RSS Feeds

You know what would be cool(from a computer geek point of view) is to have a RSS feed of the new reviews and articles that come out on your site.

It should not be that complicated to set up. If you review items and then put them on the site you could just manually put entries into the RSS file. Or if you do it automatically through PHP or something along those lines, you could just write another function to output the item to the RSS file at the same time as it does the normal database transaction.

Yes we certainly do know each other

I was directing my first reply to you Blake so I am interested in doing this in the semi-near future (once I finish my absurd amounts of summer school work [this week])

Cool I am in, I have a fair amount of spare time where I don't really have much going on and am always looking for some new projects.

gabrielboys@hotmail.com is my email address

[edit] By the way thanks Shane, that was a good time, only too bad I was so far behind after the first day. I am in trouble if you figure Pyramids out.

guessing RSS feeds will be substantially easier after the big part is done?

i had talked to shane about a month ago about getting something together.

i'm looking to get DGR automated in the review process (ideally with verification that the review should be posted) and basically reduce the headache that is site maintnance and move over to a database format.

i'm up for getting the site more attractive and up to date with newer tech stuff if the opportunity were to present itself, RSS feeds, etc.

Yea I'll be converting the reviews in a little while. Blake, do you have anyone to actually do the manual database entering? That's not my favorite thing to do, but whatever....
