Thanks for thinking about taking a closer look at MindManager Pro 6. I'll look forward to checking it out (your show, I mean).

Which brings me to my next question: I want to be able to create a smart map part for your RSS news feed. But to do so, I need a URL to a page that looks like (the XML page for Marc Orchant's theofficeweblog. I can't find anything like this on your site. Am I missing it?

It appears (I just tried to add the above URL) that this type of RSS feed on my Windows Tablet with MindManager 6 isn't supported.

Basically Feedburner takes my rss.xml or rss.rdf file off of TypePad, and is a redirector. This is probably something that MindManager 6 needs to support in the future.
