I've finally got this running on my 32-bit WinXP (and no, I have no intention of going to Vista - I'll wait for Windows 7 or 8 or whatever...)

Range of settings and functionality are excellent. I would however like a smaller window and a chance to check for feed updates faster than the minimum of 15 minutes.

It's now looking like a great .NET app! Dunno why the initial install over the weekend failed... was the home site down perhaps?

Out of curiosity I thought I would try this save me going to there web site all the time.

I have to say I love it chose a subject and you get a summery click on read more read and it opens a small browser window with the whole story.

Crashes witha Program Error immediately upon startign the program.

Attempting to use the error reporting pop-up simply failed with a 404 Page Not Found error!

Program looks like a good idea a la the earlier and not-maintained BBC ticker proggy - but at this stage, it looks like not-even-alpha code

I'll come back when it works a bit better
