syndicated feeds?

I'm trying to pull together a link or even a page for syndicated feeds (RSS). I've noticed that show=c and show=p on the friends page exclude RSS feeds that are set up to be "friend" entries. They'll only show up if you don't specify the show= limitation. This is, of course, greatly inconvenient, and I've been poking about a bit to see if a coding workaround is possible. Thoughts?

Finally an answer from the LJ support team ... "show=y" will get you the syndicated feeds on their own page. Additionally you can combine things, like "show=py" will put rss & personal updates on a single friends page.

--BEG, off to check the LJ support pages for any answers yet...

I was trying to implement the Scrolling Horizontal Entries tutorial (after having put it off for some time, having done the bulk of my customization over a year ago and just now having renewed energy enough to fine-tune), and I have a question:

Is the "print_system_box_top();" in there absolutely necessary? It makes the line between the top of the component and the body of the component all thick and ugly, and when I try to put in the code I used to fix that before, the scrolling doesn't work anymore. Is there a way around this?

Edit: the print_system_box_top(); also seems to be causing friends-locked entries to have less padding below the text, which also looks bad...
