Adobe Feeds Data Problem

I just wanted to let everyone know that we had a little problem the other day with Adobe Feeds and ended up losing some data. Most of the post data has been recovered, but we lost some site submissions. If you submitted your blog after 2/12/09, it’s likely that it was lost and you will need to resubmit it. Sorry for the goof up.

On a related note, how many of you out there are still using Adobe Feeds? I talked to a few people recently who just use the RSS that Adobe Feeds generates rather than using the site itself. How are people getting their Adobe developer news these days, and/or technology news in general?

  1. I too use the RSS feed instead of visiting the site.

  2. I still go to Love it, and I thank you and mike for creating it.

    Personally I just use the RSS through Google (on iGoogle). The Feeds site is way too slow to be considered useful (for me at least).Just goes to show that maybe this RSS stuff needs another solution that’s more performant and reliable

    Nooooo :(I was wondering why my submission for got delayed so much.Thanks for clarification.To answer your question, 95% of the time I use the RSS feed via Firefox Live Bookmarks.I do use the site from time to time to get a sense of popular posts and generally do research.Anyway, Adobe Feeds in itself is an incredible resource that really help bringing the community together.

    I use for all of my news (I have ~35 feeds I’m subscribed to – including yours!).

    I know this thread is pretty old but maybe you know what’s up with ?

    Thank you

  7. I’ve been a huge fan myself of the feeds for quite some time and oddly enough the feeds acting up now is weird timing as I’m making a mobile app utilizing the MXNA 2.0 webservice so hopefully the issues are resolved soon. Wonderful effort on you and Mesh’s part as always!
