Tiny Tiny RSS

Ever since Google announced they were shutting Reader down, I’ve been looking for a new RSS reader to replace it. I have since settled on Tiny Tiny RSS, a self-hosted package with a nice, clean interface. It also has a plugin system, which lets me use the Reeder app on my iPhone by having Tiny Tiny RSS emulate the Fever API.

They gave us folders in Google Reader… so why is this still such a mess?

A long, long time ago, I made an RSS feed for FoxTrot by Bill Amend, but it had since fallen through a crack in the pipes. Not to mention Bill Amend stopped doing dailies, and is now only doing a strip every Sunday, which made the feed even more obsolete.

That said, I’ve figured out the new URL’s Gocomics is using, and I’ve adjusted the script to display only strips from every Sunday. Here’s the URL:

Just add it to your favorite feed reader (Google Reader, Bloglines, etc.). If you’re not familiar with RSS, you might want to find out more about it.

Note: I’m aware of the fact that there is an official feed courtesy of Gocomics, but it’s useless.
