RSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication,” and is a great alternate format for receiving information. With an RSS feed, you subscribe to the feed using the reader or aggregator of your choice.

A feed might contain a list of story headlines, a list of excerpts from the stories, or all the files posted in a topic. All feeds will have a link back to the site, so if you see a headline, post, or file you like, you can click on the link for that piece of content, and will be taken to the site to view it, requiring you to log in.
