zaine ridling is one of the active members here; if you aren't reading his blog, you don't know what you are missing.

very opinionated, very entertaining, very insightful.

Thanks mouser, and my mom tells me I have a bad attitude! Something happened with the FeedDemon RSS reader software this past week that is extremely rare in software — a company changed its mind because users wrote in droves their wish for it to remain a standalone app. A cautionary tale about making a bad (embarrassing?) business decision right. Rare indeed.

I agree with Zaine an uncannily-high percentage of the time, even on issues not related to software.

I only wish he'd allow comments in the blog.

I should allow them again, but for the first four months or so I was getting a ton of comment spam from (not-so-nice) christians on every post, so I cut it off. On the next post, I will. Thanks for the kind words, guys.

comments are back on at zaine's blog :)

btw is zaine's blog the only blog that combines software commentary mixed with politically incorrect posts about naked women that exist on the planet earth?  i challenge you to find another.

ps.
zaine i read a while back in your blog that you were planning some changes on your great software list page.. have you put these in place yet? or is that plan still operative?
