On the subject of Authentication in RSS readers (see original post,) it’s still quite early, but deep within the labs of Rasterboy Enterprises we’ve hacked AmphetaDesk to handle various authentication flavors by making AmphetaDesk’s Mychannels.pm module use curl to download files…

Of course since this might conflict with some of the basic goals of AmphetaDesk (cross platform, self-contained) you probably won’t see this in the next version… but who knows, after a bit more hacking perhaps a patch of some sort might appear. You know, open-source and all that…

(Right now it’s still in “I wonder if I can do this” mode rather than “fully tested and ready to share” mode…)
