Re: New Holiday Layout & My RSS Feed

I suggested above that maybe you need to find an RSS reader that will actually allow you to put in your username and password in order to get those forums. I have no idea if such an RSS feeder exists though - perhaps look over at versiontracker?
So the feed is working, and like you said it's not letting you filter by forum. That's OK. I think that the authentication idea would be great except that I don't know how to it. Dime uses http basic authentication. OiNK embedded a passcode. TTD is using cookies and my newsreader (Newsgator) uses IE as it's engine so it works automagically. I don't think that technique is widely used, but I could be wrong.

Again... Just some info.
