I am familiar with alerts and feeds and readers - Google reader is my choice, and my Bloglines account is still in use. I have not used Yahoo in so long and had forgotten that I had set up some Yahoo alerts ages ago. I set up a new alert just for fun, and up popped my Yahoo alerts page with all my previous subscriptions. This included comics such as Calvin and Hobbes, Garfield, Foxtrot and Doonesbury. I have work to do and resist the urge to be sidetracked!

I think that Feed43, FeedBeater, Feed Rinse and Feed Sifter are all excellent and potentially very useful sites. I loved the name RSSPECT and the fact that 'AnySite' is not merely for following any webpage, but also an mp3 file or PDF documents.
