Hi All

For anyone who tried to use my attempt at an accessible RSS aggregator 
and gave up in disgust, I have fixed some bugs which were generating 
inaccessible error messages...

* Increased timeout for feed retrieval
* Report feeds that cannot be retrieved rather than dying
* Report XML validation errors rather than dying

(Note that these were all to cope with problems with the feeds themselves.)

The software has been moved from my private page to its proper project 
page and may be found at <http://www.websticky.net/aggiegpl/aggie.pl>  I 
have put a 301 redirect on the old URI since references to it exist here 
and there.

Please feel free to play with this and comment; the code will be posted 
on the project site under the GPL when I decide that it's "good enough". 
  So far, testing has been performed with Firefox, Konqueror, Opera, 
Lynx and IE6.
