Hey Shad

The RSS feed on the home page works very nicely. Now that is another major leap forward for MLS.

What is an RSS feed and whats so good about it.
Sounds interesting, I'll have to check it out.  Thanks.

On the old forum I used the Active Topics feature and had it automaticallly update every 15 minutes, showing posts from the last 30 minutes.  I kept the browser on screen with whatever I am working on (Word, V.B., Solitaire, etc.) in the foreground and small enough that the Active Topic page was barely visible to one side.  When I noted the page updated I could view the new posts that I was interested in, maybe check other sites and then go back to what I was doing.  It worked well, but now the new Active Topics page does not automatically update (not that I have noticed, anyway) so I need a new method of monitoring for new postings.
I tend to read missives in almost all the various forums so it would be useless to try to limit it to not monitor just one or two... besides I might miss something good if I did. !
