Original free fiction feed seems ok now

Ref: See my note earlier in the day.

It's working, but not due to anything I can comprehend. I just removed two source feeds that no longer work:

  1. Oddlands magazine that shut shop last month, &
  2. Heliotrope magazine that seems to have switched off its feed. Last issue on their site was #4 (Spring 2008). I'm not sure if they've folded up. Am now watching their new issue announcements via SF Scope.
Last changes made a few days back that I was suspecting as cause seem to be harmless - a minor bug fix that helps recognize more fiction from Subterranean, & dropping Arcane Twilight magazine from watch list (some squatter is now sitting at their website).

For the moment, I'm keeping my fingers crossed. It's working at the moment. Let's see how it goes now.

Heliotrope Switched CMS from Drupal to Wordpress so our feed actually changed. New feed is Let me know if you have any problems with that.

I'll include the new Heliotrope feed when I next update the source. Thanks.

PS: New feed is empty at present. I suppose that is intentional?

Yeah no new content until the next issue is out which should be about a month or so coming.
