RSS Progress

I am still working on my RSS writer. As I mentioned earlier, I am trying to write it using PHP/MYSQL. It is certainly a learning experience. I thought that it would be a simple project that could be wrapped up in a couple of hours. This is giving me a lot of respect for those people who write their own content management systems. There is a lot more to it than what the user sees on the screen. Today was my first experience with HTTP sessions. I have a lot to learn. I do wonder, if I was working on this project in a different language such as JSP or .NET would it be easier? PHP/MYSQL just seemed easiest to get up and running, oh, and it is what my hosting company has. Anyway, this weekend I got the installer, login, registration, and logout done. It doesn’t sound like much, I know, but really there is a lot more to that than what meets the eye.
