I know things have been a bit quiet lately on Inside the System, but I hope this post helps to keep you in the loop with the blog in a more useful way. With the delay in posts, I hope many of you finding ways to deal with the life-altering trauma of not finding an update when you visit my site. For those of you that do check in daily to look for an update, there is a better solution, RSS.
For those of you familiar with Podcasts, you probably already know about RSS feeds. For those of you who don't, here's how they work. An RSS feed is equivalent to an "update beacon" on the internet. You can subscribe to the feed with an RSS Reader, which will then alert you when there is new post and then let you read it. There are many applications that give you this ability; Outlook, Internet Explorer, Firefox, as well as numerous websites. Simply googling "RSS Reader" will give you a plethora of options.
This is really the best way to keep up with your favorite Blogs and websites. I definitely recommend that you look into it.
For those of you that are interested, I put together a video on how to subscribe to my feed using Outlook.

I hope this provides you all with a reliable way to get your Inside the System fix.
