You Get What You Pay For

Some of our subscribers may have noticed some issues with our feed. Currently it’s not working at all. Because we’re using a free service there’s not much we can do about it other than ask them to fix it and hope they have time. We were already working on a fix with a modest investment, but unfortunately it’s not ready yet. We hope to have a permanent solution within a week.
