I made a thing for generating full-history RSS feeds for sites that have consistent weekly update schedules and predictable URLs:

For example, here's a feed for Doonesbury:

And one for Schlock Mercenary:

If your feed reader supports RFC5005, these feeds will show every post ever made, not just the most recent ones. But your feed reader probably doesn't support RFC5005... yet?

@jamey Neato, if I used rss more I'd probably appreciate this more. Still, go Schlock Mercenary!

@aleph That's fair! Speaking for myself, I haven't used RSS much due in large part to a few bad usability problems for the use cases I care about. I'm building tools like this one in an attempt to fix some of those problems. Maybe if I'm successful you'll eventually find RSS more appealing too. 😁
