Bye bye Freshmeat too ?...
Well I, for one, am really sorry to hear this. I did know about the nntp feed and had been using it exclusively for the last ten years or so.
With a proper (scoring) newsreader it was child's play to identify interesting items even if the daily list was long.
After wondering for a while why my newsreader wouldn't connect anymore I came here and got the bad news. I also finally created an account (which I had been doing fine without for all that time) to see if I could filter and view my way back to what I had before.
Sadly, I can't make any sense of the undocumented jumble that is "my FM", not to mention RSS. I'm so stupid I can't understand how I could teel it "show me all updates concerning Python projects, oh and this project too, and this one, although they are not Python". Doesn't sound complicated right ? It was darn easy with the nntp feed.
And I don't want it in my mailbox either - maybe on a dynamic page I can bookmark, or a custom RSS feed. But if I can't go back to the level of convenience I had before, I'll have to give up of FM altogether, which would be a shame.
