FeedDemon and NewsGator are now free

NewsGator announced that they are making all their RSS readers free. I think that this an exciting news for everybody who loves reading blogs and other RSS feeds, like I do!

FeedDemon is by no comparison the best desktop RSS reader out there and Nick Bradbury announced that although FD is free now, they will not stop developing the product. I personally don’t use any desktop reader, but if you think that the desktop reader advantages are more important to you, then FeedDemon is the way to go. It is definitely one of the best crafted software titles on the Net.

The RSS reader I use, is the online version of NewsGator, which now offers all the features reserved for the paid editions in the past. For example there was a limit of one custom “Keyword Search” feed, now it’s gone! I prefer it to Google Reader, but they have to keep up with the smart new features Google are adding in their reader like shared feeds.

Diary/calendar template for 2008

Since quite a few people use MyInfo to keep a diary/journal, we decided to make this year’s diary template better then the previous.

In the new template, we have added a quick year/month overview, with links to each day entry.

The new (2008) calendar

Download MyInfo Diary template for 2008. In order to install it as a template, copy it in the Configuration/Templates subfolder under your MyInfo installation.
For MyInfo desktop this is “C:\Program Files\Milenix\MyInfo 4\Configuration\Templates” by default
For MyInfo portable it is “<drive>:\MyInfo 4 Portable\Configuration\Template” by default

Happy New Year and let’s hope that the majority of posts in your journal will be positive!
