RSS News Feeds


You may have seen the xml icon on internet sites. What is it?


It points to an RSS feed. RSS or Real Simple Syndication is a way for sharing information, like news, on the internet.


To view the information in an RSS feed you need a news aggregator program. The aggregator will automatically check the feed periodically and alert you when new articles are available. No more hitting refresh to see new content on your favourite news sites!


Our forums now have RSS 2.0 feeds you can use with your news aggregator.
