Configuring the RSS news channel on the *start page* of Visual Studio 2005

In Visual Studio 2005, I do really like the feature of showing RSS feeds on the start page. Originally, the start page is used to display the product news but you can change it to show your favorite RSS feeds. I need to use Visual Studio 2005 every day, and I can get a glance at my favorite blog every time when Visual Studio 2005 starts.

Following is my current news channel settings in Visual Studio 2005.
–> Visual Studio 2005
   –> Tools
      –> Options
         –> (+) Environment
            –> Startup
               –> At startup: Show Start Page
               –> Start Page news channel: http://blogs.msdn.com/MainFeed.aspx?Type=AllBlogs
               –> (Y) Download content every: 7 minutes
