Fun With Ruby

so seeing louis's aggregator made me want to play with it, but my scheme is pretty weak, so i started hacking on my own in ruby.

it's coming along. it grabs rss files, parses them and extracts the useful information, then outputs them as html. i need to make the formatting better and provide a way to cache downloaded output so that it doesn't try to download a new version each time it's called, but it's making progress, and it gives me an excuse to play with ruby, which is always fun.
