What is the best program for downloading RSS feeds and putting them on my Pocket PC? Has anybody used nimiq? (http://www.nimiq.nl/) Is there one for the PPC that will download directly via Wyfi?

Here is a list of another couple options for you:

Egress looks like an interesting option that would work over WiFi and supports podcasts:

I may try that one instead of using something like iPodder.

FeederReader is an RSS reader, podcatcher, and videocatcher. It handles enclosures very well, including all media types as well as multiple enclosures. It includes an Enclosure Toolbar for downloading, playing, and deleting podcasts. One feature I'm really pround of is "one tap file management". You can see how it works (including screen shots)
by visiting www.FeederReader.com, specifically http://www.feederreader.com/MediaWalkthrough.html,

I've just added Custom Export where you can define what programs to send the current message to, and Custom Toolbars where you can make your own toolbar using any function within FeederReader.

FeederReader works over WiFi, cellular phone, and ActiveSync passthrough. After you test it out, or if you need any help, visit the FeederReader message board and let me know what you think!

If you want to test your aggregator, see if it handles this videocast:

There's lots more help and information at the website, and I'm available on the message board to help out if you have any problems or questions.
