A new project that I have been working on looking to bring together anyone making use of rss feeds in the north east. A slightly odd idea perhaps, but one that has me playing with collecting and caching feeds from other sites and a bit of minimal design. Visit for the work in progress


email2rss is one of my php projects. The aim is to allow simple access to rss feeds from any email client. Ideally suited to mobile devices without a reader or to less technical users.

It makes use of the lastRSS library to read external rss feeds and output the details, as well as a few tricks to read in an email (from stdin) sent to its own address and to email back the user with the news requested in the subject line.

Visit for more details. is a current project I maintain for the local web design and development community, centered around an email mailing list.

Although still a small community its proving a useful place to bounce ideas and get a feel for whats going on and hopefully will grow over time.

Visit and join in.


php-eml is a sourceforge open source project I started a while back to develop a php based email mailing list. At the moment this in at a stage where it works but is not really pretty or easy to install unless you enjoy a little sysadmin.

Both these, and some new features should be added in the future, time permitting.
