News feed from Sat Dec 30 00:00:00

  1. Is this a Vista compatibility issue? It shows every item in TechSpot News feed like that.

    I have always noticed our current solution that builds the RSS feed is not too sophisticated, but showing Dec 30 is definitely beyond what I had seen before going wrong.

    Please try reloading the feed in 15-20 mins and let me know if nothing changes.

    Thanks!

    I have updated some of the programming behind our XML feed which hopefully solved the date/time problem, even the previous known awkwardness :).

    Still the same. I don't know how to update the feed manually, but I tried a couple of settings and it said "loading".

    What software are you using? I tried loading the feed with a few different readers and it all came up nice.

    It's the newsfeed widget for Vista Sidebar.

    I'm going to lunch in a few minutes, I'll fire it up in Vista and see if I have the date issue.

    Edit: Nope, it is working properly here.

    Now the current news work, the old ones (starting from "Dell crafts goal of going carbon neutral") are still from Dec 30. It's probably something to do with IE7's security settings, I'm not sure, but looks like the fixes did something.
