Syndicated RSS Feeds

What is RSS? Well, RSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication" and is a format by which people may subscribe to a website, in much the same way that people signup for newletters via email. So in a way, you can think of it as a newsletter for a website.

Look for the RSS icon ( RSS 2.0/Syndication ) on various pages on, which will be linked to the relevant syndication feed for that page or section of the website. If you have questions regarding this, please feel free to contact us.

How do I subscribe?

If you're not familiar with syndication feeds (RSS), relax and enjoy the ride! First, you will need to download a newsreader application. Here are a few popular ones:

  • FeedDemon (Win/XP) — This is a standalone newsreader for Windows, and it's very flexible and full of some great features such as the "News Bins", which allow you to search and order news/information by keywords. It's styled against Office 2003, so if you are running Windows XP and Office 2003 it will seem very familiar and friendly... which it is!
