Tatu.us launches the first RSS channel to supply you with the news on Tatu! Now you do not need to check the site to see if there is Tatu news, you can do it through the comfort of your news agregator.

If you're not familiar with RSS and news aggregators, you're best bet is the Google news reader (http://www.google.com/reader/view , use your gmail account to log in). If you add the tatu.us RSS channel, it looks like this:


All news items are lined up per channel, latest first. You can see directly that there has been an update, you can also select to have only channels with new items listed. Each time you come across a sign on a site (usually news sites) you can add these to the reader. So here for example there are news items from CNN, tatu.us and videolan (VLC video viewer, to check for updates).

Don't hestitate to ask if you still don't understand how to use RSS!

The feed is located at: http://www.tatu.us/news/tatunews.xml

yes. it's an XML file. You either get a news aggrator (a seperate program like a browser), but I really suggest using the Google reader which you use through your browser, or alternatively, the Yahoo reader which works just the same. The Google reader is at http://www.google.com/reader/view and you log in using your gmail account.

:)
