A way to password protect rss feeds

I've taken a quick dive into the world of password protection for rss feeds. My first attempt was simply to see if it could be done.

My end result is not that amazing, but now I know at least I know it's possible. However, there's a long way to go before it's of any use to anyone. In the long run, I'd like to see this as something that can be used to manage a subscription based blog or podcast.

Let me know what you think

Google Keyword Search Counts Tool

For the past few weeks I've been working on a Google keyword estimate tool. The main reason for developing this was to get comfortable with the new Google AdWords API that was just recently released.

As I started playing around with the code, I realized that I could actually turn this into a useful tool that I could use to speed up my keyword research process.

After some testing, I felt it was finally good enough to share with others. However, I've limited the functionality a bit. So right now, users can only enter one keyword at a time. The version I use allows me to upload my keywords in bulk, and have the processed results emailed to me in CSV format. I then use excel to slice and dice the data help me decide what course of action to take.
The version that I currently have

You may have already had a chance to check out this keyword tool. But if you haven't seen it yet, please take a look. I'd like to hear what you think about it.
