Quicker than RSS feed

This seems like a handy feature to show visitors to your site where your latest updates are.

On my site it avoided a timeout message I was getting with an RSS feed list in the widget area.

A problem has cropped up. I have been adding page categories to most of my pages over the past few days so the Page Updated date does not currently reflect significant changes to content. Hopefully this will improve as the weeks go by.

I have been modifying the Date Created fields to reflect significant changes for RSS feed.
