Where can I find the RSS feed?
More information and links to PhinisheD's RSS feeds, and buttons for adding PhinisheD disussion board summaries to your My Yahoo!, Google, My MSN, or My AOL pages can be found on the RSS Feeds page.

What is an RSS feed and how it is used?
RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is an XML-based format for content distribution. An RSS feed is essentially a file encoded so that it can be easily used by another program or website. PhinisheD subscribes to an RSS feed from the Careers section of the Chronicle of Higher Education, and that feed is published on the Chronicle Careers board, a child board of Phinally Phinished. In addition to receiving the Chronicle feed, PhinisheD also offers RSS feeds of its own from each of its main discussion boards or from all boards at once. These feeds include titles and summaries and links to the full posts. RSS offers an easy way for you to be alerted to the latest discussions on PhinisheD. PhinisheD's RSS feeds are free and available to both members and nonmembers.

To use any of PhinisheD's RSS feeds, you'll need an application known as a news reader or aggregator. These applications display the RSS information feeds you have selected on your computer. Some news readers are available for you to download. Others are Web-based and let you read your feeds online. If you have an account at a web portal that supports aggregation, such as My Yahoo!, you can add RSS feeds to your personalized page. Once you have a news reader or web portal such as My Yahoo!, Google, My MSN, My AOL, or similar RSS-enabled service, you simply subscribe to the PhinisheD feed. Consult the documentation provided with the reader you are using for more info, or see the FAQ below.
