    [broken link] RSS Feeds AKA Syndication

    Moorock's Miscellany is now available via Really Simple Syndication (RSS). This is a method of article distribution via browsers and other kinds of agents known as news readers or aggregators. We have two news feeds now: Moorcock's Miscellany's Fora Posts at the Q&A and other public fora. Moorock's Miscellany The front page of this site. Three useful things you can do with the two feeds are: 1) You can create a news aggregation of these threads for your website. 2) You can use a news reader like Bloglines or one of these aggregators. 3) You can use Firefox to add a Livebookmark

    To add more...

    AS: The newsfeeds autodetection are not set up on the website yet. :(
    Let's look at HTML sources of
    inside HMTL/HEAD there is RSS advertising:
    HTML Code:
    <link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="RSS" href="" />
    <link rel="alternate" type="application/atom+xml" title="Atom" href="" />
    All more-or-less modern browsers would prompt user if he wants to subscribe to some of the advertised newsfeeds.

    To add more what one can do to newsfeeds.

    3.1) Opera browser will show standard icon for RSS-enabled sites and would present news subscriptions like e-mails.
    3.2) Konqueror/Safari browsers also do have some prompt and reading support.
    3.3) Forecoming Microsoft Internet Explorer v.7 would show standard icon for RSS-enabled sites and allow reading newsfeeds.
    3.4) People, who prefer to continue using 5+ years-old Internet Explorer v 5.x and 6.x, can install Maxthon add-on, that supports RSS-enabled sites in the same way like the browsers mentioned above.

    4) If you are using BLOG services, like or, you can add newsfeed to your friends list and read RSS news among posts of Your friends.

    5) since RSS is a kind of newsfeed - it is made to spread news. So my favorite way is to insert newsfeeds into Instant Messenger (program like ICQ, MSN, AIM). This can be easily done if either
    5.1) program supports it, like famouse Miranda does.
    5.2) server supports it, usually this means Jabber-enabled program like Google Talk

    PS: wish - add standardized site navigation plz. For examples look at HTML/HEAD/Link tags of pages like

    Kind regards to community and webmasters.
