RSS again

November 14th, 2006 / Filed Under: computing -web / 2 Comments / Tags: , , , ,

I just realised that the previous post was included in my RSS feed so it looks like it works. The old posts are still there but hopefully they will gradually be replaced by the newest ones as I enter them. So give it a go if you can work out how. Clicking on the orange button in Firebox will give you the option of how to subscribe and IE7 gives some information on what feeds are. The idea is it lets you know when I post a new, err, post.

There seems to be a few ways of subscribing other than using the browsers. Thunderbird (Mozilla’s email client) lets you subscribe and it will arrive in a similar way to an email, which to me sounds like a good option, but now that I use gmail I don’t use Thunderbird any more. Sage seems to be a good plugin for Firefox to keep up to date with RSS.

If you understand any of this and have some better options or can explain it better than me please feel free to reply to this and help out!

    Subscribing using Thunderbird
    OK, I clicked on the RSS icon, and selected “Subscribe Now” and then chose to “Subscribe using Thunderbird” when Neil posts next, I’ll let you know if it works!
