Woohoo! TopFive has an RSS feed!

(99% of this page is courtesy of ThisIsTrue and Randy Cassingham.)

By using a special reader, you can get regular information -- including news and newsletter subscriptions -- from multiple web sites, all in one place. No more running from site to site to see if there are updates you are interested in. TopFive now announces our daily topics via RSS feed.

RSS feeds are coded in "XML" (eXtensible Markup Language) and are thus not readable by ordinary web browsers or e-mail programs; you "subscribe" via a special reader called an aggregator. Some aggregators are "plug-ins" for web browsers or e-mail programs like Outlook, and allow you to subscribe to the feeds that interest you without having to give any information to the publisher (such as your e-mail address). The method of how you subscribe depends on what aggregator you have, but it's as simple as clicking (or right-clicking) on the orange "RSS" or "XML" box you see on a web site.

Why are we offering such a feed? One word: spam. Slimy subhumans are making e-mail a hostile environment.

Here are some places to get you started on RSS (links will open in new windows). The aggregators shown here are reported to properly render TopFive's feed. (If you know of a reader which renders the feed correctly and is not shown here, please let us know.

  • If you use MS Outlook (not Outlook Express) an excellent integrated reader is NewsGator.
  • BottomFeeder has versions for Windows, MacOS and various flavors of Unix.
  • A stand-alone progrom for Macintosh (OS-X): NetNewsWire
  • Another interesting web-based aggregator is Bloglines.
  • Bradbury Software's FeedDemon is a very good aggregator.
  • AmphetaDesk has versions for Mac OS 7-9, Mac OS X, Win95, Win98 and higher, and Linux.
  • SharpReader works within the .NET framework.

Lastly, you can find some very good basic reading on RSS (and RSS feeds out the wazoo!) on Lockergnome's RSS Quickstart Guide.
