Bloglines: Now Totally Fast

Wow. Okay so bloglines has updated their beta and it does seem really fast. At this point the difference between google and bloglines is really just small interface differences. which interface do I like better? I have no idea. I left bloglines awhile go and now I’m considering possibly switching back.

Over the next couple of week I think I’m going to be using both and see which I settle on. I left bloglines really frustrated that their interface was too slow and painful to use. But they might have finally one upped google and I’d be excited to see them gain back some of the respect they once had.

Last Terry Goodkind Book

The last Terry Goodkind book comes out November 13th. I’ve been reading this series for about six years and and have slowly gotten sick of everything in the books besides the main plot line which I must follow to conclusion or the lack of closure will kill me. Here’s hoping he just ends it. He’s already threaten to write other books set in the same world. My stomach turns at the thought of it.


Shelfari is evil negligent? (not sure if negligent is any better. Details in the comments). Pass it on. (I never really liked them anyway) (via Keri)

How Bacn Can Become Spam

The term bacn has been around for a while now. But it can easily turn in to spam.

I sign up for a lot of sites and I will often opt in to their emails. After a while though I might want to opt back out. Some companies are good and provide a 1 click or even 2 click way to stop getting email.

Buy if you require me to log in to unsubscribe then you have lost my trust. I’m now marked you as spam. I know if enough people do the same you will start having a lot of trouble getting in to the inbox.

So I’m just sending out my warning now. Let me unsubscribe in piece or feel the wrath of my spam button.
