I'm on there most days and haven't had a problem, either with the site or the RSS feed.

I didn't check Saturday as I was getting married but my server gets a copy of distrowatches RSS every 60 mins and there have been no problems as far as I can see. Probably BTs fault as per usual, sounds like it could be their DNS servers as they break and forget domains quite often, they have forgotten our MX servers exsist on several occasions.

Can't afford one so we are just having time off work.

I turned it off LinuxISO because for some reason it was broken, I think I'm using the non-RSS version of the template, it is on my todo list for the site. Not planning to RSS A-Wing in the near future. I usually get RSS via Thunderbird but I also have scripts in my home server which can alert me of new items in feeds.

I know its BTs fault they know its BTs frigging fault but they wont budge....

That's BT for you. For a communications company they aren't very good at communications :)
