Subscribing to Wingssail via RSS

This posting has instructions for subscribing to the wingssail newsletter using RSS/Atom, which is a syndication method (a way of publishing).

Frankly, I don't see the advantage of this sype of subscription over just simply adding wingssail to your favorites and checking the web site when you are online, but if you want to do it this way, here are the instructions, as far as I can figure them out.

(PS, This is an experiment, if I decide I don't like it, I am going to drop it, so let me know if you are using it and think it should be retained)

Setting up to read our newsletters as a RSS/Atom News Feed

(You can also click here Subscribe to wingssail)

1. Download a reader program, this is like a browser. I used FeedReader, which is a simple, small, completely free newsreader.

Go to http://www.feedreader.com/

click "Download latest version"

Select a version, you can click on "Download FeedreaderxxxxxxxSetup.exe" (the first one on the list, or any one you choose)

Run, or save on your computer (and run later) and follow Setup Wizard steps

2. Set up your reader program to show wingssail

-Start feedreeder

-Create a new feed, (click on the "new feed" icon on the top left of the page)

-Put http://feeds.feedburner.com/ blogspot/wingssail in the "Add New Feed" window that comes up, (location of feed)

Type wingssail where it asks for the name, and pick a folder, or leave the blank folder highlighted.

Now you can run your FeedReader program and see the list of our web log postings, and see which ones you have read, etc.

Hope this helps

Fred
