Yahoo Pipes web service implements pagination to its feeds in blocks of 100 !

Recently was working on a project to combine RSS feeds from multiple sources and display the latest news. To combine the RSS feeds i used Yahoo Pipes web service as it was very easy to configure, maintain and for scalability. Unfortunately the combined feed was displaying only top 100 posts, whereas my combined feed was more than 100 ! After a head scratching search in the internet, i got to find a solution at a Blog.
To my frustration, i found Yahoo Pipes web service has added a pagination to its feeds in blocks of 100. So to navigate to the next 100 posts,the feed url should be of like below with parameter “page=2″ at the end :
The frustration gets added, if your feed count is actually 500, then you need to navigate 5 times to see the complete nodes of your feed !
This is really Bad ! But is there any alternative ?
