Many of the headline grabbers are listed there, most sites such as
www.advogato.org make headlines available in the spiffier rss format.
slashdot uses rdf and homebrewn xml and a legacy ultramode.txt file,
wxslash which is so old that I don't even use it myself does uses this
file http://www.csn.ul.ie/~caolan/docs/wxslash.html Its subsection
graphics are well behind the current slash ones at this stage and its
written in (gulp! wx), and memleaks like a sieve.
At that time slashdot was lagging the ultramode file slightly behind the
actual story posting on the front page, I put that down to an attempt to
make automated first posting nontrivial.
