    Okay I was reading an Opensolaris blog and came across this little python script:

    http://www.aaronsw.com/2002/rss2email/

    runs on unix and will email new rss feed entires to you insted of you having a seperat feedreader.

    Probably of use to windows users as well that have access to a unix box that they admin or can get ssh access to.

    enjoy.

    Yeah, I've seen this before actually and thought it was pretty cool.
    Largely a matter of personal preference, but I like to keep my feeds separate from my email though. :)

    hmm, that could work rather quite well. Just setup a mail rule to move and incoming mail from "x" address or with "xxx" in the body to a "RSS" folder and I could use that.

    But doesnt Mozilla Thunderbird support RSS?

    Alot of applications do. I'd use that purely because I can get my servers to do the hardwork and I dont really make use of RSS all that much, every time I try the RSS applications crash or bog down and I give up :p

    I dont use anything other than Firefox Live bookmarks, only because i cant find one that does it like NetNewsWire for Mac. But now that im using IE7 i dont even look at RSS now...
