Following MAKE (or any RSS feed) on a tiny LCD

From the MAKE Flickr pool:

Flickr user YILDIRIM Ahmet put together this simple LCD RSS feed reader so that he could stay up to date with the latest MAKE Online posts, even when his computer monitor is off. He is using a Python script to parse the RSS feed and deliver new messages to an Arduino, which then displays them on the LCD. We love you, too, Ahmet!

Source code for the project is available here.
