Ups... hehe... fixed it now. Thx for checking! Anything else needed in the feed? Maybe the text of the update?

i donkt know how you agregate data, but i like, when in rss there is at least one sentence of description - not only the title, date and author. but definately not the entire article, not even entire paragraph. rss is a tool that i translate to 'realy short sentences' :)

ps. to add some flavour to the feed, id tweak the no-inluded line from:

to:

SNIPET OF THE UPDATE

this email-like format might be a nice standout form other rss.

btw including full date of update is i think not needed - day, maybe, but hour? what for?

after you finish that i suggest optimising caching etc - i cant help here, but i know how hard rss can suck your bandwitch if not cached properly. anyway - nice to see new things :)

I'm using Firefox 1.5's Live Bookmarks. It works great and doesn't need any newsreader software, it's all in the browser. However, I noticed not all RSS fed sites are available through that. And I don't know how to get the feed if the browser doesn't give me the opportunity to do so (by clicking on that orange button next to the url).

I'm using a Yahoo Widget RSS feeder. I tried your URL Bugs, but I couldn't click and access the various newsupdates? Is it supposed to be like that?
