So, I managed to find a pretty darned up to date stub of a file that RSS Bandit could consume and rebuilt my feeds, but I'm still going to dump it for another application soon.
I don't plan on using Google reader, though. I don't like a browser based application when it comes to RSS. I want something that can exist without having to leave a browser open. However, having a feed reader that is accessible from anywhere is a nice thing to think about, so I'm going to write my own.
I've been needing to produce an application for a program I've signed up for, and an RSS reader that exposes a front end that's readable anywhere is a neat idea. It can act as a self contained reader, checking your feeds on a regular basis, and run in the background as a service.
Now to simply get motivated.
