My problem – I use Google Reader, and I have a folder called Revit Feeds. This folder has been shared, and then the resulting feed has been burnt with FeedBurner.
This is the Revit feed:
This is the BIM feed:
I’m expecting all of this to turn off tomorrow, or soon after. This is how I view and archive Revit news to PDF, using this method. Now, what can I replace this with?
The answer? Nothing. Easy. Yet.
I have tried numerous so called ‘replacements’ and nothing comes close. I don’t want a flipboard or some artsy style, I just want to be able to fast scroll until I find some really fresh Revit information. Here are a few that I’ve tried:
- The Old Reader
These are the main things I want:
- fast, clean reading
- ability to create a curated list of blogs and generate a new RSS from that
- ability to archive feeds (including all images) to local filesystem for easy indexing and searching
Now, I’m hoping one of you has the answer for me 🙂
In the meantime, I am going to use The Old Reader for pure reading. For archiving…I’m not sure yet.
