I don't pretend to know anything about RSS, other than stick in the link and get the posts in Thunderbird. I do know that links for feedspot.com don't work. I'm guessing they have some kind of "use our reader" thing going on, but is there a way around it? I really don't want to have to use several different ways to access RSS feeds, but it seems the majority of those I'm interested in use feedspot.com. I'm leaning toward the "I'm not THAT interested!" 'tude here. :-)

Thanks!

Does the feed validate?

https://validator.w3.org/feed/
Linux Desktop - AMD Athlon(tm) II X3 455 3.3GHz | 8.0GB RAM | GeForce GT 630
Windows Notebook - AMD A8 7410 2.2GHz | 6.0GB RAM | AMD Radeon R5

NOPE!

"It looks like this is a web page, not a feed. I looked for a feed associated with this page, but couldn't find one. Please enter the address of your feed to validate."

And thanks for the tip. I didn't know about the feed validator, but taking another look at the page with the RSS feed link, the *actual* link is kind of hidden in there with the other info on the blog. THANKS! :-)
