Feed for Aamir Khan’s Blog

I am scrapping the html of Aamir Khan's blog to create feed. I am using feedburner to reduce the load on my server. The scrapping script isn't perfect yet. It doesn't show date properly and doesn't show number of comments. I am working on it will fix it very soon.

As of now its a partial content feed. It will remain partial until Aamir makes his blog creative commons compliant. The scrapping script runs once per day. I will increase the frequency once it becomes almost perfect :)

Update MAr 09 2009 : Updated to use YQL, Read RSS Feed for Aamir Khan’s blog using YQL and Pipes for more details. Its much better now. You don't have to worry about subscribing again. Just the process behind has become better that is it. If you have not subscribe yet. What are you waiting for? go subscribe http://feeds.feedburner.com/aamirkhan

    Dear Amir
    Saw 3 idiots . Its an excellent movie revolutionising Indian cinema as you have always been doing Your powerful screen presence along with other factors have made it a feast for movie goers but I have a complain. I have lot of regards for you as a human being and as an actor but I failed to understand why your team and you are reluctant to give due credit to the author of the book on which you have created a history. i request you to go through the book and give due credit to the author.
