Welcome to Lane Tech!


Welcome to our blog. This space will serve as a major resource for you throughout your time at Lane. I will often post information about upcoming standardized tests, special dates, and even school events on this blog. It will behoove you to set up an RSS feed so that you will never miss a post or any valuable information.

To the right, you will notice several widgets. There is a school calendar which has school-wide events in Myrtle as well as division specific events in Gold! There is another widget that links to both the student and parent portals for IMPACT. You should use these links to check your grades. You can search for keywords in posts as well.

Below are some of the most important items you will need for the upcoming school year.

RSS Feeds: A Guide

RSS (most commonly translated as "Really Simple Syndication" but sometimes "Rich Site Summary") is a family of web feed formats used to publish frequently updated works—such as blog entries, news headlines, audio, and video—in a standardized format.[1] Setting up an RSS feed is very user friendly and allows a user to get notices of updates on their desktop, instead of habitually checking sites. Think of it like a subscription to a magazine. You don't have to go get the new issue, it's delivered to your door!

First, you will need a RSS feed reader. I recommend:

Once you have downloaded and installed the feed reader, you need to set up your feed. I will walk you through a setup with FeedReader3.

  1. With the program open, hit F3

  2. The screen that pops up will ask you for the address of the feed. Simply copy and paste the following url in the box: http://feeds.feedburner.com/division370

  3. Click Ok.

That's it! Minimize FeedReader (but don't close it) and it will show an update every time I make a new post. Notice that there is a grey box in your system tray now. That is the FeedReader icon and it will turn orange any time there is a new post to read, if you happen to miss the pop-up.

Make sure that FeedReader is open every time you restart your computer or it won't be able to tell you when I make an update!

The following is a syndication option to help keep you updated on when I post!
