Note we now have a little icon thingy for our news page RSS feed! We've had the RSS for ages but not many people knew about it. Now you have no excuse! Let me know in the comments thread for this news post if you think we should do other stuff with the RSS feed or submit it to your favourite places etc. Yes I know we should have a teaser of content in there, I'm working on it. :) So yeah, the orange icon is down on the left navigation menu of the site, or in Firefox (or similar) you can click the orange button next to the address bar:
There's a zillion things you can grab RSS with of course, some people like Google Reader and there's an introductory video about that. Personally I tend to just make RSS feeds "Live Bookmarks" on Firefox, thusly:

So while you're in the forums, if you have an OpenSearch-compatible browser like FireFox or IE7, you should see an "Add OCAU Forums" option in the drop-down box of the search bar of your browser. Once added you can search our forums directly from your browser search bar:
Note you need to be in the forums to set this up initially, but then you can search while your browser is displaying any page.
Let me know if there's any other cool browser tricks out there we should be looking into. :)
