I'm playing with a simple python MeFi text-based RSS checker. Code here

It's simple little python script that checks the MeFi rss feed every 60 seconds, and displays any new posts.
You can keep it running in a background terminal/cmd window for a realtime, text-only mefi fix.
Corrections/improvements welcome. There's some weirdness with the UTF encoding, for instance.
