Blogger's Forum - RSS and you
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.

We have pretty pathetic feed access, just a link to the feed blogspot provides. I really don't know much about feeds -- gotta read-up some -- but I know I use our feed on my Google homepage. BF has its own tab for feeds on my Google homepage. :D
I used to use Thunderbird on OpenBSD and OS X, but instead, I just cut back on the number of blogs and sites I look at. Now I use Firefox and bookmarks.
I'm using the RSS feed from my blog to integrate my blog into my website using ASP.NET. Read in the feed (XML) into a dataset and then spit it back out on the screen in which ever layout I setup. Planning on having a couple different pages which utilize what I plan to make into a custom control to display latest news, ride reviews, etc. Working with XML in asp.net is pretty easy, but there is certainly a performance hit over hitting a database local to the page.

What is RSS?
It is a XML file which is produced by blogs, forums (such as BikeForums.net), etc to export it's content in a simple way which can be read by RSS readers, etc.
