    R&D : Research and Development ?

    May be shabbir can kindly add some scripts for the purpose.
    Well, I don't need info such as total members, members online etc.. as much as I need the latest posts and threads.

    Can I get the latest post from feeds, I mean can I write some script that would read the latest post's title and it's url from G4EF Feeds ??
