RSS Assignment

Aha! Now I know why all of those impolite, unidentified aggregators were hitting my RSS feeds so often—it was assigned in a class at BYU. The course is CS462 "Enterprise and Distributed Computing." Maybe they could bring me in as a guest speaker to talk about how to block aggresive bots coming from BYU computers. ;) The assignment was to create a Java servlet that integrates Bookwatch data with Amazon Web Services queries. Of course a hip class like this has a weblog. (If you're a student from this class, I'm sorry if I blocked the multiple requests from your IP. I hope I didn't mess up any grades. I was just trying to keep the server load down.)
