Is there a good way to keep track of everything I am interested in that is updating online? Some kind of huge private dashboard that is customizable. RSS feeds alone aren't getting it done. [more inside]

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?

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?

Looking for a tool that can take multiple RSS feeds, strip duplicate entries and output a single feed. None of the RSS meshing tools I'm seeing seem to offer the duplicate removal. I'm subscribed to searches through 20+ feeds to make sure I catch all available references of a URL on blogs, courtesy of MonitorThis
, but the number of duplicates is becoming a big problem.

I have been using reblog
to combine two feeds (for a blog
and a forum
) which I then publish through Feedburner. What I want to do is have the blog
part of my feed update normally (i.e. individual posts) and the forum
part of my feed compiled into a daily link list (which itself is published as if it were ONE feed post each day)... What ways exist for me to do this? [more inside]

I'm starting a new blog on a wide-ranging and ever-shifting set of topics, and I want to let my readers choose which of those topics to follow via RSS. I could offer tons of separate feeds, but many of these would be ephemeral, so I'd want to make it really easy to unsubscribe. Ideally, each user would get a single custom feed, the content of which they could control from my site (see here
). Is there any way of doing this? [more inside]
