This might take a while…
I had a problem with the new and very nice favicon support in NetNewsWire Lite 1.0.7b1, and ended up exporting my subscriptions, throwing my prefs and the files in ~/Library/Application Support/NetNewsWire, which lead to all my feeds being completely unread (but the missing favicon did show up).
According to the release notes, the bug was squashed in 1.0.7fc1.
Thanks a lot to Brent Simmons for making this excellent RSS reader, and for making a free version available.
The addition of favicons in NNW is also why I finally got off my duff and created a favicon for this site. It certainly won’t go in the favicon hall of fame, but at least it’s something. It’s been a long time since I tried to create anything graphically pleasing in 16 pixels by 16 pixels. Urgh. Massive respect to icon designers–that’s one tough gig.
