Murphy's Law in action


I have been toying with the idea of moving from my nice thunderbird email+feeds setup back to an all-online solution.
I have been using a gmail account with POP3 access, so that part was no-brainer.
The feed reader was a bit more of a problem. I have used Bloglines in the past and enjoyed it except for a few small problems. I wanted to try Google reader (in the hope that they will eventually integrate it properly with gmail), and yesterday had quite a long play with it, but was finding quite a few shortcomings.
So what happens today, when I log in?
I see this! - they have changed it, literally overnight!!
The good news of this is, despite my wasted time yesterday, is that most of what I considered shortcomings in the old version have been addressed.
So far so good, I might think about doing a proper review later...
