I guess my post a couple weeks ago about starving children in the world did the trick!


All kidding aside, thanks!

Any recomendations for an RSS reader that supports authentication?

AND, correct me if I’m wrong, but borrowing from the ASAP discussion of late, you now put the REMINDER text in the email subject line in caps.

Reminder text format shouldn’t have changed.

Unfortunately, my newsreader (FeedDemon, which is very popular among Windows users) now forces me to validate my basecamp RSS feed every time I open the newsreader …not just once but every time. I don’t see a way to turn that off in FeedDemon; any ideas?

Just a quick note as I suspect designers are reading this.

On BasecampHQ.com, I can not find a link to where I can log into an existing account. Not on the front page, not on the signup page either. It was dumb luck that allowed me to remember the updatelog.com url. And www.updatelog.com doesn’t seem to work either.

Is there a reason that there isn’t a login link on the front of the basecamphq.com page?

NetNewsWire just picked it up and ran with it - this is great! Thanks, folks!

Is there a reason that there isn�t a login link on the front of the basecamphq.com page?

Yes. Usernames and passwords are only unique to each account, they aren’t globally unique. This means that multiple people could have “bob” as their username and “bob1” as their password across *all* Basecamp accounts. What makes the login unique is the subdomain that is unique to your own Basecamp site.
