If you have an RSS reader (available in many email readers, as well as web sites), you can “subscribe” to our web site. Subscribing means you receive a notification in your program with the title and first paragraph of our updates to the web site — without having to visit it. Once you see the update, you simple click on it to see the full article.
More information about RSS subscriptions can be found on these web sites:
- Wikipedia article on RSS feed readers
- Wikipedia list of RSS readers (you may already have/use one!). Hint: “Clients” are programs that sit on your computer; “Web based software” are web sites you join and then read all your feeds on that one web page).
- If you use Microsoft Outlook or Outlook Express for your email (the programs, not the web page interface), you can subscribe using it, but you’ll need to install an Ad-In. One that works well and is well documented is RSS Popper. Information and download for it can be found here: http://rsspopper.blogspot.com/2004/10/home.html
- The Thunderbird email program is RSS ready and requires no plug ins. Details for Thunderbird users can be found here: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Thunderbird_:_FAQs_:_RSS_Basics
