Tangible Thoughts SharePoint, MOSS? and all the other questions

I was getting p*ssed with the bugs (i.e. its intermittent crashes etc.) in the current beta version of Sauce Reader (i.e. v.2.0.1) so I thought I might as well check if there had been an update on the site.

What surprised me was the greeting message on their site.

"Synop has closed for business.

We're very proud of all we've accomplished both internally and by working closely with our customers and users. We appreciate all your interest and support.

The Sauce Reader product and source code are for sale. "

A very sad end to what was otherwise a very neat RSS Reader (i.e. bugs aside). It was/is the only free Rss Reader that I know of that can group Rss Items by date in the Outlook 2003 style (i.e. Today, Yesterday etc). Its aggregated news reading pane also was innovative in the fact that alongside each feed item in the aggregated news display were buttons to Mark it as read, email the item etc.

RIP Sauce, I hope some one brings you back to life in the future.
