Tonight I have added the ability to subscribe to individual front page articles via Microsoft web slices. Web slices work a little like RSS feeds in that they are a way of linking to a source of information that is constantly updating or changing.

I personally don't use RSS or web slice services although many other people certainly do. So if you have Internet Explorer 8 and use the web slice feature this web browser contains then Vintage Radio will now support it fully.

To subscribe to a web slice it is just a matter of hovering your mouse over the article, waiting for the little green logo to appear at the top left of the article and then clicking on that logo to receive further instructions on how to save the link to your web browser's favourites bar.

At this time only Internet Explorer 8 supports this feature.

Update: The webslice feature has been shifted from each thread to Vintage Radio Headlines and Radio of the Week as a permanent link to individual threads seems pointless in a function like this - where subscribers expect a single content resource to change rather than stay the same.
