I'm not sure how these websites are setup behind the scenes, so I don't know how ridiculous a request like this really is. Would it be possible to get a single RSS output of all my activity across all four sites?

Granted, I could build my own PHP script to routinely pull them all together, but that would just stink :)

Yahoo! Pipes.

It's dead easy. I've only used it once, and it still took me only a matter of minutes to pull together feeds from multiple sites, sort them, and produce a single combined feed.


Edit: OK, now I've used it twice. That link will take you to a page where you can enter your user IDs for the various sites, and get in return a custom, combined RSS feed of all your activity across all four of them. Have fun...

Doesn't mix all items together. SF 10:53AM appears after SU 11:00AM. –  Jonathan Sampson Jul 28 '09 at 18:47

That's where you use a sorter to sort by the timestamp. –  Shog9 Jul 28 '09 at 19:20
    
Related: Jeff, Why did you block Yahoo! Pipes? (Not sure if that block is still in effect.) –  Arjan Apr 9 '12 at 12:58

Google Reader allow you to do this.

Any RSS feeds you subscribe to with it can be placed in folders together. So for example, you could create a Stack Overflow folder, and add to it all your SO-and-friends feeds.

Thereafter, clicking on the folder name will show you all new items on all the feeds inside it, in one go.

Here's one I made earlier:

++This looks like the easier - and probably overall better - solution. –  Shog9 Aug 8 '09 at 0:19
