Staying Connected

rss_logo_largeI just wanted to post a reminder that you can use RSS to follow us on this blog. If you don’t know what RSS is, a simple explanation is that it’s a way of being told when the blog has been updated, instead of remembering to check the site manually.

Most browsers have a built-in feature for adding RSS feeds to the bookmark list, but I personally prefer to use an RSS reader, such as Google Reader. Or, you can follow the instructions in this YouTube explanation:

I find RSS feeds to be really handy (I follow 158 of them at the moment)!

They recorded the event with a camera, and it’s quite fun to see people reactions when the “lady’s room” and “men’s room” signs switch places.

You can read more about the project on this link, or follow the jump to see one of the clips. Noteable highlight: the guy in the beginning (testing the signs) is thewreck!
