Is there any chance you could make an RSS feed for the PM News page?

Sure, do you happen to know any decent tutorials on how to do that? I've never published a feed before (although I'm familiar with the concept, the XML format of RSS, and have subscribed to feeds myself).

edit: nevermind, i found plenty of tutorials with a simple google search

This would be great.  I tried monitoring the PasswordMaker forum with a program called WebMon.  It scans a specific url at a user specified intraval.  Unfortunately it seems every time the invision board is loaded, code in the html randomly changes, so there appeared to be an update every time it was scanned.  It does however scan the passwordmaker.org download page and news page, so that works great.  But it would be nice to have the RSS feed.

I will add the RSS feed.

To monitor the forum, you can either use the "View New Posts" link in the upper-right and/or use the "Subscribe to this Forum" link at the bottom of every forum (e.g., http://forums.passwordmaker.org/index.php?showforum=3) for this one. That will send you an email whenever someone posts a new topic in that forum. You can also subscribe to threads by clicking "Track This Topic" in the upper-right of a thread. You'll get an email when a reply is posted.

The emailing bit doesn't always seem to work. I'm considering shrinking the number of forums from 4 to 1 or 2 to make them easier to view. What do you think?

Let me know if "View New Posts" works out for you.
