Journal Journal: Slashdotometer: measuring Slashdot news temperature

After succesfully testing a spanish version for the spanish /. Barrapunto, let me introduce you to the Slashdotometer, a page that processes current and last slashdot XML file, and assigns temperature to each news item depending on the number of new comments; hot topics have many new comments, and appear in red, cold topics have no new comments, and appear in blue.
