This actually slipped out awhile ago but i forgot to mention it.

The site has an RSS feed for news. Gasp!

You can use software such as Feedreader (http://www.feedreader.com) to view this on your desktop (you can view loads of other sites too - well handy). It will even tell you when theirs a new headline - i.e. a new story.. You can get rss news readers for other os's to. I know the mac has a nice one for example.

The relavent URL is http://www.allabouter6.com/external/rss.php

If this proves popular I can add feeds for the forums too.

One thing - please use cahche - i.e. don't be checking for updates every 5 seconds - I'd like some bandwith left :)

The reason I mention this now is that My-Symbian.info also has a feed for its news. See http://my-symbian.info/main/b2rss.xml

BTW you use these feeds in feedreader when adding a new feed.

You can also use these files to include headlines on your site.

I've been talking to Michal (webmaster of my-symbian.info about this) and hopefully by tomorrow (or next few days) you'll see my-symbian.info headlines on the front page of allabouter6.com and vice versa. Isn't co-operation wonderful?

No feedreader for the 9210 yet? I smell something for my Todo list ;)
Nice one Rafe ;)
Now I don't have to visit my-symbian anymore ;))

Didn't Chris with the Forth Newsreader say he was working on an RSS reader for the 9210?
