Woohoo! All I can say is, I can't wait. I've been using FD to grab pointers to new torrents via tvtorrents, suprnova, etc. and have even played around w/ Azureus' RSS plugin that can monitor feeds using regular expressions and auto-download. But, I prefer to have FD do the monitoring for a number of reasons. It wouldn't even have to enclose the torrent, just be capable of filtering and then automatically passing filtered items to Azureus or any BitTorrent client. Any way to do this? Either way, I'm excited. You're always on the cutting edge, and we appreciate it!

You wouldn't happen to now about a quick script or other thing to generate an RSS file with enclosures? I post a "Song of the Week" on my blog (well, more like "song of the random time period until I remember to post a new one"), and I've been meaning to have a look at this newfangled podcasting thingamajic.

I'd prefer to have a separate RSS feed for the 'casting, though, and I'd rather not reinvent the weel if someone else already did it.

After some searching I found this: http://www.tdscripts.com/webmaster_utilities/podcast-generator.php which can generate an initial RSS file that you can then hand-craft to add more items. It's a start, at least.

Have you been following the discussions on [ipodder-dev] regarding this? Seems it would be a good idea to coordinate with iPodder and iPodderX along these lines.

Nick - You need a way for people to contact you by email from your topstyle site. I cannot register and cannot contact you through any way other than this.

Jim, at the bottom of almost every page in my site is a "Contact us" link. I use a contact form rather than a direct "mailto:" link since that way I can make sure that the message gets through my spam filter.

This is a great idea, Nick. I've been wanting to make a podcasting feed available on my site, but the bandwidth was a concern. Seems like a perfect marriage with BitTorrent.
