ArcSite begins RSS syndication

All the news you need on one page

ArcSite logoArcSite, the German RISC OS news and forum website, has from this week provided an RSS feed, suitable for use with your favourite RSS client. RSS is a "format for syndicating news and the content" and can be used to let people know when a website is updated or changed.

ArcSite have also gathered the RSS feeds of all the other online RISC OS news sites together to produce an hourly updated web page that lists an overload in RISC OS news.

I was going to do some kind of meta-portal at one point, drawing together news from all the different RO sites. But someone's done it far better than I would have now, so never mind :)

Combining the RSS feeds is a good idea, but putting them on a page that only updates every hour seems to defeat the object a bit. Can't they set it up to update whenever an RSS feed does, or provide it as a combined RSS feed?

Just a note, your RSS is invalid. So, it's not very useful. [link] I suggest going here and doing a 2.0 version, it's a little easier for beginners. [link]
