Malfunctioning Technology, serendipity, and nostalgia

My bloglines feedreader has started playing truant. Yet again. It suddenly threw up the last 200 posts from almost every blog on the list, then it has now done something crazier, bringing up 200 posts from 2004 and 2005.

Now that is something. Errant technology arbitrarily showing glimpses from the past, bringing back memories.

The tsunami blog was abuzz with activity, BBC news spoke of fans being in the wrong queues for the latest Star Wars film. The BBC's now closed Discovering Music podcast briefly was on again. Complete irony happened when bloglines also threw up a Boing Boing post from Nov 2004 about badly behaved RSS readers.

I was completely moved when it showed that Lalita Mukherjea's blog had new unread posts for me. Best of all was that the old Maanga came back alive, including a post from Sep 13 2006, which TON had personally addressed to me. I know you are reading this. I love you TON, and miss your writing!
