    No more Mdigger?

    For the past few days, updating Mdigger feeds have been a pain. The data transfer is horribly slow and then it times out after only 30% of the feeds have been downloaded.
    Now nothing updates. Their website has completely changed and previous links to Forums now 404.
    Did I miss an announcement about Mdigger?Are they dropping WinMo?

    Truth be told, I'd be kinda lost without it. I update it every morning before my morning commute and ditto for the commute home.
    I have to find a replacement, one with the same simple yet effective interface/structure.

    Yup. Google reader is online only. That was what I didn't get. How many gigs do offline readers take to cache the feeds? I only read one out of ten or twenty stories in my feeds but the headlines keep me in touch. WSJ, NYTimes, Reuters, BBC, US News, the Guardian, Christian Science Monitor, the Register... Out in the country there aren't many places without cell service. I guess city people need offline readers when they get on the subway.
