Okay, I’ll admit it. I’m an RSS junky.

I have RSS feeds for damn near everything I’m interested in. Some of them, though admittedly not all of them–yet, anyway–are on Twitter, which makes keeping up on most of my interests just that much easier. I’d probably have an RSS feed for all my RSS feeds if I thought it’d be practical to do so. In fact, some of the links posted here came from those very feeds.

What I don’t have, though–again, not yet–is a way to access those same RSS feeds from damn near anywhere. Right now, all my feeds are being downloaded on my computer at home, where they’ll stay until I get back there at December’s end.

Don’t get me wrong, I like the setup, it just doesn’t quite do the job when I’m somewhere where I can’t easily get back a few hours later to see them. For example, when I’m in Rochester, where my computer’s several hundred kilometers away. I’ve tried a few of the more centralized services–Bloglines, Google Reader to name a few–but they all seem to overcomplicate something that doesn’t need to be.

I don’t need favourite entries. I don’t need 5 or 6 “share this” links. I don’t need synchronization with my phone, Outlook, and whatever else it’ll let you connect to it. I can find that locally, in the form of TwInbox from TechHit. Now, let’s see if I can find it remotely. TechHit, I can see an opportunity in your future if you’re up for it.
