How do I make everything appear in plain text in Mozilla Thunderbird? (using version 18.104.22.168 on Windows XP). I do not want to see any images, don't want to be asked if I want to see them, and I don't want anything to appear in HTML, including RSS feeds. I don't want to see people's cutesy stationary or Twitter's background colors when it notifies me of a new follower. I want black text on a white background, et rien de plus. [more inside]

What's a good alternative for Google Reader? My employer just started blocking Google Reader (via Websense), saying that it's using up too much bandwidth. (Yeah, sounds funny to me, too.) I suspect there's some alternatives that aren't blocked, but I really love Google Reader and miss being able to jump into it at work. I appreciate any suggestions. [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]

Bloglines is broken again. When it works, rarely, seldom perfectly, even then not for long, it's an excellent service. I dislike Google reader, it lacks, for me, the ease of reading. Maybe I need to try harder. But I wonder why someone doesn't buy Bloglines and make it work. Who ever runs it now can't seem to do it properly. Why doesn't someone buy it and fix it, or why isn't there a competitor that provides a reader that works. Besides Google reader are there any readers out there I don't know about?

I pride myself as being a pretty savy internet user. However, I am embarassed to say that I do not understand the RSS concept or even how it works. I have read about it and all but still my mind goes blank when I try to figure out how to use it in my day to day life online. Any suggestions for websites that explain it all so I can see if I can or should be expanding my use of it?

I would like to take a given RSS feed (e.g. MetaFilter's feed), and create a derivative feed containing only the items with YouTube links in the content, with the destination URLs changed to the YouTube links (rather than the source of those links). Does something like this already exist? If not, what's the simplest way to create it? I can write code if necessary, but would rather not if there's an alternative. [more inside]

Looking for a way to build a calendar of new/future album releases in GCal. Currently hand-entering release dates found on Amazon and elsewhere. There is bound to be a better way to do this with RSS, etc. Would like to be able to specify genre(s) and filter out re-issues, singles, EPs, multiple formats, etc - leaving only simple top results for full-length discs. This may be simpler than I am imagining, but should indeed be possible, even if it means using someplace besides Amazon as my source.

There are a number of subjects which I don't have a particular interest in, or don't have the time to spend researching, but I would still like to keep up to date on when new information comes up. For example, I have a friend who suffers from Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, a condition for which the most popular treatment currently is simply to prescribe lots of pain killers. It occurs to me occasionally to look it up and see if there have been any new developments, but I think it would be great if I could receive updates when they come up, perhaps in an RSSesque fashion. Is there an effective way to receive automatic updates on a subject like this?
