Since I made my monumental switch to Ubuntu back in October, I’ve also attempted to move my email, feed reading and calendaring off the web as well. I’ve been using Linux info manager Evolution for mail and calendar, which is a nice product. It’s almost Outlook-lite. For my feed reading, I’ve been using Liferea, which is also a simple and easy to use program, but lacks the speed and flexibility of Google Reader.
So, I just haven’t been able to accomplish that goal of going offline since I’m constantly on the road. I miss my GMail interface, I miss the fly-through-feed reading of Google Reader and I certainly missed my 30Boxes.
So, I’ve decided to put everything back up on these platforms and get back to what I’m comfortable with in terms of usage.
