My podcatcher is a publishing tool

A picture named jewWrestler.jpgI was subscribed to too many podcasts, my old podcatcher was downloading far more than I'd listen to.  Permalink to this paragraph

So when I started the project to write a new podcatcher, I decided to start with a clean slate, and go for a minimalist set, the ones I really listen to, and add slowly, and make it very easy to remove or suspend a feed.  Permalink to this paragraph

And as I announced on Tuesday, my podcatcher has a Twitter account, if you're interested in background programming while you twit the day away. Permalink to this paragraph

And yesterday I took another item off the to-do list, and came up with a public web page that shows my podcatcher's discoveries in reverse-chronologic order. Permalink to this paragraph
