PowerBASIC RSS Newsticker

What are Newstickers or RSS-Feeds:

RSS is a format for syndicating news and the content of news-like sites, including major news sites like Wired, news-oriented community sites like Slashdot, and personal weblogs. But it's not just for news. Pretty much anything that can be broken down into discrete items can be syndicated via RSS: the "recent changes" page of a wiki, a changelog of CVS checkins, even the revision history of a book. Once information about each item is in RSS format, an RSS-aware program can check the feed for changes and react to the changes in an appropriate way.

RSS-aware programs called news aggregators are popular in the weblogging community. Many weblogs make content available in RSS. A news aggregator can help you keep up with all your favorite weblogs by checking their RSS feeds and displaying new items from each of them (by Mark Pilgrim).

Configuration (Browser):

You can see here an example configuration for the PowerBASIC Newsticker from this PowerBASIC HQ BBS site. I'm using InfoRSS for testing the RSS-Feed, an extension for Mozilla and Firefox browsers. But naturally, you can use your own favorit RSS-client.

Configuration (Mozilla Thunderbird):

That's the example of the internal RSS support of the mail and news client Mozilla Thunderbird.
