What would be interesting is if caching was somehow incorporated, so if
the feed is unavailable, it would use x number of posts from a local feed- maybe tied to an XML file or database.

The question is just how often it caches it. For our purposes once a day is fine, but maybe people with more traffic would want a setting property - hourly daily etc.

A property to enable / disable caching, a property to set # of cached items to display, and probably using an XML is the easiest and simplest way so also a property to set the caching subdir.

Only semi complex I can see may be trouble keeping formatting as the posts are stored and restored from the XML file, and maybe trouble with unusual characters and/or unicode etc.
