Direct RSS allows the creation and maintenance of an RSS syndication file WITHOUT the requirement to have a Web site. Many blog publishing tools come with the capability of creating an RSS file of the blog. The purpose here is to create an independent RSS file direct from the desktop. A file of this type is accessible in any one of the RSS reader and/or aggregators available. A recommended news reader is NetNewsWire from ranchero.com. Direct RSS uses the RSS 0.92 format and the generated file uses the 10 most recent posts in the History.
