RSSReader

For those of you who use RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feed readers to gather your news. Here is my list of geeky RSS feeds. This is what I read. It is an XML Page that you can download and upload to your favorite RSS program. There are 46 feeds here. More tech info than you could read even if you were trapped on a deserted island...(one with wi-fi I guess).

If you don't have any RSS Program, here is a program that I use. RSSReader. It is a simple program that is pretty useful. If you want to give it a try, download it and install it. Then come back to this post and right-click on my list of geeky RSS feeds above and save the file to your desktop. Open RSSReader and click File; then click Import feeds" and then find the XML file you saved to your desktop and double-click it. And then, voila, you have more tech news streaming to you computer than you will know what to do with.

I like it because it goes to the websites I like and gets the articles for me so that I don't have to surf around everytime I want to sit down with my laptop and read. I like it.

By the way, RSSReader and other RSS Programs can notify you when I post a new blog entry using this address.

Nevermind...I got the error when I downloaded the .zip file. When I downloaded the .exe, it worked fine.

Thanks for introducting me to a new addiction. Just what I freaking need...another thing to get addicted to.
