You know what would be cool, is if we could have an RSS feed from the headline page. It may already exist, and I just simply don't know it is there.

Also, would love to see authenticated RSS feeds for the Cutting Edge forum. :)

The RSS feed on the home page is in the left column labeled "Subscribe to this page".

RSS feeds for the cutting edge forums (Authenticated or not) are not possible since they must remain semi-private as per direction from DirecTV.

Thanks Chris for the pointer to the RSS feed.

I don't understand though. If the RSS feed requires authentication to read (for the CE forum), what would be the difference between that, and how the normal forum is now?

Currently you require authentication to read the forum (in vBulletin). If the RSS feed required the same authentication, wouldn't that provide the same level of "semi-privacy"?
