Merge planet feeds & remove duplicates

Problem: I like Debian Planet. I like Ubuntu Planet. I do not like reading the same posts twice though. And there are blogs that are syndicated on both. Yahoo! created Pipes , which is like normal shell pipe but for online / web data. One of templates/examples of Yahoo! Pipes is:  Merge RSS and remove duplicates After putting in Debian and Ubuntu planets into the template we get an RSS subscription Link for both planets we get this awesome feed: Ubuntu & Debian Planet Feed Still need to experiment with it though, not sure how real time it is and whether it will fail to de-duplicate some blogs. Hope you like this =)
