What is this RSS thing?

Do you want to be informed everytime I post a new article to this blog?

If so, RSS is the ideal way to do it. You don't even need to give me your e-mail address!

All you need is an RSS reader. The one I use and recommend is Bloglines. Simply register as a new user, and add the RSS feed URL ( to it.

Then you can log in to Bloglines everyday, just like you might check your email everday. If I have posted anything new to The Tool Rest, you can read it right there in Bloglines.

And the beauty of it is that you can keep track of any blog, news site or mailing list that has an RSS feed. Its a great way to keep track of all manner of things. Give it a try today.

If you want a more in depth look at RSS, a good starting point is Beginners Guide to RSS, XML & webfeeds.
