Technically Speaking All in on IT

Now that I have made the switch to Windows Vista full time I have had to re-think my RSS reader. I originally switched to RSS Bandit after being a long time FeedDemon user one day when FeedDemon pushed me over the edge with its activation. I work as a consultant and systems engineer and I love to beta test software and generally experiment. As such, I rebuild my laptop often. One to many times as far as FeedDemon was concerned. The first time it happened their support team was quick to clean it up. The next time it was weeks and in frustration I switched to a free RSS reader. I had heard good things about RSS Bandit and I wasn't disappointed. It is a fine reader and I loved it. Until I switched to Windows Vista. It has an annoying, and to its credit, documented bug that causes it to freeze every time you access a menu. Dare says it will be fixed in the next version code-named Jubilee. In the meantime, however, it is driving me nuts. If anyone has a meantime fix I would love to hear it! Otherwise, I am back to FeedDemon for now.

I work for NewsGator in Technical Support.

We've increased the number of activations available so you shouldn't run into activation issues (as often) with FeedDemon now.

Also, you can always preemptively email us to request a reset before you rebuild your system.

You should give GreatNews a try. Free.
Plus, it can run as a "Portable" app; it doesn't need to be installed.

I keep it on my USB drive and run from there...
