I feel having no unread items a great accomplishment, especially considering that a number of days ago, there were about 4500 items. Almost 900 of them were unread. That means in about 48 hours, I have read, skimmed, or otherwise parsed almost 4000 different news articles.
Using Gregarius is a lot different than using Sage. Gregarius caches all of the items it retrieves from RSS feeds, while Sage only allowed you to see information currently loaded in a feed. As a result, I can no longer just ignore a feed I do not feel like reading, as its number of unread items will increase.
