RSS feeds + combining multiple html into ebook?

Two things I couldn't quite figure out.

There are sophisticated text processing methods to configure rss output. But if all I want is a simple text output of one feed, all I get is a 0 KB file with nothing in it except a hyperlinked title.

To create a ebook from a simple RSS feed, all I did was create a receipe, enter the

Code:
class AdvancedUserRecipe1219035348(BasicNewsRecipe):
    title          = u'Brad Ideas'
    oldest_article = 30
    max_articles_per_feed = 100
    
    feeds          = [(u'Brad Ideas', u'http://ideas.4brad.com/node/feed')]
It's not clear to me why this isn't working. I'm not against getting my feet wet in python, but I must be missing something obvious.

Second question. I'm trying to understand what calibre does. I have 10 separate chapters in separate html files of a novel. What's the best way to get this done for sony 505? Is calibre the tool for that or is book designer?

Thanks.

The RSS error is a regression, will be fixed in next release. If you have an "index.html" file that contains link to the 10 chapter files pass that to html2lrf and all the chapters will be automatically converted.
