For the last couple of weeks(ish?), the RSS feed isn't working for me - http://www.pocketgpsworld.com/speed-camera-rss.php

Neither in Firefox or pRSS Reader for WM6.

Is it you or me?

Cheers.

Wasn't this discussed before but fizzled out?

RSS Owl 2.0 standalone reader same here.

The last feed I got for this was 18th Dec 2008 22:17, and that came as a bit of a surprise. Its been iffy ages for me.

The other 14 feeds I watch work OK.

Using FF v3.0.5 if you attempt to subscribe using live bookmareks it gives, as you say, the failed to load error.

If I attempt to subscribe using Feedreader it subscribes me to the main news page http://www.pocketgpsworld.com/backend.php

If I enter the http://www.pocketgpsworld.com/speed-camera-rss.php direct into my newsreader (Feedreader) then all is ok.

Also mentioined in this thread

I'll ask that this be looked into. It works for me but I'm on a Mac and have no easy way of testing it on Windows systems.

I think it's the link in the description "This first release of 2009 sees..." The ampersands in the URL are not encoded. IE7 can't add it as a feed and if I save the feed as an XML file, IE won't open it, complaining about missing semicolons. If I encode the url by hand (& goes to &) then it loads just fine.

Given the posting date, this is also consistent with it not working "for the last couple of weeks" as mentioned earlier.
