New look and RSS explained

I've also added a more prominent RSS logo to the sidebar in order to, hopefully, alert you to the fact that Panama Notes is available as a Live Feed. If you're not familiar with "feeds," RSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication" which summarizes information published on a website and alerts you when a new post (Note) is available.
You will need an RSS reader (if your browser doesn't have one built-in) in order to access the RSS content on Panama Notes. The good news is that many readers are available and most are free. If you need a reader check these:
- Feed reader (Windows)
- Google Reader Very easy, especially if you already have a Google account - no software to install
- NetNewsWire (Mac OS X)
- More RSS readers...
For those of you who had already activated a Feed - sorry about all the erroneous notices you received today. It should be back to normal, now that I have stopped fooling with the setup. Thanks for your patience.
