Still tired. I seem unable to sleep enough, and then spend the whole day tiring myself out further :) Busy day of meetings as our company absorbs our growth plans, and then a hard 30-miler with my friend and colleague Craig.

Pre-report: Battery life A-OK. Lovin' it. I always say "precelebration is the root of all failure", so I don't mean to Pre-celebrate :) but so far so good.

I'm not sure I agree with that; sure, there are a lot of bad feeds, but a lot of good ones too. Just stick with me :) Anyway the main point is Fever, a new feed reader, which filters feeds based on keywords etc., and in theory at least can extract information from data...
