Just been reading back through the posts here, and found references to these feeds turning out the information that I require, however I don't need to download all 20 most recent entries for each user. Is there a way to limit either of these feeds to only retrieve the last 1 post, or last 5 posts etc ?

Thanks in advance

Not that I know of.

The feeds aren't very big by today's standards, not compared to, say, a Flash banner ad; so I don't think you need to worry too much. Just fetch it and tweeze out the first post.

But using conditional-GETs, as the first commenter mentioned, is an important thing. Webmasters get annoyed if news-reader clients keep on fetching the same feed over and over again.
