RSS/XML question

So say that there is a web site which I'd like to keep tabs on, but they don't offer an XML or RSS feed.  Let's say for purposes of this discussion that the saite is http://hitchhikers.movies.go.com/hitchblog/blog.htm, since it is.  Whenever it's updated, I'd like the info to pop up in my friends list, kinda like Alton Brown's blog shows up as alton_brown

I don't have the know-how, but maybe one of youze do...?

I don't have the know-how, but would like to know the answer just in case there is a website like tonguetied.com that i'd like to have on my friends page.

jiggery_pokery mentions a site in response, but I have my own issues with that beast. (ahem) Check all comments and you can follow...

http://myrss.com/ might be able to do the trick but I haven't used it myself.

I only learnt this yesterday because people want a RSS feed of Michael Moore's new blog, which is similiarly RSS-challenged.

Good luck!

Hm. I tried this. They certainly *try* to make it easy, where you just provide a URL and they do the checking and displaying. For free, you have to do a click thru, and sponsored links will take you directly to the item.

However, the feed they provide seems horrible. Of the five items on the page, they only picked up three. Even then, they picked up a link in an item and presented it as the whole item. Bah! *waves paw furiously at them* Just 'taint right.

Any ideas on how to natively do this or host it on my domain?
