The Charmer

"Last Updated" date?

I'm writing an app which aggregates the "Last Updated" (date of most recent post) dates for my flist. What is the recommended way of getting at that data? I'm currently screen scraping the profile pages, and that seems unnecessarily processor intensive on both LJ's end and mine. Is that data exposed anywhere more convenient/less antisocial to get programmatically?
