As everyone knows now Google Reader will be shutting down on July 1st. This has caused me to actually start working on my long planned switch to a self-hosted solution. Looking at what I actually use Google Reader for it looks like I really need multiple readers. I've already switched my audio podcast consumption to a dedicated podcatcher program on my mobile phone. Unfortunately getting enough content for my walks home will exceed my the "fair use" limits on my "unlimited" plan so I'll have to download it in advance via wi-fi.

For webcomics news and people I follow regularly a River of News style aggregator like planet looks to be what I need.

However there are still some feeds for which I would prefer the mailbox style of news provided by reader. Unfortunately most of the options here seem to be either designed for massive hosting sites or written in PHP. While I'm sure it is possible to write secure PHP it doesn't seem to be the norm.

I'm also looking for something that can split link posts into multiple entries and ideally merge multiple links to the same article.
