things do feel a bit slower and I wonder how that might change if and when the Reeder app is released. But I can live with this and the fact my server space is not quite the same as Google’s. I also need to look, a bit more critically, at what I actually have in my feeds.

So:

  • go to Google Take out and get your feeds
  • test Fever out on your server (it failed on one of my spaces one of the reasons I am moving)
  • pay 30 bucks and install it
  • upload your OPML file
  • browse your feeds
  • set up a cron job so you don’t have to wait
  • and if you want get, ashes for your iPhone and iPad or Reeder for your iPhone

Blast from the past. More than a few things gone from here. I did take this from my gDrive acount and add to my blog via a SlideDeck.
