    ... or am I missing something?

    I created a news autoblog by fetching rss feeds from the most important news sites. So I created a yahoo pipe that gets the rss feeds of more than 10 sites and I use it's output on my blog (I fetch the result of that output).

    The problem is that when I run on firefox the rss feed of this pipe , just to see the results, most of the times I get errors like "Connection refused". Many times it is even too slow of getting the new articles from the input rss feeds...

    What is your experience with yahoo pipes? Any tip to follow in order to avoid such problems?

    I played with it for awhile and it was really hit or miss so I left it alone and moved on. I've heard other people had more success though.

    Too bad they have made such a great service theoritically with so much problems in practice. As i read on theyir forums, they know this problems (since december 2009) and they're upgrading their service in order to fix them... But how much are we going to wait??
