For those not in the know, a Podcast is an RSS-based feed that is monitored by a program, such as iPodder. The program then downloads the audio files whenever they are updated. This is particularly handy if you use an iPod, as is my case. Whenever I sync my ‘Pod, it automatically downloads any new podcasts I have.
So, UPC posts the an audio file of the Sunday sermon sometime on Monday. I want to listen to these sermons, but often forget to download them. However, UPC doesn’t have a podcast feed setup…yet. So I crafted one. It’s actually pretty cool. Every Tuesday, at 12:00AM Pacific Time the server runs script that creates an entry for the previous Sunday. The file is then downloaded and the ID3 data is extracted and saved in a text file. The RSS file is built and saved, free for anyone, but primarily for me, to use. Enjoy another wonder, and perhaps even useful service from Andrew Ferguson dot NET and the folks (i.e. Me) at Fergcorp!
