If you want to keep up to date with changes to the website, it's easy. With RSS, updates are sent straight to your desktop every time we add something to the site - and you can even choose which kinds of information you would like to be updated on.
RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is way you can keep up-to-date with the latest headlines, stories and information from your favourite sites very easily. Instead of having to go to each site to check for updates, RSS allows you to keep tabs on them from one central place - this can be either your internet browser like Firefox, Flock or Safari, or a special newsreader you can install on your computer.
Whichever one you prefer to use, every so often it will check the web feeds of websites you subscribe to and let you know if there's been any updates since it last checked. You'll be able to see at a glance what's new and you won't lose touch with websites you visit less frequently.
How do I get a newsreader?
Very easily, and there are many different versions available. Many of the big online companies have their own reader service, including Google and Yahoo! If you already have any account with them, then you'll be able to use their reader; if not, then it's very easy to sign up.
Some readers, such as Feedreader, are applications that you download to your computer, but many are web-based so you can access them on anywhere - these include Bloglines and Netvibes.
So how do I get SIANI headlines delivered to my reader?
Look at the list of available feeds at the top of this page and decide which feed you would like to receive. Hover your cursor over the relevant link, right click and select 'Copy link location' or 'Copy shortcut'. Then go to your newsreader or browser, create a new subscription and paste in the link. Each reader is different so, if you can't quite figure out how to add your first subscription, check your application's help section.
