|02:01 am - Formula One and counting|
The first Formula One race of the new season starts in less than an hour. I've been meaning to post some comments on it all day, but haven't got round to it. However, just so I can get some predictions down before the first race: Ferrari 1-2, Williams and MacLaren to get exactly one scoring finisher between them, four of the six BARs, Saubers and Renaults to score points and someone really unlikely to pick up a sneaky point for eighth as there are no more than ten finishers. It's down now so we can all laugh later.
syn_promo rocks. Just one post there and my syndication unit consumption has already dropped from 9.880 units to 8.579. (And falling - please keep adding lots of nice RDF feeds so the prices get cheaper and I can add more!)

Are you a Mac or Windows user? I'd recommend NetNewsWire if you're the former. Amphetadesk for the latter, though it leaves much to be desired for me.
Have you seen Rock Scissors Blog
? No feed as of yet, they're looking into getting one. More RPG stuff than boardgames, but still good. One of the authors has an LJ (bruceb
I saw the Board Games post. Forwarded it to a friend who is an avid game collector, if not player. He may pop in anonymously to comment (he doesn't have an LJ). Don't tell him it was me. :)
I do d20 mostly now in various forms - 3e, Wheel of Time, and now a d20 Modern game. Also in a systemless email game. Have done lots of Amber gaming, but am burned out on that now.
The latter. Have tried Amphetadesk, didn't like it. Have also tried FeedReader and liked that even less. Am reasonably pleased with LJ's integration of RSS feeds so I'll probably stick with that for the foreseeable.
I think I'd seen RSB in passing before, probably linked to from costikyan
somewhere along the line. Should your board game collector friend drop by, your secret is safe with me! (Oh, I have a couple of codes available if he ever decides he needs one...)
