Hi,

I am new to Python. I'm not sure if the problem I am experiencing is
due to my Python inexperience or due to the way that Google App Engine
operates.

I have created a simple "feed ticker" application using Mark Pilgrim's
Universal Feed Parser and a little bit of script.aculo.us. It kinda
works:

http://feed-ticker.appspot.com/

but I was hoping that I would be able to pass the feed as a parameter
to the script but the default url seems to persist, e.g.:

http://feed-ticker.appspot.com/?feed=http://itn.co.uk/rss/index.rss

keeps displaying my default BBC feed. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks,

Mark
