Okay, so I just downloaded Awasu Personal, mostly because I got a new camera phone and discovered TextAmerica, which is pretty cool.

Only thing is, I can't seem to add Slashdot as a channel to save my life. Did a search on syndic8 and found the files (www.slashdot.org/slashdot.rdf for example) but when I try to add it, it fails to verify and basically says it's horked.

Yet when I verify the feed via syndic8, it comes up cool.

Can anyone tell me what I might be doing wrong? I'd very much appreciate any help.

P.S. I know how to enter feeds and have a bunch working already, so I think the basics are taken care of.

Can you please post the exact URL you are trying to subscribe to (it needs to have the leading http://). Also the exact error message. I've just tried subscribing to http://www.slashdot.org/slashdot.rdf and it works fine :roll:

MY bad - for some reason, Proxomitron (my ad-filter proxy program) was eating that URL while leaving everything else I had alone. I put it in the bypass list for the program and it works. Wierd!

Appreciate the help, sorry for the time-waster! Looks like a neat program with great support.

No worries. Somebody else had a problem with this proxy a while back:

Just something to keep in mind :-)
