Hi Hart,

According to the man page, lynx is already the default browser for snownews.

to get the URL of an RSS feed and paste it into the add command. I tried the 
main page of a site I think has an RSS feed but it didn't work. Isn't there 
some easier way? Or maybe there isn't really an RSS there; I'll have to
