WordPress: Publish RSS to file system?

I’m looking for an easy way to semi-manually publish a WordPress RSS feed to a file system.

Here’s what I’m trying to do: we’re a group of consultants working with different customers on-site. I’d like to use local WordPress installations on the laptop to capture different types on information that might be useful internally. As we often don’t have network connections, I’d like to copy the resulting RSS feeds to a file on a server occasionally, where it can be picked up by another app to aggregate the different users.

Has anyone done something like this before?

  6. Presumably you’re backing up the WP databases on the laptops onto some server.

    If not, why the hell not?

    Anyway, why not set up a script to run duplicate WP installations on a server that your aggregator of choice can connect to, but off the backup copy of the database? Write-protect the backup copy so you don’t overwrite anything, or set up some fancy synchronisation script.
