That is helpful rtur, thanks. I'll likely be using that in my second version of the utility since i already built and tested the other one.
If anyone is interested, here's a link to my VS2010 console project. I use this exe and windows scheduled tasks to execute every morning at 4am.
It consumes an IBM DeveloperWorks RSS feed. They are served via https and it makes the process of acquiring RSS more difficult. Anyways, now that we have the RSS objects, i save them out to XML after confirming the RSS item doesn't already exist
in the app_data\posts folder. Then I append a space to the Web.config file.
Note: I have a main site with a virtual directory called "blog". This basically means i have to delete the web.config from the blog directory after moving a bunch of items to my main apps web.config. This is how I was able to
integrate the blog engine with my MVC4/Razor main app.
