The Odyssey is among the least-stolen vehicles in the U.S. I can't imagine the stolen resale or parts potential of a minivan is anywhere close to a sports car or SUV.

The police think it was taken for a joyride.


Who Would Steal a Honda Odyssey?

More to the point: Would Anyone Buy One? If so, then the answer to your question is anyone who can sell it to them for enough money to offset the effort and risk of stealing it.


I loved American Flagg!. I have a Howard Chaykin story from those days I will tell when I find the enraged letter he wrote about me to Comics Buyer's Guide.


Thanks for this: as a Nexus/ Badger/ American Flagg! fan now I'm interested in hearing about stuff I mainly missed as a Marvel kid back then. Having just finished the history of Marvel Comics, I think the story of every comic company veers to tragedy over time.


Call me when you get to "Teach Yourself Java 24 in 8 Hours."


I want to be able to render the blog again later with a different web design and possibly change how archive and tag pages are organized. If I just use Wget to download the site those things aren't possible.

Also, if an edit becomes necessary, I'd rather do it in the WXR file than edit HTML pages by hand.


Why not use something like HTTrack to crawl the WP site and grind out static versions of all the pages, instead of dealing with the WXR export?

I ask because I have worked with WXR files in the past, and while the format is mostly easy to understand without any reference, every time I thought I had it down I would find some new wrinkle in another blog's export file that screwed up my converter... making a WXR converter that works for a given blog is easy, making one that works for all blogs is not. (At least, that was my experience.)


i use feedbin.me

Does the job nicely and since it is open source. If anything does happen we can always make a new one.

I miss the sharing of GR and decided to make a tumblr for that part.


I use my own homegrown RSS-to-mbox script called feedmbox: bitbucket.org


I refused to try feedly because of its obfuscation of outbound URLs, which is just a dick move.

What do you mean? I just checked Feedly and couldn't find anything unusual with how links in a blog post were treated.


I'm an old Bloglines user that got shoved to Google Reader. Now, I'm using TheOldReader. They got their crap together after moving the data center. Although now they want to charge dollars, which is fine, especially after the Bloglines debacle, and I paid some money to keep them going.

At 1k+ feeds, I decided it would be worth it. I tried Tiny Tiny RSS, but I didn't like it. Feedly was having it's growth problems when I tried it. Changing readers is a pain, especially with the amount of feeds I have, you're never caught up.


I use NewsBlur, I think it's pretty great. InoReader is pretty good, too.

Digg Reader. It's buggy but best replicates the experience of Google Reader (RIP).

I used The Old Reader until overwork drove the developers insane.


On Ubuntu I use Akregator but always open an article in the external browser because many web sites will hang up the internal browser.

My wife uses a screen reader on Windows 8.1 so I put the feed links on a web page and Firefox renders the XML acceptably well on most sites.

On Android I use Feedly because the Android browsers render XML as text.


I use SharpReader (Link), a desktop RSS reader from 2003 which still works perfectly today. In 2005 support for Atom feeds was added, and they work fine too.

I use Tiny Tiny RSS installed in a subdomain of my site. It's been pretty flexible and I was able to easily setup a links blog syndicating my shared posts. When Google Reader shut down I used Fever for a bit because I liked it being on my own server but the features were really limiting so I switched to Feedly for a few months before finally settling on TT-RSS.


After the death of Google Reader, I tried all of the usual suspects. I ended up sticking with the digg reader -- imported my GR subscriptions, is fast, and maintains read state sync between web & mobile app versions.
