RSSOwl, let the owl feed you!

Filed under: FOSS @ 3:16 pm

There’s a lot enough for me to open websites each day, well though not that much but can take more attention than work I have on desk. :)) Meanwhile this brain can’t store everything, with things around. So I’ve decided to use RSS reader as a choice.

For you who don’t know what RSS is, RSS stands for Rich Site Summary though some mentioned it as Really Simple Syndication. With RSS you can easily surf the “world” without bothering to remember each URLs you visited. Well I know, you can use bookmark for this. But don’t you bother to click all the bookmarks you have each time, meanwhile there are no new news on that website? With RSS you can sit nice and take a look only if there are new news on the websites you have been feed before.

To feed the websites that support RSS, you can use RSS reader. Lately, I have tried one and it’s quite nice, I think. I used RSSOwl on this case. This easy-to-install program made by written in Java, so it’s cross platform. You can use it on Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, Linux 64 Bit and Solaris. But make sure to have Java Environment
installed on the system to make the Graphical User Interface working, preferably 1.4.2 or 1.5.x version. FYI, I used RSSOwl 1.2.2. Beside that, you can also use liferea, Straw, Blam or Akregrator. The applications I just mentioned above were running on Linux. :)

Your Brain is 67% Female, 33% Male

Your brain leans female
You think with your heart, not your head
Sweet and considerate, you are a giver
But you’re tough enough not to let anyone take advantage of you!
What Gender Is Your Brain?
