Default RSS Feed?

Could there be an easy way to implement an RSS Feed for HBT? I try to surf some of my sites rather inconspicuously at work using RSS. This would be nice for here too.

You get a notice every time there is a new post. You can have a link on your homepage that lists new posts or you can even have your cell phone or PDA check for new posts every 15 minutes or so. Or there is software that would make your computer beep, etc. when there is a new post.

ORRELSE

It's basically 'scraping' the forum for new posts. I use it for a number of news feeds too. Basically it takes new news or new posts from a forum and makes them textualized (no graphics, images, colors etc).

Here's an image of the sharp reader aggregator.

I use RSS a bunch myself. I imagine it wouldn't be to difficult to create a feed that listed, say, the last 15 new posts.

A quick note, an RSS page is typically an XML document that stores a summary of recent events, links, etc. The format makes it easy to pull in and present in a number of different applications. For example, RSS feeds I subscribe to with Firefox are "live bookmarks": sort of a list of bookmarks to recent articles and posts that update automatically.

Hey TxBrew, if you decide you want to do this, here is a vBulletin mod for RSS feeds

It's also notable that besides the personal productivity related benefits, RSS feed are also often used by websites to display content from other websites. For instance, Shacknews uses RSS feed to pull the headlines from HardOCP.com, which they display in their left sidebar.

On anotehr note, you can use RSS feed to grab summaries of things, neatly organized at www.start.com (which is one of the cleanest MS sites I've ever seen)
