Years ago, I was a frequent poster on the Notes.Net LDD developerWorks forum. Business committments and blogs cut my posting rate dramatically. Now, however, there are RSS feeds for the forums. I do most of my RSS reading in two instances of my own bloggergator application, but I decided to segregate out the LDD feed into a separate reader. I decided against Erwin's mail template enhancement for RSS, and went with the Madicon reader instead. The only reason for that is the volume. I just don't want that much volume of RSS traffic flowing through my mail file. Anyhow, the feed has been coming in for less than a day, and I've already posted responses four times. That's more than I've posted in just about any month in several years.

the RSS feeds prompted me to look again at the forum, I was quite prolific once, but the signal to noise ratio got me in the end. After not very long the unthreaded nature of RSS started to wind me up so I wrote a Konfabulator widget to read the ?readviewentries XML which does contain thread information.

I couldn't resist reviving the Notes.Net moniker in the widget!

What amazes me is just the volume of postings that come out of the 6/7 Forum. RSS is going to make it much easier to get a handle on what's going on in there and contribute when possible. The only issue is that you have to look at it daily or the unread count gets really daunting.
