What is RSS, A Guide

Close This Page

What Is RSS? Use the orange RSS/XML buttons (they're everywhere nowadays) to get the latest Web pages from The Handbook, as well as the latest news from CNN, the latest movies, blog posts, etc. 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 need for bookmarks!

"RSS" means "Really Simple Syndication." But that is just a fancy way of saying that you can keep up with all the updates to Scale Modelers Handbook 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. I also make other special posts from time to time. And I re-release favorite "oldies" from time to time... The favorite "oldies" are the extra-special techniques I have discovered in my own modeling over the years.

I share them with you from time to time through RSS. This gives you our "secret/best of The Handbook" without you having to spend hours finding them.

RSS is terrific. No spam. It's so easy to subscribe and unsubscribe. If you get tired of me , you just have to delete the feed.

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

How Do You Get Started?


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

Windows -- RssReader http://www.rssreader.com/

Once you're set up, here's all you have to do... Right-click (control-click for Mac users) on any page of this site). 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.
Don't Want To Download New Software?
Some people prefer to view RSS feeds through their browsers. If that is you, Google, Yahoo! and others have simple one-step solutions.

Just click on one of their buttons that you see in the bottom left corner of every page of the Handbook.

Follow the instructions after that. Easy.
