Why can't you consistently get the RSS feed right?!?! it will work in my podcatcher for a few weeks then it stops downloading. In a couple of weeks it starts again.

If you look at a CORRECT RSS XML page in firefox you should see a nicely formatted page. Yours looks like shit when it is not working. Check out ANY of the Twit Shows (TWICH?). That is how it is supposed to be formatted.

What is so hard about doing it right CONSISTENTLY?

We check our feeds in iTunes and they CONSISTENTLY work. We can't possibly check with every podcatcher.

What Ken said. It works in iTunes and in the Zune software so we are pretty sure we have the syntax mostly correct.

I understand your comments though - our page does look slightly different and we are going to start using some different software to manage it coming up soon.

Another interesting note: in Internet Explorer, the RSS feed does show up just fine with the "RSS Formatting".

Did you ever use a WP or even seen WP 7.5 before?
Not a big fan of M$, but there new WP 7.5 rocks

O have a Lumia 800 and not ever owned a iPart (hate the company now(*), but they make nice looking products), me and my daughter (how dose own a lot of iCrap), compared phones.
(*) My first PC was a Apple II, and also owned a Macintosh for a wile.

After some hefty debating, she admitted that WP was the better OS, whit mouths better integration, and easier to learn.

After using Galaxy S for 2y, I now have a Lumia 800, and really like it a lot more then Android 2.3, and after the comparison with the 4S, i also like WP7.5 way more then iOS 5.

Anyone saying that WP is no competition to iOS or Android, has clearly never used it, because i would say WP made a leap forwards wit its mobile OS, and "I" think MS is at least 2y ahead of its competition.

And when WP8 come's out i properly gone buy a phone like the Lumia 900, and give mine 800 to my wife, and even my daughter, a big Apple fan, is at least considering a WP model for her next buy.

I have not, having no cellphone has limited the amount of phone OSes I have seen to almost none ... well except for Win 8.
