I'm working on my server today, watching hit counts on various pages, and
note that there are only a couple of other servers reading our daily XML
news pages. 

It would be great if other people would use our feed, we're the first to do
it, certainly at some point Reuters or AP is going to do it, or CNN, or the
NY Times, or... We went first because we wanted to understand the
opportunity, and to help solve the chicken and egg problem.

Anyway, if you're looking for XML files to test with, we have them. 

Today's file is at:

They go back to April 1997 and will be automatically created by our content
management system as long as is operating. 

The files are updated in synch with the HTML version, usually about 10-20
times a day. We cover scripting, US politics, web development, and (of
course) XML.

I encourage other people to use this resource. Please ask questions if it's
not clear what we're doing. Let's have fun!
