Aarrgh! RSS Feed broken... (4 posts)

    My WP-powered blog has been up and running for a few weeks now and up until recently had been spitting out RSS without problems - http://www.bensaunders.com/wordpress/wp-rss2.php
    I use Sharpreader (http://www.sharpreader.net/) and my feed (which validates) is now throwing up the error 'Error reading URL: The underlying connection was closed: The server committed an HTTP protocol violation. '
    Any thoughts?

    I just went through something similar of this yesterday:
    That'll fix WordPress so the RSS feed is valid.
    As for Sharpreader, I get the same error you do on one machine, but a Sharpreader on an identical machine reads it fine. I'm convinced it's a Sharpreader problem, not WordPress.

    Weird. I'm using Feedreader now (works beautifully) - http://www.feedreader.com/ - but I still wonder why Sharpreader 'broke'.
    I believe Sharpreader uses Microsoft .NET, and I installed XP SP2 just before it all went wrong - I suspect the two are connected.
    Odd that my feed was the only one that stopped working, though...

    Using Sharpreader here and your feed works fine. Machine is XP SP1. Sharpreader version
