What is RSS?

Although some may think RSS stands for Read the Sign, Stupid, it’s really short for Rich Site Summary or even Really Simple Syndication. This increasingly popular online tool turns web copy and other information into a neatly organized index of the latest articles and postings. So you can stay on top of the information you want, no matter how often it comes.

To start, all that is needed is an RSS reader program. Dozens of reader programs are currently available — and many can be downloaded for free (others offer more bells and whistles and charge for the software) .

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
