    Default Fooling Around

    So, idle hands, the Fool decided to fiddle with some stuff.

    I added NZ Herald and Sharetrader to my RSS reader.

    Well the Herald didn't last a day. Only click-bait crap posted, stories from business
    section, which I was expecting - No Shows. Dumped the Herald.

    With Sharetrader, nothing on RSS. Suspect ST would like me to authenticate (site login)
    to receive feed. Anybody know the answer??
    ( Don't want to try it and see, try to avoid embedding logins. Much safer to do stuff manually )

    Sharetrader Picks 2018 https://sites.google.com/view/sharet...icks-2018/home
    I use FFQ ( 57.0.3 ) as my browser. Can see the bar chart of top picks on Home Page.
    But only titles and instructions for Overall Result, Individual Result and Shares Info.

    So, fired up my old school Palemoon browser ( which I have because FFQ doesn't have
    a decent Download Manager addon ) and there they are: Excel spreadsheets .
    Nice job SylvesterCat


    cheers fool

    And this for just Herald Politics.

    Thanks for this. Those feeds require registration on Herald site.
    I've looked at the rego requirements, read the Privacy Policy, in particular the collected information
    sharing arrangement ( almost universal ! ), and decided the price of participation is too high for me.

    Added ST login info to RSS feed reader. Nothing coming through.
    Checked FAQ for advice, not mentioned but seems RSS is not active on ST site.
