RSS

Well, I've parsed my RSS-feed journal.. sorta. I'm not ready to incoporate it into my (in-development) site just yet, but I'm getting closer...

In case anyone's curious, it's currently at http://ithilien.mine.nu/rssjournal.php. The reason I'm not ready to put it on my site yet is because I want to format the timestamp better:

I want (in EST/EDT)
21:20 7/1/03
instead of
Mon, 01 Jul 2003 00:22:59 GMT

But it appears it will take me a bit of time to figure out how to do that in PHP.

RSS Success! (sorta)

My journal feed now has a better timestamp. Still not perfect, but much better. It shouldn't be hard to get it the rest of the way now.

Oh, and there is one other thing with my journal feed before I'm ready to use it - I want to only display the (x < 10) newest items. Need to figure out how I'm going to do that: either simply truncating the list, or possibly setting a date criteria (the last week, the last month, etc).
