Yet another new site!!

I'd been toying with the potential uses for RSS feeds for awhile and had put together some test page to explore the possibilities. this weekend I finally put it all together into a site that should prove very useful to a lot of people.

The site is Eleven O'Clock News. And uses RSS feeds from various news sources to create a sort of one stop news site for browsing headlines. I know it will save me time, because now I can focus on this one site for a lot of my news reading rather than popping into dozens of other sites. (I always open the individual articles in a new window, so I can keep track of where I am). I included all of the blogs on my frequent visiting list that had feeds that I could use.

Interesting enough, I'd spent a lot of time trying to get various XML processors to work, and finally had to write one of my own. Some of the feeds from blogs that I wasn't able to use are atom feeds, so I may try to see how to process that format, so I can include those as well.

Although, I think there is an error on the Washington Times links. Too many '/''s as far as I can see.
