Laridian Blogs on Your PocketPC

Posted on: August 5th, 2006 by Craig Rairdin No Comments

If you are reading these blogs I can probably make two assumptions about you: 1.) you are technologically literate, probably above average and 2.) you use a PDA. As such, what I’m going to say here may not be anything new.

If you’re using Internet Explorer on your PocketPC, our blogs don’t display well.

But, there is a really nice solution to that.

Our friends over at Ilium Software have a very nice program for PocketPC and Smartphone called NewsBreak that handles RSS feeds very nicely. Laridian’s blog site is available as an RSS feed and can be viewed using NewsBreak on your PocketPC or Smartphone.

Once you’ve purchased NewsBreak and installed it on your handheld tap New and then select “I know the Channel’s URL (RSS)” and tap Next. In the first field (“Enter the URL for the new Channel”) type in

http://blog.laridian.com/?feed=rss2

If you’re connected to the Internet tap “Download Default Name” and “Laridian Electronic Publishing” will show up in the “Enter a name for the new Channel” field. If you’re not connected to the Internet, simply type it in. Tap Finish and you’re done.

You can also add the comments from the Laridian blog to NewsBreak by going through the same steps but putting

http://blog.laridian.com/?feed=comments-rss2

in the URL field and “Comments for Laridian Electronic Publishing” in the name field.

After refreshing your channels you will now have Laridian’s blog on your PDA in a more readable form.

Enjoy!
