The cool thing is that some have already implemented other "toys" with this API, including a mobile friendly page to monitor your Trademe auctions, a Google Gadget to list Tade Me auctions in iGoogle, and a cool widget to list Trademe auctions in your blog (below).
Since we released our own Geekzone Gadget for Windows Vista (below) I've been thinking of exponsig the API XML, so here it goes:
http://gadget.geekzone.co.nz/gadget_index.asp is the main XML file, with a list of forums, timestamp. To list each forum's discussions you can use the forumID and retrieve the RSS for each forum for example http://gadget.geekzone.co.nz/geekzone_forums_rss.asp?forumid=48
I know someone is working on an Apple Mac OS Dashboard widget. Anyone else interested in creating a mobile friendly version and perhaps a widget for iGoogle?
I just ask one thing: don't hammer the XML with requests every second... A good start is a ten minute cycle.
