I need to parse about 50 RSS feeds and display the latest posts from
each
sorted by post date.  Right now I have a cron job calling a rake task
saving
the feeds locally every 5 minutes then I'm using simple-rss to do the
parsing.  Even though the posts are local its still very slow to parse
and
display all of them.  Anyone have any other recommend approaches
(caching,
etc) that might improve this?  I'd say an ideal refresh time would be
about
5 minutes

Thanks!
