It's not just a clever name for a webcomic... okay, it is.

RSS feeds rock

Postby cmdrrickhunter on Wed May 31, 2006 10:48 pm

I'm just trotting by the forums, so i dont know if the writers of Striptease read them, but if they do...

THANK YOU FOR RSS FEEDS

Your comic updates sporatically. While this is understandable (gotta make a living and enjoy the life first), many of my comics frustrate me by forcing me to check them manually. Your RSS feed is perfect!

(this is being said by a RSS novice. Hopefully its as magic as it appears to be at first sight)

I could never thought somebody would be that happy to have something pronounced 'arse' feeded to him on a regular basis.

Sorry. That's what my mind works... :oops:

Anyway, I had no idea Chris had that service. It's useful to know. Thanks. 8)

I'm no wizard, but:

On the right side, below the comic, see the orange "XML" button? Click on it and you'll see a bunch of structured text that boils down to a list of recent strips (archive pages) and some administrivia. This is automatically (or manually) updated whenever a new strip goes up.

To make use of this little file you need to run an RSS client on your computer. You tell this client you want to "subscribe" to the Striptease RSS feed (how you do this varies from client to client) and perhaps how often you want it to check for new content. When there *is* new content the client either tells you or just goes ahead and fetches the new stuff.

If you happen to run Firefox I can highly recommend the InfoRSS extension; otherwise you'll have to go elsewhere for RSS client suggestions.

HTH.

If the RSS feed you want is, in fact, an XML file, I find WinAmp can play/run them!

Any other RSS formats might be a problem for WinAmp.
