    Hi,

    I'm looking for a script I could run on my server to randomize feeds. What it needs to to:

    1. Let me input as many RSS feeds as I need
    2. Mix the feeds and output a new one with X* number of randomized articles on it.

    I want to be able to set the number of articles the new feed will show from the original feeds. Also, it needs to be able to set a time interval in which it won't display any article. Let's say it grabs de feeds and creates a new randomize one, but in randomized times, between 1 and 5 hours top. And last, it needs to have "silen times", so i won't work from 00.00 to 08.00 (for instance).

    Example:

    1. Grab feed 1, 2 and 3, which contains articles A1,A2, B1, B2, C1, C2
    2. Mix all of them randomly and output a new RSS feed at 8.00 AM: Feed 4 with articles A2, B2, C1, A1...
    3. After 1 hour (or random time between 1 to 5 hours) it does step 2 again, randomizing feeds again.
    4. After X hours (X should be between 1 and 5) go to step 2 again.

    I will add this new feed to Twitterfeed to post random articles at random times to Twitter.

    Sorry about my poor explanation. PM me for more details or estimates.

    Thanks

    No idea, since I don't know wether it would take minutes, hours or days... Give me a quote ;-)
