Re: More flexibility in the deletion of feed with errors

...so that you don't display channels that have already been deleted in the current session. That's why I started deleting the .CHANNEL files. I noticed that while the call to the Awasu API worked in deleting the Channel from Awasu, if you immediately ran the script again it would list the same Cha...

Re: More flexibility in the deletion of feed with errors

The threshold for no recent content the Clean-up channels dialog uses can be configured by opening your CONFIG.INI file and changing the NoRecentContentInterval value (number of days). Wow, as much as I've learned about Awasu, I still have a lot to learn. Sorry Guys I've had this sitting tin my Dra...

Re: feeds all in red!

I know I'm late to this party, but I'll just add that using a local HTTP Proxy like Fiddler will allow you to see the http requests/responses that Awasu sends when you update a Channel: Here's a successful request/response: GET http://feeds.feedburner.com/oreilly/ebookdealoftheday?format=xml HTTP/1....

Re: Server status

I agree that sending a request and to $/buildInfo is the best way to determine if the Awasu API is available. FWIW there are ways to tell if Awasu is running on a specific PC/Server. The example below uses Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) to determine if an execuatble named "awasu.exe&q...

Re: Automatically downloading URL's found in a feed

American Football... Go Niners ! Interesting isn't the word I'd use for it - I think it's an abomination I couldn't agree more. XSLT is a necessary evil, and "necessary" only when you absolutely must use it. I glad you figured this out; I was just taking a stab at it modifying a copy of th...

Re: Post Processing Open Command

IIRC we had some issue(s) with running a batch file as a "post-processing command", but I think it had to do with passing parameters into the batch file. I know I have the conversation archived, so I may be able to dig it up and summarize it here. From my memory, I think we never resolved ...

Re: Posting to Twitter

On a related note, the many recent changes to "Google Reader" is going to cause the creator of the "demonic" feed reader a lot of headache. Just about a year ago he re-wrote everything to work really closely with ( a few too ) many of the Google Reader's features, now he's going ...

Re: urls rewriting

Great idea! Wish I'd thought of it Google News feeds do this same type of thing where all links are first routed to Google so they can track your clicks. ( I'm no expert, but... ) The XSLT file below should work for the example URLs that you ( manuel ) provided as well Google News feeds since both p...

Re: Help! I've screwed up my Awasu installation!

Ok I got it working. I restored both my local data and my roaming data directories and I'm back in business. The lifesaver in this case is that I had a recent backup to restore from. If anybody is interested, you can define "Jobs" in WinZip. This XML-format job is from WinZip 15.x while ea...

Help! I've screwed up my Awasu installation!

My thumb drive crashed 2 weeks ago and I was lucky enough to quickly RMA it (thanks Patriot Memory ). I had a portable Awasu installation on that thumb drive and today I started the process of trying to set it up again, but I accidentally moved instead of copied my entire local data directory from m...

I guess you know about Phonegap , kind of a cross-compiler for several mobile OSs. Most notably missing is Windows Phone 7, but there are some efforts to change that: ⋅  https://github.com/phonegap/phonegap-wp7 ⋅  https://github.com/mrlacey/phonegap-wp7 ⋅  https://githu...
