@Sampy:Agreed, sql sync sux (triggers and stuff). That's why the project I'm working on right now, first replicates the database and then put's sync on the replica.
I don't need exactly the same schema, I can live with the data that is availible now in RSS, it's just the shortness of pagesize in RSS that's bugging me. The amount of information is perfect, it would be nice to somewhere have a list of Series, Niners, Blogs, Shows and Tags.
And if you are worried about abuse, you could hand out API keys and block anyone that's abusing your layer.
And thanks for taking the time to respond
Hope you will get exited enough when I demo the thing I have in mind to think about it some more
