FeedFire - build your own RSS feeds  
Steven pointed this out - FeedFire is a free tool for creating RSS feeds from websites that don't already have them. Crucially, it enables you to scrape sites that aren't maintained by you. It's fairly easy to work (though you have to register) - in only a few minutes I'd created a feed for the Victoria University library's news page. Copy the feed into Bloglines, and I'm automatically tracking updates from the library.

I like it.
