Google Reader got a fresh update today and the experience is nearly as good as my favorite offline reader, RssBandit. It even works on my slow dial-up line from home. Bloglines and Newsgator on the other hand choked and fell flat on the floor!
By the way, I'm blogging this from Word 2007 and it feels super good, what the spell and grammar checking and the natural feel to writing documents. I love it.
Configuring it was pretty straight-forward. If you're using dasBlog just make sure that the url is set to http://<site url>/blogger.aspx.
