2500 downloads and counting! The Power of the Intar-Webz[tm] never ceases to amaze me. I remember way back in the Old Days, when freeware was only to be had by floppy disk or modem; back then, it was difficult to imagine a few dozen people, let alone thousands, using some random software you’d put out. Nowadays, between blogs and twitter, word seems to spread like wildfire.
So, just for grins, I decided to start a Snackr twitter account. Follow snackr on twitter to get up-to-the-minute news about test builds, new releases, and what I’m having for lunch.
Web 2.0-ness aside, I’ve also put up a test build of Snackr, version 0.31, that should properly display non-Western characters, and fixes a couple of other bugs (including adding multi-select in the feed list, so you can delete a bunch of feeds at once). If you read this post, I’d appreciate it if you’d install it and try it out, and let me know if it seems to be working for you.
I’ll probably fix a few more bugs before making a new official build, which will arrive through the standard autoupdate mechanism; if you install this test build manually, you should still get the next official build when I put it up.
