i just created a public style to give paid users an rss feed of their friends list.
edit that url appropriately; toss it into your favorite rss aggregator; and off you go. it will give you full journal entries and currents and images and all that.
be warned: it doesnt do protected entries (lack of authentication the www request) and it doesnt seem to want to use filters. i'll be poking at those problems here as i go.
also, you have to be a paid user to apply a random style to your journal.
enjoy. let me know if you have problems, suggestions, etc etc.
