Someone should use this to extend it to other mediums, like IM and silc.

    i would like to say there are a lot, but i know specifically of a few irc bots that support reading RSS feeds, including the perl infobot. i used to have one set up to get deadly feeds.

    I am running it on my bot now. Works fine. :)

    I like deadly, but the new postings of headlines is one a day or less. Seems having something that kept track of headlines would be most useful for rapid changing headlines, like slashdot or infosecdaily speed.

    Yet I suppose there is nothing wrong with writing it now to be able to use in the future when this site gets more popular.
