I didn’t really understand what RSS feeds meant, but I signed up to try it out yesterday. I received my first feed this morning & I like it.
I recommend this to everybody.
Thank you

Hey Dick, Im glad you like them. They are an excellent way for staying in the loop and they are spam-free. Was the about feeds page helpful?

And one more Q. Did you subscribe to the email version?

I think I signed in with the email version. I guess I don’t really know the difference.

That’s what I like about computers, Everyday I learn something new.

Hey Martin,
I did some more studying about this, & now I understand this subject better. The about feeds page was helpful.
I’m going to try the feeds both ways for awhile.

Thank you, Dick

I discovered RSS a while back, and it’s an incredible time saver. I have a reader (Sage) installed into my web browser (Firefox) and I can zip through the 100+ sites I like, checking for updates, reading the short descriptions of any topic that looks interesting, and only having to visit the websites themselves if I’m really interested.

Firefox itself is a great improvement over IE, as you can set it to open a new tab instead of new windows each time you click a link.

Just my .02.

Thanks Doc,
I upgraded to Internet explorer 7, & you can set it to open new tabs, you can also set up a list of home page tabs.
Another feature I like is if you want to enlarge a page, or image, you just click a box in the lower righthand corner, & it enlages instantly. It increases 50% each time you click, its nice for fine print or small images.

That’s my 2 1/2 cents worth.
