Problems with the driver blogs on the front page

As some of the bloggers probably have seen there are some issues with the latest blog posts published on the front page. Some blog posts are disappearing, returning, disappearing and then returning again. I’m using Yahoo Pipes to merge all the different driver blog feeds into one to publish them on the front page at Driver Database and for some reason it decides not to fetch all posts every once in a while. The most probable thing is that that particular feed is not responding quickly enough when Yahoo Pipes updates its feed and it therefor decides to skip them. As the Yahoo Pipes feed is using cached data and only updates when the moon is in the right position and all the stars align it might take a while for new posts to appear and for previously disappeared posts to reappear.

If anyone can point me to a better alternative than Yahoo Pipes I’d be very grateful! :)
