schestowitz[TR]> I've checked a few backups.  It's probably necessary to reconstruct the Jan 28 08:34
schestowitz[TR]> script.  What did it do?Jan 28 08:34
schestowitz[TR]It went through some linux sites like gamingonlinux as per the file in git and then extracted from them a ready-to-post set, like "merged"Jan 28 08:34
schestowitz[TR]This script is from this past summer. Some sites did not keep compatibility anyway, maybe time to automate some more, using the opml files? I reckon we can write a lot more if some of the feeds are processed in this way, at least some.Jan 28 08:34

schestowitz[TR]                                        <p>Having written a manuscript I went about tying to get it published. The common approach in most countries is that first you have to pitch your manuscript to a literary agent, and if you succeed, they will then try to pitch it to publishers. In Finland the the procedure is simpler, anyone can submit their manuscripts directly to book publishing houses without a middle man. While this makes tJan 28 13:47
schestowitz[TR]hings easier, it does not help with deciding how much the manuscript should be polished before submission. The more you polish the bigger your chances of getting published, but the longer it takes and the more work you have to do if the publisher wants to make changes to the content.</p>Jan 28 13:47
