Lifestream for WordPress

Lifestream for WordPress looks like a great plugin – just like FriendFeed, it will gather stuff from all your social networking feeds and display them in a post or in its own page.

My idea was to put it in a page and thus have a backup of Twitter, del.icio.us and all the other stuff I use in my WordPress database. Searchable, organized – what more can you ask for?

Unfortunately Lifestream only works with PHP5, and my webspace is still on PHP4. I can run PHP5 as CGI, but this created all kinds of issues with file permissions.

Crap… that would have been nice. Even worse, now I don’t dare ask my provider to move my blog to a PHP5 server (which is available) because I might get the same issues…
