You've been feeded!

That's a pretty lame dis.  Maybe if I say it with more attitude: "You've been feeded, boyee!"

Ah, never mind.  Let me just publish one entry from the script's prefs file:

# yaml preferences for FeedMaker
# http://www.yaml.org/
# This file is read in and written by the FeedMaker python script
  - url: http://www.[namewithheldtoprotecttheguiltyyouknowwhoyouare].com
    rss: [namewithheld].xml
    etag: None
    last_modified: Tue, 19 Sep 2006 06:45:28 GMT
    md5_tag: <span class="titleHd">
    md5: '\xa1KJ\r\xd6E\x03t\x03Fl>\xc7k\xcd\x08'

The script takes that in, checks the specified tag's content, spits out an rss feed, and updates three fields in the preferences: etag, last_modified (for bandwidth-friendly conditional GETs), and md5 (fingerprint of specified tag's data).  I've got two sites so far, but now I can at least have my machine easily monitor sites that don't publish their own feeds.

    Good to "see" you checking in at LJ... and taking steps to preserve your LJ and Google+ histories!

    Even better to see "you" and not your Dead Man Switch kicking in... again.

    I "Searched" some of your archive looking for the fluorescent bulb post, but couldn't find it through 2009-02-06, and before that, LiveJournal no longer offers pages of your feed, just daily access,…

    Ha ha! How coincidental, I was thinking about light bulbs yesterday myself. One of my Instagram contacts mentioned that the EU regulates the types of light bulbs people can use in their homes in…
