Symptom
When you try to sign up for automatic updates on the status page (http://status.nwea.org) you get a page of code and no option to subscribe to the feed.

Explanation
This issue occurs because Chrome does not natively support RSS or Atom feeds.

Below is a screenshot of how the RSS page looks in a browser that does support RSS, followed by a screenshot of how the RSS page looks in Chrome. The Atom feed looks similar in Chrome.

Solution
You must subscribe to the RSS or Atom feed using a different browser, or download a Chrome browser plug-in that allows you to display and subscribe to RSS or Atom feeds. There are a number of RSS or Atom feed readers available for download at the Chrome Web Store.
