newsgator crushing under the load?

i've been trying the new beta of netnewswire 2.1. after all the dabbling with many news readers (i've bought both netnewswire and newsfire previously) i still think netnewswire suits my needs the most.

the main cool things with this release is the speed and the newsgator syncing. but i still haven't been able to get that work properly. somewhere along the line, the syncing misses more than half my feeds, mostly bloglines and flickr ones. i can understand the bloglines one, because who wants one web aggregator to aggregate feeds from another web aggregator.

however, i believe the real problem is that newsgator hasn't been working well all weekend. it would stall, give me .NET errors and continually log me out even though i told it to remember me. maybe i'll wait a bit before i try it again.

You can reply to me about this on Twitter:
