    I just spotted something new (or at least new to my notice) at the tops of pages...a blue and red button that says XML RSS. Mousing over it gives me the information that it is for subscribing to XML RSS for threads in that topic. What is XML RSS?

    XML = eXtensible Markup Language
    RSS = Really Simple Syndication

    If you have an XML RSS reader you'll be able to get streaming "new posts" on you computing devices. The more common use for XML RSS is to get streaming news on your desktop, pda and even cellphone.
