Default Search Result Updates from Craigslist

hello all,

You may already know but I was pleased to discover that the archaic looking craigslist actually has functionality to send you updates to a particular search.

So you can use some advanced search syntax to make a good search

e.g. sailing (boat|dinghy) -(yacht|engine|powerboat)
This will show results if they contain the word sailing and at least one of boat or dinghy
The search will not show any results that contain the word yacaht engine or powerboat


Now we have a search if you go to the bottom right of the page there is an rss link, you can use your favourite rss reader to add a feed.

If you dont have an rss reader and dont fancy getting one you could use something like http://blogtrottr.com which will email you updates instead.

So now instead of remebering to check up on that search you will know when there are new results.

Some words of wisdom from a slow day downtown!
Merry Christmas

It's a good thing I looked more closely... I almost turfed this for spam in my groggy food hangover.

Now that you mention it, the title could easily be interpreted that way
