    Nope, didn't know.

    Googled to find this but I really don't like the look of that.

    Do you just basically get the latest news emailed to you?

    It lets you see the latest news in a list on your browser. As you can see, I have BBC News, Sky news and Sky sports.

    I use RSS ALL the time!!.. Have subcriptions to:

    • BBC News
    • BBC Technology
    • A Blog
    • My Webhosts News
    • My Webhosts Current Status/Problems etc.

    It's great, I just use Thunderbird as my RSS Aggregator as it means I don't need any extra software running etc.

    ;)

    On any website look for a little orange symbol in the URL box on the right hand side. Click that :)

    i've signed up for millions - once i figure out which are the ones that have the best feeds (for me) i'll thin it out a bit...i always like having stuff to read though :)

    I didn't know A List Apart had an RSS feed, I must add it. I really should spend more time reading websites instead of looking at the pretty shapes on them.
