What is RSS?

Have you been seeing orange RSS or XML buttons more and more, and not knowing what they are?


It's "the next big thing" -- you can use it to get newsfeeds from CNN or BBC, as well as just about anything else, including news on upcoming movies, DVD releases, your favorite band's tour updates, etc.

Once you get started, it's like having your favorite parts of the Web come to you. No need to go out and check for updates all the time.

No more bookmarks for me!

"RSS" means "Really Simple Syndication." But that is just a fancy way of saying that you can keep up with all the updates to rules-of-poker.net without having to check the site every week to see "what's new." Whenever I put up a new page or update an old one , I release it through RSS. And...

This gives you my "Instant Rules Of Poker" without you having to spend hours on the site.

Yes, RSS is amazing. If you can't tell, I'm completely addicted to it. No e-mail. No spam. It's so easy to subscribe and unsubscribe. If you get tired of me , you just have to delete the feed. It's awesome!

And once you start, you'll soon be tracking all your other favorite interests and news in the world.

How do you get started? Easy (now that I know, that is! ha! ha!).

Download free RSS Reader first (skip to the bottom if you do not want to download software). This is special software (freeware) that reads the "RSS feeds" from the largest news organizations right down to little old me...

Windows -- RssReader

Mac -- NetNewsWire

Once you're set up, here's all you have to do...

Right-click (control-click for Mac users) on any orange RSS button on a site, blog or news source that interests you. Start by right-clicking on the orange button below. Then...

Select Copy Shortcut ("Copy Link to Clipboard" for Mac), and paste that URL into your RSS Reader.

And that's it! You're subscribed.

Right Click & Subscribe to my RSS feed

Don't want to download new software?

Yahoo! has a fantastic, one-step solution. They've made it a snap for us to subscribe to RSS feeds via My Yahoo!. Just click on the link below...

Add rules-of-poker.net rss to My Yahoo!


MY MSN visitors could also subscribe to my RSS feed at my.msn.com should they so prefer. Right now, MSN does not provide the slick and easy "subscribe button" like My Yahoo!. So you will have to:

Select Copy Shortcut ("Copy Link to Clipboard" for Mac), and paste that URL into the add content box. You can subscribe to MY MSN here
