Recommended readers

We recommend any readers that allow you to set message-checking frequency to 30 seconds. We do not recommend Google FeedFetcher for this reason. People around our office like these readers:
  • Bloglines with the Bloglines Notifier
    • This is the optimal reader as it notifies you when a new item goes live.
  • Firefox Livebooks with the RSS Ticker extension
    • Your browser must be active to see the notification.

Steps for changing the update frequency to 30 seconds are as follows:
  • Bloglines
    • Right-click Bloglines Notifier icon in system tray.
    • Select "Settings".
    • Change "Check messages every" to 30 seconds.
    • Click Okay.
  • Firefox Livebookmarks with RSS Ticker extension
    • Open the Firefox browser.
    • Click the "Tools" menu and then select "Add-ons".
    • Highlight "RSS Ticker" and then click the Options button.

    • Under "Update Frequency" choose "30" from the drop-down menu.

One Deal at a Time

At Steep and Cheap, we sell premium, core outdoor gear and clothing at prices that are downright criminal. Here’s how it works: Steep and Cheap sells one screamin’ deal at a time until it’s gone. The deals are fat, so they sell out fast. You have to act fast or you’ll miss it, but don’t stress—as soon as one deal sells out, we kick off another. It’s back-to-back deals all day long. Learn more.
