The acronym RSS has multiple definitions, but one of the most common translations is Real Simple Syndication. It allows users to view frequently published content, such as blogs (i.e. my trip logs) in their web browser. The site creates a file which describes the content and when it was created.

This is great if you follow multiple blogs from multiple sources and you don't want to have you mailbox overrun with e-mail containing the content. And the very nice thing is that your current web browser already has an RSS viewer built into it!

To view new content, follow one of these instructions based upon your browser:

I think that you'll find this a very nice way to view the content and catch up on any logs that you may have missed.
