GeneralFull-year backlog... Pin

I did it.

I'm subscribed to a number of RSS feeds. Very often I simply don't have the time to go through everything that gets posted in a single day. So I delete what is clearly of no interest, but keep the items that have a subject line that's at least interesting enough that I figure I'll want to read later. Then the backlog grows.

And right now, the oldest item in my feed is from October 5th 2021.

Of course I have links to technical articles from other feeds that go way farther than that, which I don't mind...but this particular one is for the BBC's general news feed, so dozens of items get added to it daily, and unlike technical articles, most of the stuff is somewhat time-sensitive, in the sense that the older the article gets, the less likely it is I'm going to find it relevant by the time I decide to read it. Yet I can't help myself but keep these around and accumulate. I'm a bit of a news junkie in that way.

Then every once in a while, I'll take a couple of hours on a Sunday afternoon and read through stuff and find out the article count has dropped by something like 3%.

Please send help.
