    I'm trying to see if theres a way to have a post automatically create its own title in a flash slideshow just like the one here at http://movies.msn.com/. Any ideas?

    Just write a flash app to display your RSS feed (or a custom XML/RSS feed). I'm not aware of any existing flash apps or plugins, but that looks fairly simple. PS Don't forget graceful degradation, so the spiders and js/flash phobics will still see your post list.

    Gee this gives me some ideas for the spare 5 seconds a week I have ;-) actually, it really makes sense for real estate so maybe I'll build something...

    Very clever! I didn't know Flash RSS readers existed but a quick good search turned some up. I will post a solution should I find a good one.
