Dinosaur Loyalty · I re­cent­ly up­grad­ed to the 2.1 be­ta of NetNewsWire, and it’s kind of cru­el soft­ware. In your sub­scrip­tion list, it clas­si­fies feeds that haven’t been post­ed to for a long time as “dinosaurs” and colours them brown. It’s kind of sad: Adam Bos­worth, Pat Chane­zon, John Cowan, Jonathon Dela­cour, Michael Klassen, Mark Pil­grim, Rat­tlesnake, Cyn­thia Webb, Frank Wierzbic­ki, Xana­da, JZ’s Apart­ness, BZim­mer, voic­es gone qui­et. Wel­l, I’m loy­al, I’m still sub­scribed to the ones that aren’t out-&-out gone. And there’s good news: half-a-dozen di­nosaurs turned out still to be there, their feeds had moved or mor­phed when I wasn’t look­ing. But for most of them, when I vis­it­ed the new digs I re­alised that I’d gone months with­out them and it hadn’t hurt too much so I just erased them. With the ex­cep­tion of Bram Co­hen and Brad DeLong. [Up­date: John Cowan’s back­!]
