Whichever you choose, download it to an area such as C:\downloads\news\rss on your local hard drive. Then open Windows Explorer and run it and install it by double clicking the program. Most readers come with some pre-installed news feeds, but you may want to find others at such sites as http://backend.userland.com/2003/06/24 and http://slashdot.org/slashdot.rss Once you have a reader running select New and paste into the URL box the RSS page of your choice (e.g. you can copy and paste the Hintlink address http://hintlink.com/hintlink_rss.xml ) into this box. As new news arrives from each source, you’ll get a little pop-up box in the bottom right hand side of your screen. In Firefox, the browser will ask you if you want to use it as a Live Bookmark. Don't choose this. Copy and paste the address into your RSS feedreader (most Readers will even auto-paste this into a "New Feed" option).

NOTE: Hintlink has about a dozen RSS feeds. The above one is our company announcement page. Others are in our Calendar page area.

FOR WEBMASTERS and news providers - making your RSS Newsfeed to feed to your users:

Recommended: ListGarden . Runs as an exe file, which then opens in your browser. Fast, efficient, works, free. Limited in output options, though (no image file, for example).

Also: RSSBuilder.  Appears to work well.

For our own feeds, we use a custom auto-generation method (written in-house) which comes from an Access database.
