    Question for any RSS savvy folks out there.

    So I finally hooked up my work email at work (Thunderbird) to update blogs, ie Reiss Pieces. This is pretty convienent since I can read about the Pats and have it automatically updated all the while making it look like I'm checking email and working really, really hard to contribute to the office :D

    The problem is Boston.com asks me for my username and password after about two articles - I do have a username there, but it's just a pain in the a**, requires me to open safari, log in, etc., and completely defeats the purpose of the point of a blog in the first place.

    Does anyone know a way around this stupid Boston.com feature? I never cared while I was simply browsing, but when I'm doing the blog via my email, it really defeats the whole purpose.

    But will that effect it in Thunderbird? Cuz what I'm really hoping to do is view the material from my email, it's more convienent, saves time and looks like I'm working. ;)

    Off your topic but, I have to say I have a lot less respect for Reiss after he picked SD by 7 last week. What the hell Pats team was he watching the week before?

    i dont think it was that off base...SD suposed to be top 3 team and we had a scandal going on. I disagreed but i wouldnt say way off base just wrong.
