Ahhh, the joy of visiting the Denny's Menu and seeing that another installment of sb_email.exe has been added to the Homestar Runner canon. It is an excitement rarely equalled in online life.
But the infrequency with which Strongbad cranks up his email console is often maddening. Stretches of 3 or more weeks have been known to pass before he graces us with his delectable derision once again. The Homestar Runner team seem blissfully unaware of RSS, but thankfully someone at Interglacial stepped in, parsed Homestar's XML file and produced an RSS feed of all Homestar Runner content.
Thing is, I only really want to hear about Strongbad Emails; that's the gold. So, I ran Interglacial's RSS through Yahoo Pipes to get a feed of Strongbad Emails, and in the process proved to myself that Yahoo Pipes is actually pretty good :D
A pretty simple pipe in the scheme of things, but here you go: RSS for Strongbad Emails.
