really simple saturation

Ok, that's it. I read a whole bunch of RSS feeds through livejournal's friends page (as you can see by my userinfo), but lately something's been going wrong and regurgitating dozens of old posts from RSS feeds (sometimes months or years old) into my friends page. It's as if LJ forgets which posts have already been seen and fetches a new RSS feed and says hey! all these posts are new. Let's clog up your friends page.

I'm going to switch to Google Reader for non-LJ RSS feeds and see how that goes. I like how you can cherry-pick which things to read without really having to read linearly as you do the LJ friends page.
