Technical Difficulties

My computer is on it's last leg.  It no longer keeps time so my RSS feed is not working.  At least I think that's why it's not working.

For a while, if I updated the date and time, the RSS feeds would update.  But that doesn't seem to be happening anymore.

So take an old and tired computer and add traveling too much, you get me way, way behind in reading the posts of my favorite blogs.

So in an attempt to rectify that, I've started moving my favorites from RSS to Google Reader.  At least that's what I'm trying to do.

I have a list of "Subscriptions" and "Blogs I'm Following."  I don't know what the difference is or how one gets into one list and not the other.

It also seems to take some time to get from the "Dashboard" into one of these lists.

So I'm waiting for the batches to run before I delete the blog from my RSS feed.

This process is taking a lot more time than I expected, but I'm looking forward to having regular access to my favorite blogs.

Since I don't use Google Reader, or subscriptions, I'm not certain of the difference, either, in the reader. However, a quick look at my reader only shows those sites that I follow via Google Friend.

Is the reader screen also showing you updates for those sites to which you subscribe?

P.S. - Sorry about your computer - may it R.I.P. When are you getting a new one?

The Reader and Subscriptions list both seem to behave like RSS. Most are going into the Reader list, so I guess I don't know how the subscriptions got there.

Anyway, I'm not sure when I'll get a new computer. It always seems that something else needs to happen first.
