This is a random technology gripe, but I wanted to throw it out there in case anyone else was experiencing this.
Did Digg change the way they’re presenting their RSS feeds? I subscribe to all of the RSS feeds and keep up to date through FeedDemon (an awesome desktop RSS reader by the way). All of the sudden on Thursday the feeds changed names (in a minor way) to “Digg Stories / / ..” and now are including associated images, which FeedDemon is displaying as thumbnails.
Personally I can’t stand the thumbnails view, and with a user-generated site like Digg there’s no telling what thumbnails will come up – especially if I’m viewing this in a public place. Is there any way to turn the thumbnails off all-together, or subscribe to a Digg feed that doesn’t include these? I looked on Digg and couldn’t find such a thing, so I’m wondering if there’s a setting in FeedDemon. Browsing through the options I couldn’t find anything obvious, but maybe I’m missing something.
Did anyone else notice this?
