I've seen other UBB sites that offer RSS feeds. Any reason why this BBS doesn't? Can they be enabled?

I'd be ok with that change, but I'm sure it would require a board update.

After a small amount of research, the RSS features are mods/additions to UBB. I tracked them down to here.

well, one reason is you could run a RSS news feed on your local desktop, and see when new posts have been made.

I personaly have a RSS collector on my website that i use to browse several interesting RSS feeds at a glance. http://isorg.com/?page_id=64

I use Attensa to aggregate RSS feeds from several forums/websites to Outlook. Yeah, more mail! It saves a bunch of time so I don't have to trawl them all several times daily. Anyone here guilty of that?

DOH! Guess different strokes for different folks. Have you heard of mailbox limits? Yeah I suppose I could feed them off to a PST but I'm just as bad as users at cleaning up / deleting old mail.

Using RSS alone or trawling doesn't leave anything but cache on my computer and a quick click of an icon and that's all gone too.

RSS maybe, into my mail - no thanks. But hey - if it works for you that's cool too.

In general though I don't visit as many tech forums as maybe some of you do so I like to trawl Korg myself. I've used a few RSS readers and soon find out I have TOO much to read and so I don't read a lot of it because the RSS takes time to read too.
 
Good idea overall but Information Overload kicks in.

I save to a PST and Attensa cleans up at defined intervals. The default is to delete read posts after 3 days and unread at 15 days so everything is tidy.

The problem I face is that I miss a lot from korg and other forums b/c I only frequently check two or three of the sub forums. One place to quickly scan the subjects of all forums is ultra convenient and beneficial for me.

I think he meant he might give an RSS reader a try and see how it works for him in general.
