Repairing Damaged CDs
If you have children, as most of us at homeschoolblogger do, then you probably have the same problem I do — numerous scratched CDs and DVDs. I came across this awesome resource from a link in Dr. Mercola's newsletter: How To Make Damaged CDs Work Again.
I mentioned back in this entry that I had finally figured out the whole RSS feed thing. Want to know? :)
First, I wanted to mention…if there are some of you out there who may still be using Internet Explorer and Outlook…umm…don't. Both IE and Outlook are well-known for their viruses, pop-up ads and spam. There are safer alternatives!
All I can say about Thunderbird is…NO SPAM! Thunderbird has excellent junk mail controls. Once you mark something as junk, you can have any further mail from that sender automatically deleted before it ever reaches your inbox.
Okay, now that I have given you the whole Mozilla plug, I will explain the RSS. It is sooo easy. I didn't even need a tutorial to figure it out, although I found a good one here. Your Thunderbird will pretty much walk you through it.
To subscribe to a blog feed, you need to know what it is. Here at homeschoolblogger, the feed account is http://www.homeschoolblogger.com/rss.php?u=(whatever the user name is)
For instance, to subscribe to my blog, the address would be http://www.homeschoolblogger.com/rss.php?u=Janne
So if you were to subscribe to my blog, you would do so by going to RSS News & Blogs, Manage Subscriptions, Add, and put http://www.homeschoolblogger.com/rss.php?u=Janne for the URL
It's that simple! You can add as many different blog feeds as you want, and as people post to those blogs, you will get the updates in your email!
