A reader just let me know that my repackaged Digg feed recently stopped working.
I’ve written about making Beautiful Soup even more tolerant before. Shortly after I posted that information, Leonard Richardson explained why Beautiful Soup 3.1 was failing on malformed pages. Rather than hack around with the parsing infrastructure as I had done before, I’ve just taken his advice and downgraded to Beautiful Soup version 3.0.7a.
The digg-direct feed should now be working again. Apologies for the outage.
