Comment What I did (Score 1) 164 164

A few years back, I was trying to use Yahoo Pipes on CL feeds, since CL's search sucks pretty badly. I quickly found that it was blocked.

So, I run a cron job that wgets the RSS feeds I want, twice a day, caching them on my server. Then I refer Yahoo Pipes to that cached version.

Works well for my needs, though obviously not for something as general as this.

Am I the only one who doesn't understand the PhD obsession?

I sort of feel like it's the people with ingenuity, insight, and an ability get things done who make the greatest contribution to the US economy. Those qualities may or may not be found in a single person, and that person may or may not have a PhD.
