Holding the tail of a wild animal

Podcasting and the Podcasting Directory I’ve built. This evening I had 89 podcasts and about 300 different shows, but I finally got my OPML parser to work and the number of feeds shot up to 212 and the number of shows topped 1,000. Then all hell broke loose. Many of the feeds were dupilcate, some of the RSS was improperly coded. There were HTML files mixed in with the XML (crashing the parser) and all sorts of other problems. I ended up erasing all the updates I made and then hand cleaning the directory back to 140 feeds and running the parser again. Now it is at 153 feeds and 1100 different shows. And I’ve yet to find the time to actually listen to the podcasts I’ve downloaded, but at least the directory is up and running.]]>
