Howdy! It's true that I've built a gadget (powered by RSS/XML) in the past. I would be willing to look into a re-design, if this is a service you'd fine useful. To get us started, I should ask whether your system has a webserver on it anywhere, or any kind of common file-server. If this is going to be a local, non-internet service, that would be an important aspect.
If you'd like to get ahold of me through another method, drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
(Thanks for the heads-up Aaron!)
