    I've been using Google Reader to view the site for over a year now, as I like the way it aggregates threads from each board, so I can read pretty much the entire site quickly in one place. Also, I can view an abbreviated form of the feed on my cell phone's outdated browser, so it's convenient when I'm bored on a train.

    Lately, though, it's not grabbing all the new threads on a regular basis. Like in the last two days it only updated 2-3x with a handful of posts. I've manually looked at the boards, and it's clear that Reader's missing a lot.

    Has anyone else had this problem lately? Is it Reader's failing, or something related to the way content is uploaded on TFW?

    How do the rest of you read the boards? I used to use Flock and loved it's built-in RSS utilities, but the browser was a bit slow, and crammed with too many features I never used.
