Bloglines Blues

There's a scene early in Charles Stross's Accelerando in which Manfred Macx loses his future-glasses, and with them access to his email, schedules, software agents, et al. He essentially gets effective amnesia, unable to remember any of the things he had his agents and applications remembering for him.

I feel that way today. Bloglines hasn't updated my feeds in several hours, and I suddenly can't even remember what blogs I read, much less where to find them. Yeesh...

Two words for you:

Google. Reader.

You'll never look back. Just export your OPML from Bloglines, plug it in, and you're off.
Thanks for the tip, I'll check it out!

I've just set up my subscriptions in Google, and so far it looks good, except I don't see anything like the keyboard short-cut keys that Bloglines introduced a while back, that I've become *very* dependent on.
There are loads of shortcuts; I never use them myself, but I know a lot of people do. If you can't find a link to the list of them in the settings menu somewhere, try searching on Lifehacker - those folk have a post about everything.
Found 'em. Thanks! I'll give it a shot.
