google must be able to properly crawl the link at all times.


also, server caching should generally be

turned off for feeds -- or handled adroitly.

intermittently, that server seems to be returning the following --

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
<title>200 No content. Please go to </title>
<h1>Error 200 No content. Please go to </h1>
<p>No content. Please go to </p>
