Just before I headed up to Web Directions North, I wrote a little chunk of code to help me do a system back up. Enough people at work have been losing data on their hard disks, so I decided I wasn't going to have that happen to me. I picked up a NAS storage device, 2 500gig hard drives, and got it all set up at home. It works quite nicely. I set up SyncToy to back up all the data that I find important, and run daily or weekly.
But one thing was not getting back up that I was a bit worried about. My RSS feed list. I couldn't find where the RSS platform stores the OPML list, or even if it does, so I figured, since it's an open platform, I'd just write a method that would create the OPML list for me! Once I got the initial work done, it was really easy.
So, I figured I'd share the code. This code will return a string, that is the OPML list of all the feeds that you've subscribed to using the RSS Platform. Sure you can just go into IE, and choose File/Export, but that's a manual process, I wanted something automatic.
public string Result
sbResult = new StringBuilder();
