[wplug] [wplug-announce] Tiny Tiny RSS up and running

Good morning, everyone!

Several months ago, Google announced that it was discontinuing Google 
Reader, its wildly popular RSS news aggregator. In response, I set up a 
private instance[1] of Tiny Tiny RSS, a GPL-licensed news aggregator, on 
WPLUG.org and invited the general public to help test it. You can read my 
original announcement here.[2]

I believe we've finally gotten all the kinks worked out. Updating to version 
1.8 has fixed the speed problems, and the sharing plugins no longer 
mysteriously disappear. I've also installed a couple of new themes, 
including one based on Google Reader.

WPLUG's Tiny Tiny RSS server is finished. It will become a member-only 
service from this point forward. If you were one of the non-members who 
helped us test it, I will contact you with instructions on how to join WPLUG. 
Dues are just $20 for a year of membership; you'd easily pay more than 
that for a year of hosted RSS service. so Joining WPLUG is a good deal.

Since Tiny Tiny RSS is GPL software, you could conceivably install your own 
instance. I want to set our server apart by offering to set up plugins for 
custom keymaps or sharing services that you'd like to use. If I can't find an 
existing plugin, I'll try to write one myself. 

Send me an email at vicechair at wplug.org[3] if you want to sign up for Tiny 
Tiny RSS or you need help using it.
