Sharing MAc Screen with Linux

How do I change the resolution of my Macs desktop when sharing the screen and viewing on a linux machine using tightvnc? I am screen sharing my Mac Mini w/ leopard. I can log in and see the screen using TightVnc on a Linux machine. However, I can only get full resolution that is painfully slow over the Internet. The low quality options on the VNC viewer have no effect and I can't find anysettings on the Mac to lower the quality.

How can I share 50+ podcasts?

What is a good way to share the 50+ (phew) podcasts I listen to? A number of friends hear me talk about the greatness of podcasts and they want to know what I'm listening to. I'm stuck as to finding a good way to share my list, I can't copy my subscription list from iTunes. If I had just a few, or if I wasn't adding/subtracting podcasts regularly, it wouldn't be a big deal. Is there a way I can place my list of podcasts on the web that I can update regularly, with descriptions and links to the subscription feeds?
