I do have a RSS feed from this blog, but I do wonder where it ends up. Most start ups seem to like to fatten themselves up for IPOs with unique data and users, so don't want to import feeds. I tried to with Tumblr for example this week, only to find that feature had been disabled a couple of years ago. Most content creators prefer not to have their content displayed on other sites with no payment for providing that content. I am trying out Symbaloo right now, and had connected my RSS feed to that. If you are successfully using a RSS aggregator or self made web portal I'd love to hear from you.Read more >>>

Oooh ! I'm really very interested in the potential of this. My school laptop is pretty much locked down so even adding my own desk top image or choosing the default browser is a no no.

I'm going to install it on my school laptop then take a screen grab for you in a month or so to see if it served any practical purpose. Any aesthetic and navigation improvements is a plus in my book. I use safari at home so I have become used to the Top Sites feature allowing me to go to my favourite place in one go. I'm hoping that updating the screen on my IE browser will update the version I have in safari. Guess I'll have to join up then !Read more >>>
