OT - Setting up RSS feed for discussion areas here

I'd like to set up an RSS Reader I just installed and I remembered the "RSS Available" buttons that used to appear here.  When I came to the site Tuesday (which sported a look that's new to me), I saw the ones at the bottom near the navigation buttons that say only "RSS".

When I use the context menu option in my browser on those RSS links, I am told the addtion of that link succeeded and it shows me link text like: http://forums.lhotka.net/forums/rss.aspx?ForumID=8&Mode=0

There is a manual way to add feeds, too.  So I can just type in that link text.  And both of these methods seem to have the same effect. The only text in the links that changes when adding links for the different discussion areas here is the ForumID value.  I thought I had these links working.  But I've discovered that the reader is populating all its CSLA-related folders with the content from the most recently-added discussion.  So presently, the Code-gen Templates, VS Templates, and Forum Administration folders are all populated with the posts from CLSA.NET discusson.

Is this likely a problem with my reader, or have I just given it ambiguous link text?  Should there be a different value for Mode? 

FYI, I have feeds set up successfully from the DevExpress community forums which behave properly and whose links have the same Mode=0 value in their links (for example, http://community.devexpress.com/forums/rss.aspx?ForumID=172&Mode=0 for the XtraReports discussion area).

Thanks in advance.

Go to the topic list for the forum and look near the bottom of the screen where it lists "Page 1 of ..." -- there's an RSS link at the end of that text.  The link for the code-gen forum, btw (note the ForumID, which is different for each forum):  http://forums.lhotka.net/forums/rss.aspx?ForumID=9&Mode=0  

Many browsers will also show the orange RSS icon in the address bar (you can get a plug-in for Chrome; FF & IE do this natively) -- this should do the same thing.
