The Times news recipe?

Hello,
I haven't the faintest how to turn The Times into a news recipe.
I found a series of RSS feeds here:
http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/too..._services/rss/
however the filename for a graphics article and a print friendly one is a random number: e.g.
http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/new...SS&attr=797084
http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/new...=1223649456600
How do you 'skim' the random number and create a working news recipe?
