Posting your links from del.icio.us to your blog daily

I saw that others were posting their links to their sun blog daily, but didn't know how to do it. Specifically I didn't know what URL to use, but fortunately Brandon sent me a link with the details. For Sun bloggers you use http://blogs.sun.com/roller-services/xmlrpc

Update v1: Finally got it to work, but you can't follow the directions at Delicious. For out_blog_id I just use 'wizidm' even though the directions made me think I should use '1'. I created a category called "Links", but specifying 'Links' as the out_cat_id prevented it from working. So, I left that blank and changed my Roller settings so that default entries were in category 'Links'. Not that it matters because I really only care about tags.

Update v2: Hopefully my last update. The hour you pick for out_time, which is GMT, is pretty important. It was 5:15pm CT and I wanted it to post my links at 6pm CT. Since CT is GMT-600 I had to set out_time to 0. However, this meant that it was 2007-2-28 GMT, but 2007-2-27 CT and the title of the entry reflected the GMT date. Not good. So, I can really only specify an out_time value of between 7 and 23 if I want the title to reflect the date of the post.
