As a general rule I *hate* web-based replacements for stand-alone
programs.  So, I am naturally curious why you phrased your
recommendation as you did. not just that you liked bloglines, but you
recommended any web-based RSS agrogator over a stand-alone one.  Why
would that be?

        Hi Ralph,
        I would recommend use of a web-based RSS feed aggregator instead
of a stand-alone piece of software.  The best, most accessible
aggregator is BlogLines at
        If you must use a stand-alone reader, Sharp Reader works
reasonably well.  It is available at  You
might also want to try the Thunderbird e-mail / RSS client from the
Mozilla Foundation at  I've found that it is not
perfect, but is reasonably accessible.
