- I thought everybody was switching to Wordpress.

- tsync sounds alright for basic users - I think I'd stick with SVN though.

- Yahoo Weather RSS - nice! Yahoo has made good strides in making its content available as RSS. I'd like to see much much more. Like in Yahoo Finance - RSS for price points, earnings announcements, dividends, who knows? Speaking of Y!Finance - I really really wish the CSV data in the industries sections had the stock symbols.

Michael Fagan: MSN Search knows what they’re doing. Or not...

I just don't see why this is so hard; and why everyone isn't clamoring for it. E.g. who wants to scan every friggin' slashdot post when all you really want to know is when a post appears with your keyword in it -- e.g. "Solaris" for me.
(Until something someone gets this right, I've been doing feed-specific searching by using Aaron Swartz' rss2email in a cron job piped to procmail.)
