What Is RSS?
I've been seeing orange RSS or
XML buttons more and more, what are they and what do
It's "the next big thing" -- you can use it to get newsfeeds from CNN or
BBC, as well as just about anything else, including news on
upcoming movies, DVD releases, your favorite band's tour updates, etc.
Once you get started, it's like having your favorite parts of the Web
come to you. No need to go out and check for updates all the time.
No more bookmarks!
"RSS" means "Really Simple Syndication." But that is just a fancy way
of saying that you can keep up with all the updates to "The CAD Times",
without having to check the site every week to see "what's new."
Whenever we put up a new page ("BRAND NEW") or update an old one ("UPDATE"),
we release it through RSS.
We can share our AutoCAD tips and tricks with you from time to time through RSS.
This gives you our AutoCAD information without you having to spend hours on the site.
Yes, RSS is amazing. No e-mail. No spam. It's so easy to subscribe and unsubscribe.
If you get tired of our information <and we're pretty sure you won't ;) >, you just
have to delete the feed. It's that easy!
And once you start, you'll soon be tracking all your other favorite
interests and news in the world.
How do you get started? Easy...
Download free RSS Reader first (skip to bottom if you do not want to

down to little old me...

Right-click (control-click for Mac users) on any orange RSS button on a
site, blog or news source that interests you. Start by right-clicking on the

Select Copy Shortcut ("Copy Link to Clipboard" for Mac), and paste
