    I've blogged a few times (um, <a href="http://www.andrewconnell.com/blog/App-Idea-Developers-Assistant" target="_blank">here</a>, <a href="http://www.andrewconnell.com/blog/Developers-Assistant-research" target="_blank">here</a>, um... oh and <a href="http://www.andrewconnell.com/blog/NNTPRSSATOM-reader-research" target="_blank">here</a>) about the need for a RSS & NNTP consolodated app.
    </p>
    <p>
    <a href="http://www.rssbandit.org/ow.asp?RssBandit" target="_blank">RSSBandit</a> started as an open source RSS reader.  It now supports synchronization between PCs... a BIG minus I have on NewsGator (that I already paid $20 for and they want more to have sync).  Not only that, but the RSSBandit team released a <a href="http://www.rssbandit.org/ow.asp?RoadMap" target="_blank">roadmap</a> recently on their future plans.
    </p>
    <p>
    The new version, currently codenamed <b>Wolverine</b>, is slated for first beta release in late summer 2004.  They have numerous new features they plan to put in... I encourage you to check it out (link below).  Here are my favorite soon to be features:
    <ul>
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<li><b>NNTP Support:</b> Finally I can read RSS and NNTP in one app.</li>
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<li><b>Advanced synchronization</b>: A big strike I have on NewsGator.</li>
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<li><b>Closer Integration with IE</b>: I hate that I have to go into one of my blog entries just to get to the actual blogger's site.</li>
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<li><b>WYSIWYG Blog Editor:</b> Sure would be cool if this makes it in so I could do ALL RSS and NTTP from one application.</li>
    </ul>
