WEB SERVICE: The MAA gets an RSS feed

Post by Digital » Sat Feb 04, 2006 3:47 pm

Well the maa is starting to get more and more into the latest technology. We now have our very own RSS feed. You can find it at the bottom of the page.

The MAA RSS feed my be short lived. There are currently some kinks that need to be removed. I hope to have it back up shortly.

Ah, my answer to the question and for anybody who cant get the RSS going in firefox.

Firefox:

Select the orange "live feed" icon. Store the saved bookmark, and view it through your menu bar.


Safari

Image

Just click on the RSS, and drag it to your menu bar.

Internet Explorer

I cant remember if RSS is native or not, but you can always pick up a reader like: http://www.codeproject.com/jscript/TinyRSS.asp

Can this be used with the google customizable homepage?

http://www.google.com/ig

This is a great tool for those with gmail accounts.
This is what i was talking about with you and wolf yesterday, dig.

Go set up your own homepage, and then click "Add content". there is a search box, and thats how I found the Arnie's new feed... but I can't seem to get it to recognize the maa one.

Let me know if you figure it out,

and I highly suggest trying out google.com/ig. Its the perfect homepage, completely drag and drop easy.
