It's fund drive time, and I have been a contributor and a host promoting fund drives for public and community radio. But a common complaint I hear from people is public radio encourages them to do their part, meaning contribute. The promise is the sooner you do, the sooner the drive will end. [more inside]

One of the nice things about Google Reader was that you could set up a folder and then get an RSS feed from that folder. I used this to put a kind of self-updating blogroll on a WordPress site.
Do any of the alternatives provide the same facility? I can't see it on Feedly or the Old Reader, and can't see it mentioned in earlier threads.

I subscribe to a lot of feeds via Google Reader. Whenever I use the search function, I get incomplete results, even if I narrow the search to only starred items, for example. How can I get Reader to show all items that match my search? I use Windows and Firefox.

I am trying to set a RSS feed using Microsoft outlook for www.reddit.com/r/programming reddit and hackernews(news.ycombinator.com). Outlook is my mail client to check my office mails. (email server using - POP3)
Bu when I say Subscribe now, it it opens outlook on my windows-PC ,but gives an error as below :-
"Outlook cannot download the RSS content from http://www.reddit.com/rss because of problem connecting to server.
Same error occurs when I tried to subscribe to hackernews(http://news.ycombinator.com/rss as well.
So something to do with Outlook settings or something? This is at office PC which is behind a router/firewall. http://news.ycombinator.com/rss
1.What is the problem here. Do I need to change some setting in outlook for this RSS feed?
2.How can i fix this to see Hackernews RSS feeds using my outlook?

Very active one year old with G button (MIC-key low profile) During night feeds and traveling in car how do I keep her Button from being pulled? It has come out once before in the crib by her moving so much the slack in the feeding tube got caught in crib and pulled out. It was painful for her since the balloon was fully inflated. I want to keep this from happening again. How do other parents keep thier kids g buttons and tube feeding cord protected at night. She is a wiggly thing and often turns in her sleep many times from belly to back and forth. The feeding is necessary and cannot be missed. [more inside]

So frustrated... For the past two months my GoogleReader has been making my unread items expire (i.e., not show up in the "new items" feed view) in far less than the standard 30 days. Right now I've got things about 10 days old, at one point it was down to three or four days. Why? And how the heck can I fix this? Old news is still good news! [more inside]

One of the most obnoxious features of Thunderbird-as-RSS-reader is that when checking feeds it will display "http://feedurl.com/feed.xml is not a valid feed" in the status bar, but there doesn't seem to be any actual log of the broken ones anywhere, nor does there seem to be any way to view the errors as a list. I can export my list of feeds to an OPML file, but the only OPML validators i've been able to find online only tell me if the opml file itself is a valid format, not whether any of the linked-to xml files are either 404-ing or otherwise broken.
This leads to me to my followup:
1) Is there any way for Thunderbird to give me a list of feeds it considers to be broken and unretrievable
2) is there an online service that can take an opml file and check the links for validity?

I'd like a Flash video player of my video podcast on the web site, and a high-quality (960x540 should work) video file in the podcast feed.
I'm currently using WordPress
to manage the feed and video. But I can see why some people who don't want to install QuickTime might not be able to see the show. [more inside]

I use google reader as a feed reader. Recently some of my feeds seem to be getting doubled up. I don't really know what happening but when i read I will see and article and then a day later the same story will show up as unread again. It is really starting to bug me. Any ideas?

I'm looking for blogs that are focused on linking to good, interesting photos. The type of photo doesn't really matter. Photojournalism and fine art, landscapes, nature, street, wildlife, etc are all great (oversaturated stock photos that look like they belong on inspirational posters are not great). I'm not looking for blogs that feature the work of a single photographer. I am looking for blogs that express the POV of one person or a small group of people about what they find interesting.

I'm looking to keep in tune with the funny side of life and even improve my sense of humour.
Basically I find if I regularly read jokes I seem to enjoy life more and even start making ones up myself.
I like using rss to keep up with my favourite sites and I really love the idea of a website where people submit new jokes everyday and they are put into a feed which I can easily access.
Does anything like this exist?
