 Hu>> Can a python script be converted to Javascript?

 Thanks for the replies. I've Been playing with this RSS stuff all day. A lot
old information but rss IS old. I'm wondering why feeds on Synchronet have been
abandoned? Even google dumped RSS. I can't remember why. I'd like to get
everything I need in one place. It bothers me to have to go out to the web just
to get the latest headlines. I couldn't get any of the scripts I found
working. Are rss feeds still in xml? Feeds were the craze back in 06-07. What
happened? Smart Phones? I'm thinking about putting a disclaimer on my logon
screen. "Whatever you're looking for it ain't here. It's on some damn app on
the web. LOL
