RSS Feed

What are RSS Feeds?
RSS feeds allow you to see when websites have added new content. You can get the latest headlines and stories in one place, as soon as they are published, without having to visit the websites you have taken the feed from.

How do I start receiving an RSS feed?
In general, the first thing you need is something called a feed reader or 'news aggregator'. This is a handy piece of software that will check the S.O.S. blog, for instance, and let you read any new articles that have been added.

There are many different versions of RSS feed readers, some of which are accessed using your browser, and some of which are downloadable applications. On PC's, IE 7.0 has a good feed reader built in, and so does Safari on the Mac. Otherwise download
Feedreader for the PC or NetNewsWire Lite for the Mac - both are free.

Receiving the S.O.S. Blog feed
To automatically receive the S.O.S. Blog, click on the orange "S.O.S. Blog" button again, and then click on the "RSS Feed" link - this will automatically sign you up to receive our regular updates.
