RSS Support for Neengine

Yay!!! I just completed validating the RSS generated by Neengine,
therefore Neengine now had RSS Feed support. You'll notice the RSS feed
icon now if you use a real browser (*hint* Firefox).

Also, Thelda now properly mirrors to a specified blogger.com url. I'm
thinking of writing an e17 module that will call thelda and periodically
post blogs from a folder to Neengine... hmmmm... I'll see about that
(seems essienitaessien.com is becoming a technology franchise :)

Anyways, I don't think I should be repeating any RSS Howto here, so I'll
just point to some of the many fine articles available if you want to
know how to do this too:

<ul>
<li><a
href="http://www.peterfreitag.com/item/465.cfm">http://www.peterfreitag.com</a></li>
<li><a
href="http://www.kbcafe.com/rss/rssfeedstate.html">http://www.kbcafe.com/rss/rssfeedstate.html</a></li>
</ul>

The first of the links is a quick primer and you can get up and running
in no time. The second one contains some more information that is
interesting to know.

Oh, and I quickly learned that you REALLY WANT TO VALIDATE your feed.
You can do this over at <a href="http://feedvalidator.org">Feed
Validator</a>

Ok... with that out of the way, I think I to really work on the comment
spam validation next. This means, I have to implement or borrow a <a
href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Captcha">CAPTCHA</a> implementation.
That's all that's really holding Neengine back from being ready for a
v1.0 I think. Anyways, I'll have to work on that this week.

In other news, I'm beginning work on a Forums module. I will probably be
testing it here on essienitaessien.com, but its to be used in client web
communities.

Time to go clean-up the soul... aka... reading C code and possibly
refactoring.

IE version 7 also auto detects RSS feeds, so its a real browser :)b4 u think of upgradig it messes with your McAfee antivirus so you might want to consider that before upgrading
