making sense of mayhem

I’ve installed feeds plus  which Steve Clayton’s blog introduced me to – Steve used to be a regular visitor at my workplace when my Microsoft involvement didn’t warrant any real dialogue,  a colleague mentioned his blog and to be honest that’s really what opened my eyes to blogging, as our account manager, who was a real person,  had metamorphosed into a general commentator on all thinks Microsoft, IT….  oh and Banksy  :)  he’s pretty often off topic, occasionally off message and provides a fairly UK-centric Microsoft view..

feeds plus is an add on for IE7 which frankly is my RSS feed reader ( I tried it in Outlook 2k7 and hated it) and it provides an easy aggregation which means you get to scan all your related feeds on one page – it’s reduced my blog catch up time from an hour to 30 minutes so well worth  the download.

it’ll also give you little desktop reminders a la  Outlook 2k3 onwards
