Postby bilyth » Thu Oct 18, 2007 4:09 pm

i'm using greatnews on my home computer & it's working really well. i'm just wondering if there's a way/program that i can use to view all my feeds from greatnews online when i'm not at home. is there a way...to sync it or something too?

thanks.. new to this. so any help appreciated.

Not that I am aware of ........ but you can always move GN to a flash drive and run it from there? (won't matter where you are then)

how do you do that? export the opml file to a flash drive? so do you carry the greatnews software with you & install it on another computer then import the opml file?

From fresh;

1. Download Great News
2. Extract ZIP to flash drive
3. Load Great News

If you used the installer to install it on your PC, then do the above, then just copy the Great News folder from your computer (i.e. C:\Program Files\Great News\), onto the flash drive.

Once on the flash drive, you don't need to install it on the computer as it can be loaded directly from the flash drive.

thanks. so if it's running off the flash drive- when i'm ready to move again, has it saved all the info (read feeds etc..) automatically on the flahs drive? or do i have to go somewhere on the computer (2nd computer ..not home computer) & copy files again to the flash drive?

All data will be stored on the flash drive.

ok, thansk for the info.

how about this scenario: if i want to transfer my news feeds from my flash drive (well i'm actually using an external HD) to a computer that already has GN installed...which file(s) do i need to transfer so i can run GN off my computer (it runs too slowly off the external HD).

i know i could probably just transfer the whole GN folder again; but to save time & for simplicity..can i just transfer the newsfeed "data base file" or are there others to transfer to make it run properly.

thanks!

Just the .db file should be fine.
