While we wait for the Sluggy RSS feed to be restored ಠ_ಠ I've created a temporary unofficial RSS feed.

https://dfab-179016.appspot.com/sluggy-rss.php

The feed includes only the latest comic (and doesn't update when there's a news entry with no comic). It should be good enough for feed readers that query the feed at least daily.

I've included the Google AppEngine PHP implementation below. It's designed to scape the http://sluggy.com home page no more than once a minute.

P.S. This only took about half an hour to code. I feel certain that the Sluggy admin team could do the same in less than a day.

Code:
<?php

function get_sluggy_date() {
   $memcache = new Memcache;
   $date = $memcache->get('date');
   if ($date) return $date;
   $homepage = file_get_contents("http://sluggy.com");

   preg_match('/data-comic_date="(.*?)"/', $homepage, $matches);
   $date = $matches[1];
   $memcache->set('date', $date, 60);
   return $date;
}

$comic_date = get_sluggy_date();
$url = "http://archives.sluggy.com/daily.php?date=$comic_date";

Header( "Content-Type: application/atom+xml; charset=utf-8");


echo '<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>';
?>
<feed xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom">

  <title>Unofficial Sluggy Feed</title>
  <link rel="self" href="https://dfab-179016.appspot.com/sluggy-rss.php"/>
  <updated><?= $comic_date ?>T06:00:00Z</updated>
  <id>https://dfab-179016.appspot.com/sluggy-rss/</id>

  <entry>
    <title>Sluggy <?= $comic_date ?></title>
    <author><name>sluggy</name></author>
    <link href="<?= $url ?>"/>
    <id><?= $url ?></id>
    <updated><?= $comic_date ?>T06:00:00Z</updated>
    <content type="html"><![CDATA[<a href="<?= $url ?>"><?= $comic_date ?></a>]]></content>
  </entry>

</feed>
