RSS Feed Busted Again...

See if you can spot the subtle error in the XML Syntax:

Connection Failure

That's what the feed URL is currently returning.

Does this explain why BlogLines keeps telling us it has a problem?

I mean, that's not a 404. If BlogLines got a 404, then it wouldn't be complaining about the feed being invalid.

Firefox reports it's being served up a document of type application/xml, UTF-8 encoding, etc. So it's sending back one line of text where there should be a feed.

Maybe this is a new thing, but if not, it explains a lot.

The feeds are all fine now. What you see is every once in a while the rss file is created but dies at some point before the flat file is written. I need to add some code to check for a fail before anything gets written to disk, but whenever someone makes a new post, the RSS file is rewritten again, so I see both mefi and ask mefi look fine now.
