Geeks With Blogs

Tim Hibbard CEO for EnGraph software

I read two aggregated sites. .NET developers and Geekswithblogs. Every morning, I open up my RSSBandit and in each feed is usually 30 - 50 new posts. That's too much for my attention span and often I just skim through the titles until something catches my eye. So I have deleted the aggregated feeds and imported the OPML file and that way, I'll be able to trim out the duplicates, the non-English, and the boring ones. And I won't have to look at that daunting 50 unread posts number. Except the OPML file didn't import right with Geekswithblogs. The error from RSSBandit said:

There is no Unicode byte order mark. Cannot switch to Unicode
Whatever that means...I'm sure Jeff will figure it out.

I will have to get to a machine with .NET 1.1 and VS 2003 to fix it, but I will.

In the meantime, you can just add it yourself to the very beginning of the file using a hex editor (FFFE).
