Diggnation and Tekzilla RSS feeds WAIX mirror

I setup up a couple of customized RSS feeds for Diggnation and Tekzilla that replaced the revision3 URL with 3fl.net.au’s URL for the video download source URLs. 3FL is on WAIX so Western Australians connecting via ISPs with WAIX quota will be able to enjoy Veronica Belmont and Diggnation in free traffic.

The 3FL feed URLs are as follows

  1. http://feeds.feedburner.com/DiggnationOn3FL
  2. http://feeds.feedburner.com/TekzillaOn3FL

If you find that the files are not available via the feed, its because 3FL has yet to mirror the file and there’s nothing much I can do until they download the file.

Essentially, they are the same HD versions you find on 3FL’s download page.
Hope someone else finds this just as useful and many thanks to 3FL for mirroring the files and saving me lots of download quota!

While it has a couple of dictionaries available separately via the marketplace, the cool thing about this app is that it supports any dictionaries in the open source StarDict format which means you can install any of the dictionaries in this list.

The problem is the installation of the custom dictionaries isn’t very clear so heres how I did it.
