A Blog of Very Little Brain

'What does Crustimoney Proseedcake mean?' said Pooh. 'For I am a Bear of Very Little Brain, and long words Bother me.'

And that’s progress!

Here is, verbatim, the latest announcement from my ever-trusted online RSS feed reader, Bloglines (the weird spaces in words are in the original):

You might have noticed a few fancy little changes we’ve made to your feed tree o n the left pane today. You’ll like them even more when you learn what’s behind t he scenes!
We no longer update the entire left pane when the unread or “kept as new” co unts change. Now the counts update in place with a fading yellow indicator. The result is a f aster, more pleasant way to cruise through your feeds, especially for those quick on the hotkeys.

The result? My left-pane-feed-tree now shows NOTHING. Apparently they forgot to check whether this latest and greatest works on Opera.

  1. The wording has been fixed. We are looking into the opera issue.

  2. It is working for me with Opera 9.02 in Linux.

  3. Hello,

    I have tested it with Opera 9 on Windows XP and it is working for me. What Opera version and what OS are you using?

    Is there any other information about the problem so we can try to reproduce this?

  4. Opera 9.02 on Windows XP sp2, it’s working on IE, though. I’m checking to see I didn’t disable anything that might cause this

  5. Nope, nothing. All is as it was. I even tried editing (empty) and adding a feed (didn’t show up as well). No idea.

  6. Hi Erez,

    I’m the engineer at bloglines responsible for the tree. If you would, please fire me an email with the email address you use to login to Bloglines and we’ll figure this out. Thanks!

  7. […] Just a week ago, I vehemently complained about Bloglines new interface non-interfacing with my browser. Well, guess what, not only I was flooded with concerned comments from the good folks over at Bloglines, but I got on a personal email correspondence with one of their developers who went through tons of JS errors to try to identify the problem. Eventually, not only it wasn’t caused on their side, but they definitely won me all over. In view of the recent Google Reader relaunch, I can already tell that not many people are going to switch from Bloglines, and with this level of service, probably none will.

  8. Hi Erez,

    Can you share with me (or the world at large), what the solution was? I’m having the same problem (Opera 9.02, WinXP SP2, no tree on left).

  9. I’ll be buggered if I remember. I think it had to do with clearing all saved data (Tools> Delete Private Data> Click on “Details”> make sure you don’t delete cookies or close or tabs)
    I’ll dig around the email thread to see what was the final solution
