RideOn Service Interruptions Now Avaiable via RSS

RSS (Really Simple Syndication) provides a convenient way for Web sites to distribute their news headlines or other current content listings to other Web sites and individual users. RSS feeds are available free from thousands of news organizations, magazines, newsletters, hobbyists' sites and more. By subscribing to these Really Simple Syndication (RSS) feeds, advanced users can have news headlines and article previews delivered in an RSS reader or aggregator. RSS offers a convenience because you can subscribe to feeds to syndicate information from several sources and automatically aggregate headlines from all the sources into one list. You can quickly browse the list of new content without visiting each site to search for new info of interest. Whenever you see this (or most often ) it should link to an RSS feed that you can subscribe to via your RSS client.

RideOn’s “RideOn Service Interruptions” RSS feed is available here.  It is a small XML file coded according to the current version RSS 2.0 based on the  UserLand specification. Note that these service alters available via RSS are exactly the same as those on our website RideOn Service Interruptions. RideOn’s site indicates the availability of the content in RSS format with the logo

Here is the RideOn RSS feed as it appears on a desktop computer in FeedReader, one of many free RSS feed readers.
