If you've been paying close attention to the menu bar at the top of the site, you'll notice a link to our Weblogs. We recently started these to provide a way for people to share their day-to-day experiences with SQL Server and related development tools. We'll better integrate these into the site in the near future. We hope you'll find this new format informative and helpful. It should be a less formal way to share information on SQL Server and development.

We started with a small group of people that have been active in the forums. We're currently looking for additional people that are using SQL Server or developing against it -- especially using .NET. Is this you? Do you have something to say? If you'd like to share your experiences, tips & tricks or comments on a weblog, please contact me about getting setup to post.

Article Link.

Just a quick question about the integration. Could that include a new RSS feed for the article abstracts? I think I'd love it if more of the sites I visit would include a feed for updates :)

OK
Graz got to this first.
SQLTeam now has an RSS feed for recent articles at http://www.sqlteam.com/rss.asp
We are going to announce it on the front page soon, but before then, can anyone here that uses an aggregator subscribe and let us know if there are any problems.

I've no idea what an RSS feed is...(a link to a definition/description might help?)
however when i clicked on the link.....http://www.sqlteam.com/rss.asp

I got a new (IE 6.0) window with the following (extract below)....is this what is expected to happen?

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1" ?>
- <rss version="2.0" xmlns:dc="http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/">
- <channel>

mmm......"search web for rss. Results 1 - 10 of about 3,780,000."...I've a lot more reading to do..


thanks for the link....it's a good start...except while it describes "what it does"....it doesn't describe "what it'll do for me"

...which is the IQ.



and as to part 2 of my original question?....is what was posted to be expected?

OK Basically, a news aggregator program will collect RSS data from sites you subscribe to so you can keep up with news sites and weblogs when they are updated without having to visit each one.

Yes, that is how it is meant to look. That is how IE renders XML data.

Hope that helps

Just don't ask "What does RSS stand for?"

Thanks Damian for the link about what an RSS feed is. I knew about the technology, I just didn't know that's what it was called.

That's easy. RSS stands for truth, justice, and the acronym way!!

It's kind of odd. How many acronyms change depending on which standard of the technology you are reading?


But seriously, it looks fine from my aggregator. If another article is posted I'll tell you if it makes SharpReader go kablooeey.
