Ever since I started the perlblog

I've wanted to track the journals on use.perl. It has been a bit of a struggle to figure out how to slurp an RSS listing for the journal index; the FAQ is incorrect and I finally had to just download the source and start grepping it. Anyway, once I got that sorted out I discovered that not only do the feed listings not contain author names, but the links simply don't work. So, I'm scraping and parsing the HTML page and generating my own RSS file, in case you're interested. The upshot of doing things this way is that I get permalinks which is something, atleast when it comes to "journal" entries, I've never been able to sort out in Slash.
