What the world needs now is...

Personalized RSS feeds that would allow you to monitor whether the school is closed. The only trick, I guess, is that services like
Bloglines
are not completely instantanious, so I guess you'd still have to listen to the radio. Darn!

Once again this old foggie needs some schooling. Man I used to think I was reasonably competent with computers and what they could do and what was out there, but in the past year I feel like I have lost complete touch! How are RSS feeds different from the notion of logging onto a website to get information? My local newspaper, for example, has an option now where you can get certain columnist's columns via RSS. But I read them on the web anyhow when I go through the newspapers. HOw would an RSS feed enhance my computer experience? Inquiring minds want to know!

Re: From the Resident Curmudgeon
Where RSS is helpful is when you don't want to visit a bunch of sites or blogs. It's like a friends page if you use Bloglines. This way, I can get info from various papers and blogs and sites. I'm keeping up with sites on a lot of topics relatively simply using RSS. It's especially great in my area because I can monitor both large papers, plus one paper that's local to my home town. I also monitor chronic pain news and other stuff for school and such. It's pretty nice. Does that help any?
