      Hi, AskWoody!

      Please create your AskWoody Telegram Channel – it is very convenient and fast to read IT and Security news at Telegram.

      Thanks!

      As AskWoody is run by a very hard-working bunch of dedicated volunteers, and on a shoe-string budget (not a profit model), adding another service to have to manage doesn’t seem to be something of a natural fit…

      Telegram is not something that has extensive use, and it’s application to a Q&A information source doesn’t seem logical on first glance (to me, at least).
      🙂

      I agree with you.

      But now I created http://t.me/AskWoody Telegram Channel and connected to it autoposting bot from AskWoody RSS feed from my Andriod smartphone at no cost in a 30 minutes.

      Now I get instant notification from that channel, when something in posted here, at AskWoody Lounge.

      You can check it if you want.

      But perfectly if it was not link in message, but WebView, so it can be viwed right in Teleram Client like it is made for https://t.me/SecLabNews

        Ah. You’re using Telegram as an RSS reader.

        I use igHome, but rest assured that the RSS feeds work fine.

        I was concerned about setting up a Telegram server….

        Ah not quite… the AskWoody feed page only gives a notification of each new blogpost. It doesn’t give a notification of the Lounge posts (in the fora) 🙂

      No, not any server.

      But the way to instantly read your posts in a modern style. And Telegram is a good platform for that. Most of news I currently reading in Telegram channels now.

      Yes, that was exactly what I want.

    Please follow the -Lounge Rules- no personal attacks, no swearing, and politics/religion are relegated to the Rants forum.
