Radio RTFM RSS feeds are go
Subscribe now to our Reg audio discharge
You demanded it and by the Lord Harry you've got it: Radio RTFM now has the RSS feeds we promised last week. The urls are: www.theregister.co.uk/odds/rtfm/headlines.rss and www.theregister.com/odds/rtfm/headlines.rss.
We've given them a spin in Bloglines and all seems well. The audio file for the first RTFM programme appears as an enclosure, so you should be able to have it downloaded automatically to your iPods. Let us know if you have any problems. And if you missed the show first time around the mp3 is available right here (19 meg mp3).
We're also now offering all of the sketches as separate mp3 files...
...so you can pick'n'mix your favourite bits. If you have any, that is. We asked for your feedback on our audio discharge, and it appears it's a bit like Marmite: you either love it or...
Going by the old adage, if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all, I have absolutely no comments I would like to make with regard to the first installment of RTFM.
I'm trying to be nice but I must say I was not a fan of RTFM. I didn't find it all that funny sadly. I'd recommend adding some exclusive content for RTFM listeners only. Exclusive opinion pieces would be nice.
Also bringing in guests for interviews as you mentioned would be great.
erm ... reading stuff is about 10x faster than listening to it, and you can't skim audio for keywords of interest. Who actually has the time to listen to this stuff? I know I don't.
Are you sure you aren't going web 2.0 by the back door?
God forbid. We agree about the reading thing, though. In future, we'll save precious time on going to the cinema by simply asking film studios to send us copies of their screenplays.
That's enough negative vibes. Let's indulge in a big group hug:
Great stuff, unique audio content, just like the text on your website. I am never quite sure if you're reliable news, sharp entertainment, or both. With your audio, that's truer than ever--except I guess you're both.
Lookin' forward to seeing the RSS feed and permanent link on your website.

r.e. RTFM. Claire Swires gives aural pleasure ? Gulp! I'll 'ave some of that. (This is the email gal isn't it ?)
She is indeed, bless her.
I loved "the Reg audio experience", and I love you and want to have your babies. I would sell my soul to hear this daily in a web radio format with maybe an automation through the day if I were to miss the live show, the automation might even have classic bits similar to the format of NHB. I feel warm and tingly all over having experienced this bit of brilliance.
I don't know you well enough to say I love you and my biological construction stops me from even thinking of wanting your babies, but the Podcast is brilliant!
One or two suggestions;
* BOFH! Put a BOFH or two in there (or maybe a BOFH presented show)!
* It seems to be a little quiet
Any chance of it being more regular than every month? It really rocked.
BOFH, eh? Hmmm...
very entertaining, though it needs more sex and violence and the snooty sounding wench should get her gear off in the next episode ;-)
Well, the "snooty sounding wench" has rather kindly agreed to do the next session while completely naked, which should add spice to the broadcast. And yes, that does indeed mean we'll be doing another RTFM, which should be available for public consumption on 13 December, or thereabouts. Subscribe now to avoid disappointment. ®
