DZone Links Aggregator for Web Development on LAMP and AJAX

Hey, I am not interested in your story, Subscribe me to the feed straightaway.

1) Irrelevant result for all links
I was subscribed to the DZone recent links to the feeds at http://dzone.com/links/feed/frontpage/rss.xml and my Google reader was getting flooded with new items every few minutes and I was noticing that I was getting items which aren't relevant to me.

2) Subscribe to the Tags by visiting individual pages for each tags and subscribe to them:
Hence I tried to find a way to subscribe to each tag that I am interested in php, javascript and subscribed to them. But the Problem here is that if two links are submitted for both of the tags in my list I get repetitive entries...

3) Yahoo Pipes to the rescue.
I created a new Pipe in Yahoo Pipes with the following components in it.

A) A Feed fetcher which fetches the following feeds:
http://dzone.com/links/feed/frontpage/php/rss.xml
http://dzone.com/links/feed/frontpage/javascript/rss.xml
http://dzone.com/links/feed/frontpage/javascript/rss.xml
http://dzone.com/links/feed/frontpage/ajax/rss.xml
http://dzone.com/links/feed/frontpage/web%202.0/rss.xml
http://dzone.com/links/feed/frontpage/web%20design/rss.xml
http://dzone.com/links/feed/frontpage/css-html/rss.xml

B) The output is fed into an Operator Unique which filters non unique items based on item.link

C) The output of B is fed into an Operator Sort which sorts the item by item.pubDate on Descending Order.

The out put of the C is what you get in the feed at

There are other similar attempts and a list of that can be found at http://pipes.yahoo.com/pipes/search?q=dzone

Please write in the Comments if you feel any other tags from DZone should be included here. Or any other thought to make it more useful.
