Greenpoint Pipes

The Greenpoint Chess and Go Club has a neat gadget called the Combined Chess Feed. It's built using Yahoo Pipes, a technique I mentioned in Gadgets and Widgets. No, I don't think it's neat because they include Chess for All Ages in the feed. It's neat in spite of that. I can think of a half-dozen blogs that would be more suitable, but there's no accounting for taste.

Hello tom_brown_of_baltimore - Re your questions: 1) Traffic? When I look at the traffic counters that a few chess blogs use, I never see anything significant. I doubt an additional feed makes much difference. 2) No, it doesn't show up. I imagine it's an option in the Pipes configuration. - Mark
