I see that there is an option to get an RSS feed.  What is that?  What do the options mean (bloglines, my yahoo)?  I do get blogs through Google Reader..can I do that with you?  Thanks for the help.  BTW, I like the math problem; so much easier to read than those mushedtogether letters!

This forum software (simplepress) is new to us too and we're learning as we go.  Yes, I like the math problem too.  I don't know why more sites don't use that instead of those hard-to-read captchas.

As for RSS – if you already use Google Reader, then you know how feeds work.  Yes, you should be able to read this in your reader as well.  What you get is all the forum posts in your feed reader.
