LJ in a feed reader

Now that Liferea supports remote OPML files (this in version 1.4), I've set up my livejournal feeds to automatically come and go based on my friends list. I wrote a little CGI script that transforms the LJ FOAF file into an OPML file (including the authentication that's needed to read protected LJ entries.

The code's at http://dinhe.net/~aredridel/projects/ruby/ljfoaf-to-opml/ (GIT repository), if anyone wants to adapt it. It's obviously not secure, but it should work in a pinch.

I also discovered that there were about 150 journals that I wasn't reading because my manual process managed not to add them. I'll be keeping up with people better now. Sorry about that, folks.

Paid and permanent users can also create an RSS feed of their friends page.

I apt-got liferea for Ubuntu based on this post, and have replaced Google Reader with it - I like it (for now). Google Reader has lots of nice keycuts, but I'm kinda over living my life in webapps now.

*goes back to facebook*
