I suspect he uses Outlook 2000. His Webcasts suggest this. In any case, I
binned him. He RSS feed has something buggy, which causes my feeds reader
to crash (take 100% of the CPU capacity to be precise). This has happened
3-4 times already and has been rather disastrous as it affected other JRE
applications (notably Firefox and Thunderbirds). Mind you, this RSS reader
(RSSOwl) has not crashed since I started using it in 2004. When it
crashes, items that I read in the sessions will remain marked as unread,
which is a /huge/ pain.
Rather sadly, I will have to admit that Pirillo uses WordPress (on a WAMP
stack I suspect). It must be some third-party plug-in that breaks things,
if not the W in WAMP. Basically, I was among the ones to help him migrate
to WordPress and some days ago he reported a bug (plug-in supposedly
incompatible with 2.0), but we told him it must be Windows. Works fine for
everybody else anyway...
So, there ya go... the fine relief in 'mark all as read' or even
unsubscribe. When I did this to Scoble, this started a riot.
