If anyone would like me to plugin your own preferred feed and send on a downloadable, installable application for your blog or site, let me know.
(* Requires windows XP and an internet connection to run properly. Also requires the Adobe Air Installer to be installed first, you can get it at http://get.adobe.com/air/)
