Subscribing to RSS

RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication, and is a standardised mechanism for finding out automatically if changes have been made to a web-site.  What this means for you, if you are interested in hearing about the news on this site without having to keep logging on to check, you can set up your computer or tablet to tell you automatically.
