    I could use feedback on the RSS feeds. I know under FireFox everything seams to work ok. Not tested with any other browsers, yet.

    I've limited the feeds to the top 35 topics in the forum chosen, such as Physics, etc. You can have a feed for each forum of interest.

    In any event, let me know if they are working.

    Edit:

    I guess what I have now is more Live Bookmarks then anything. It puts the most recently responded to topic on the top link.

    If you use Firefox you'll notice and orange RSS icon in the address bar when you enter the first topic listing of a forum.

    I have yet to work with it on IE or any of the other RSS readers. IE by default has no support for RSS. IE 7 might.

    I'll add more in time.

    Try it, you may just like them.

    They give you a drop down of the last 35 topics in the forum you bookmakred.

    So in physics you can see what posts are up top while your surfing some other web site. If you see a topic you like you just click on it...and presto, your at that page.

    Just try it, easy enough to remove.

    Ahhhh... I have been enlightened. That is very cool. May I suggest having it say whether or not there are new posts (or maybe you already did that and I already looked at them all ).

    I'll add more to it at a later date. Right now it shows the most recently posted to topic on top. So generally the newer stuff is up top. Unless of course someone revives a dead thread.

    Hi insanity - can you send the first few lines of the post as well in the RSS?
    As is often the case with technical subjects we are presented with an unfortunate choice: an explanation that is accurate but incomprehensible, or comprehensible but wrong.
