It looks like my problems are more commons than not. The “fix” as it stands is to remove the tidy references from your RssModel.php. Here’s the bug on Google Code http://code.google.com/p/storytlr/issues/detail?id=1#c6
I’ve seen this sort of thing before, and wanted to put one together eventually, so today I bit the bullet and just did it. It was super easy, and Storytlr is a nice piece of software.
I hit a few bumps (for instance, the RSS feed for this site isn’t importing yet) but in general it pulls, stores and presents my feeds in a clean and readable fashion.
I’m under no illusion that anyone will really ever visit http://lifestream.velvetcache.org/, but it makes me happy and it adds another bit of knowledge and experience to the corral.
