20,000 feed items!
. You guys really work hard
OK, the selection of sites I check up daily barely reach the magic number, for reasons I disclose later. I usually go through the lighter sites in one rush, these include File Hippo, for the daily software updates, various emulation sites and Cybernetnews, which I recently started to check up in such fashion. The heavy sites come later, including Ars Technica, The Tech Report and ShackNews, the latter being a recent addition to replace a Spanish gaming site going downhill
And that's all. Why not more sites? Well, the three mentioned later always led to some other sites to complement information or to give the scoop about what's going on somewhere, particularly the last two, which, apart from working in a semi cooperative fashion, have this 'shortbread' thing which summarises what other important tech and gaming sites carry in the front page.
I'll probably change later (read: when I have time and stop procrastinating after the daily reading
) the process, to be RSS based, as it's faster (now I'm checking up the entire sites, and it's time consuming, much more than I wish) and I can add more sites (for that I need to sort my huge bookmarks file
). I also need a good reader... Now if most sites added properly written RSS feeds, instead of redacting mere link baits...
I think this qualifies as a rant
