can we save rss feeds on our pc ?

hello all ,

1- i am new to rss feeds and my question is it possible to make my computer to save rss feeds for 5 days or more while i am away so i can check it after i come back ?

2- is there an rss archive . i mean is it possible to go back and check for last december engadget news as an rss feed ( i know i can check their old news from their website ) but i mean as an rss feed ?

i am asking these questions because i am using rss2book software to read rsss feeds on my sony reader .

thanks .

RSS is just an XML file so yes you can store them easily, but they're not really made for archives, RSS is more or less used as a "presentation agnostic tool" to stay up to date.

Anyone could easily make an app or a website that would work as an archive for RSS feeds, I'm just not sure that there's a point for this (or maybe there is, RSS feeds for example are really easy to filter using reg exp, so if you need to make a search for example, it's pretty easy). The best option would be a REST service for such a thing...

You can keep the generated files from rss2book on your PC. There are two few other issues standing in your way:

- rss2book requires you to manually click Go to start its work
- the file names are not date stamped

These are both pretty easy to address. However, having addressed them, they introduce the complication that rss2book expects to sync the latest documents to the reader, not documents from an archive. If you would be sitisfied with using the Connect software for that, then I can address the first two issues.
