How can I set up my own 'lifestream' site that I control?

I'd like to set up a 'lifestream' on my website, logging all my online activities automatically and in real-time, similar to Friendfeed but that doesn't require me to be part of someone's idea of the perfect social network. Is this possible and if so, how? [more inside]

Display a custom rss feed in the same way that iGoogle does when you add a feed normally?

I am attempting to create a Google Gadget that displays RSS feeds on the iGoogle page. The problem that I'm having is that the gadget does not display the RSS in the same way as adding an XML to iGoogle does, there is a different display depending on theme and device. [more inside]

Intelligent podcasts for my cubicle dwelling mom?

Help me keep my mom from going insane at her work! She has a boring sit-at-the-computer all day job, with crazy coworkers. Her work banned downloading and streaming media, so I helped her pick a simple 2 gig mp3 player. She listens to BBC streams, and I helped her find rss feeds for the relevant podcasts. Now she's all set up with Google Reader and a few feeds, and wants more. Trouble is I don't know what to recommend... [more inside]

How do I fool the rss feed into not updating?

Is there a way to update information on a website that has an rss feed and have the feed not show the pages as "updated?" I have a collection of news releases that were inconsistently showing some information. I made them consistent, but the next time I update the rss feed, every news release I did this year will come up as new. Any way to prevent that?

Fix my broken blog subscriptions!

One of the most obnoxious features of Thunderbird-as-RSS-reader is that when checking feeds it will display "http://feedurl.com/feed.xml is not a valid feed" in the status bar, but there doesn't seem to be any actual log of the broken ones anywhere, nor does there seem to be any way to view the errors as a list. I can export my list of feeds to an OPML file, but the only OPML validators i've been able to find online only tell me if the opml file itself is a valid format, not whether any of the linked-to xml files are either 404-ing or otherwise broken. This leads to me to my followup: 1) Is there any way for Thunderbird to give me a list of feeds it considers to be broken and unretrievable OR 2) is there an online service that can take an opml file and check the links for validity?

Help! Recover my Sage panel entries.

Just started FireFox 3, after being a committed Opera fan. I added Sage as a plug-in to manage some dozen RSS feeds. Then, I added Foxmark to sync bookmarks, and suddenly all the Sage feeds in the left pane are gone. They're still in a bookmark folder called "Sage Feeds." I've Googled, and wiki'd, but I dont see how to get them back to the Sage panel where they belong.

Negative Filter RSS feeds??

How can I filter a feed based on the absence of terms rather than the presence? I've used feed sifter before, but this won't handle terms you want excluded? Specifically, I'd like to set up an rss to Amazon's Gold Box that excludes the terms jewelry, necklace and watch as that would massively cut down the clutter from this feed.

Problems With NPR Podcasts

Lately NPR podcasts such as Fresh Air, Wait, Wait..., and All Songs Considered have been acting wonky with multiple files of the same podcast, often incomplete, showing up in my podcatcher. I subscribe via Google Reader and dL files manually to my player, and have tried un- and then resubscribing to the feeds, but to no avail. Is it NPR's problem or an RSS issue on my end? I haven't been able to find any notices regarding service issues on the NPR sites.

Looking for SMS->web service

I'm looking for an online system that allows us to set up a number that people can sms text to from their cell/mobile phones. It needs to work in the USA, and ideally also support RSS feeds of the messages as they come in - or some similar feed - so we can extract the received texts. Failing the live feed, we could make do with an Inbox system and periodically scrape or manually extract the messages out. Also being able to reply to the incoming messages is a bonus but not essential.
