Question: 

This site is ok, but I wish I could do things like post code samples, view new comments in my favourite news reader, etc. Is there anything like this available?

Answer: 

There are a few new features on the site:

RSS Feeds: Each forum always had their own RSS feed, but I just created master feeds for all new forum posts and new FAQs:

FAQs

Forum Posts

Code syntax highlighting: I recently installed Drupal's Geshi module into this site, which allows users to post blocks of code to Forum posts and comments. To do this, just put the <code/> tag around your code like this:

<code type="php">
function foo($arg) {
    // code goes here
    return 1;
}
</code>

...to get this:

function foo($arg) {
    // code goes here
    return 1;
}
