Works fine for me with NetNewsWire on OS X.
I've just added the urls to 'bookmark live feed' on Firefox, which has always worked for other rss feeds. I don't know anything else about it other than that.
Though my Reader won't validate the 'All' one I just tried:
All four of the main feeds are being rejected. Here's the result for the 'features' one. Is this connected to the Â£ symbol weirdness we get?:
This feed does not validate.

... hey do not wish to be referred to as a ?supergroup? and this is by no me ... ^

It took me fecking ages to get round this shit last time I had problems. :-( Good luck with it, and cheers for putting in the time.
I'll have a look when I get a moment
At least when I tried. Fixed a few issues.
Let me know if it's working for you
All working fine!
what does RSS mean? </being a girl>
Basically, and i did copypaste this. The initials stand for 'Really Simple Syndication' (also Rich Site Summary - pick the one you like). What it does is announce changes to the website by creating a "feed" that can be read by the spider from an aggregator such as Bloglines or NewsGator.
So it means whenever there's an exciting new news story or event your newsreader will pick up the headline. Saves checking sites over and over and having to refresh them. Some news readers also look cunningly like REAL WORK which is good.
This is right yes, theo?
although I probably don't need to use that for DiS...
Darthy, the main advantage is when you check multiple sites, especially if sneakily at work when you don't want the world to know.
I have http://www.rssreader.com and using that I have feeds from:
DiS (well once more!)
The guys who host my websites (server up/down news)
So in one package I can quickly scroll through all the stuff that's been posted and decide what I'd like to read.
A lot of things give you RSS feeds.
something to do with repetetive strain from wanking.
so girls can't get it.
i've created http://syndicated.livejournal.com/disnews/ using the news feed. for your lj'ing pleasure.
