I checked into a couple of linux RSS readers last night and will do some 
more research as time allows.  There doesn't appear to be a whole lot

also and will review as time allows.  JP - the list was exhaustive and 
as you put it, I'm just not into rolling my own.  I prefer linux/OS but 
if it's going to need babysitting, screw it - let them pay for something 
that doesn't.

Keep those cards and letters coming.
