Google Reader (RSS) Closing

Post by PhaseDMA »

Google Reader is closing on July 1st of this year. Does anyone have any suggestions for a RSS reader that is almost as good as what Google has?

You know the worst part? I was using Bloglines for a long time but migrated to Google to get as much of what I do in one place as possible. Apparently that was a mistake.

Have you been with them for a while?

We had a similar thing going on here for a while. We ran PHP4 on our older servers and PHP5 on our newer ones. It can be a hassle to do a 'blanket' upgrade across an entire shared server, because shit breaks.

They may have some 5.3 servers sitting around that they could move you to, but expect downtime if you go that route.

Yeah, my old host upgraded to 5.3 and it hosed my entire vBulletin install... i was running an old version, but yea, still... i get why they dont upgrade asap.

If I find any more things i need that require 5.3, then I may put an upgrade request in, but im not too concerned yet.
