RSS comes to Kasterborous.com!
Over the coming weeks we’re making several important changes to Kasterborous.com – and the first is upon us today! We’re pleased to announce the Kasterborous Doctor Who News RSS feed; an easy way to keep yourself up-to-date with all of the news and articles published on Kasterborous.
But what is RSS? It stands for Really Simple Syndication, and the information can be read through a News Reader – alternatively if you browse with Mozilla Firefox there are several add-ons to display the feeds for you in HTML (although the point of having an RSS feed is to save you browsing!).
To give you an idea of the popularity and growing importance of RSS, take a look at the BBC News site, or the online pages of The Guardian; both have small icons labelled “RSS” or “XML”, similar to the one found on the Kasterborous homepage.
A good, free newsreader is Omea Reader from Jetbrains. This can also be used to view USENET newsgroups, and can be downloaded from www.jetbrains.com.
And if you’re an old hand at RSS Feeds, the URL for the feed is:
http://www.kasterborous.com/rss/drwhonews.xml – so get that pasted into your newsreader and get subscribed!
