useful trick and odd behaviour

As you may have noticed, the Syndication page provides you with a list of your subscriptions, along with a list of the 20 most popular feeds.

When you add as many feeds as you can from the list available, more feeds are then viewable. But this behaviour is not consistant.

When you add 3 less popular feeds (at the bottom of the list), the list does not expand to 20 again, it will simply stay at 17. However, if you add 3 popular feeds (at the top of the list) the list will expand to a full 20 again.

Due to the limit on subscription "costs", there's only so far I can look "down" the list before I run out of RSS credits.

But, as a result of this experiment, I have now added:

lonecat a blog
fishbowl_all a blog
theonering_net TheOneRing.net forged by and for fans of JRR Tolkien
morons Morons.org
rands_in_repose the digital opinion unit of Jerkcity Enterprises
joelonsoftware painless software management by Joel Spolsky
openbsd_journal Open BSD Journal
mrsnotnesbitt Arwen.org The website caught with its panties down

The lowest readership I've been able to get to display is a readership of 4.
