Irwin Lazar <email@example.com> quoted an article saying "In less than 48 hours many of us will be installing Tiger OS-X and with it a brand new Safari browser that can read and display RSS feeds in a simple easy to understand manner. That upgrade while great for the consumers, could come as a big shocker for those blogs whose feeds are included as part of Safarišs default starter package. Infact it could be the biggest stress test for RSS thus far!" a) that's OS-X Tiger. :p~~~ b) The Biggest Stress Test For RSS Thus Far? Okay, let's get a handle on things here. RSS is XML over HTTP; nothing more. As long as the HTTP infrastructure can handle the traffic, and as long as the server can handle the big spike in HTTP requests, I see no reason why this should be a big deal, and I see even less reason why the article cites the event as a defining event for RSS. (It's not.) > Some food for thought: Just ate lunch, but thanks anyway. -- JustThe.net - Apple Valley, CA - http://JustThe.net/ - 888.480.4NET (4638) Steven J.
