IM BBS: news directly to your instant messenger

I have been working on this IM BBS idea for a couple of weeks now. Its basically a bulleting board which you can connect to using your instant messenger. Currently the most useful function is the direct RSS link delivery. Every time there is a new entry in an RSS feed you are subscribed to the thing messages you the story and a link. Much more convenient to receive an interrupt than polling by repetitively hitting refresh on the slashdot page.
