It’s almost 2am, so I really need to get to bed. Before that, however, I’d like to share some really good new software I’ve come across lately. The first is Gaim. Gaim is an IM client for Windows/Linux that can log into AIM, ICQ, MSN, Yahoo, Jabber, and others. I know that a lot of [...]
Have you ever wanted to create your own online RSS/Atom feed reader? Did you fiddle around with other solutions that just plain sucked? Did you try to use the awesome Magpie RSS, and just couldn’t get it to work like you wanted? Personally, I’m still fairly new to PHP, but I have a solid understanding [...]

I’ve been using the Feed Demon RSS reader since 1.0 rc4, which was around November-ish. I liked it so much, that when 1.0 went final in January, I bought a license.
