    Please fix RSS feed timestamps. They are set to 0 unixtime (<pubDate>Thu, 01 Jan 1970</pubDate>).

      make sure the feed is valid while you\'re there
      test with http://feedvalidator.org/

              oh something else, last time i checked the encoding in the HTTP headers doesn\'t match the encoding specified in the XML declaration
              make up your mind which one you\'re using ;)
              user agents will consider the http headers to be the correct ones, but the encoding specified should match the actual encoding used

                  Why no Project News for Sztaki on Boincstats.com ?
                  because of the (old) invalid rss-feed ?

                    because boincstats doesn\'t use SZTAKI\'s feed (see new section)

                    i\'ll ask for this to be added on the boincstats forum

                    having a valid feed will certainly help, following standards makes things easier for everyone

                          the time stamps are wrong again

                          out of the 2 recent items one was dated 2005 and the other 1970 !!

                          the feed is still served as text/xml when it should be application/xml

                            Needs to be corrected.
                            2006 is not 2005

                              You\'re right...that\'s why one shouldn\'t use copy paste...

                                well i hate to point this out, but the 2 news items posted after both nightbird and adam posted here have a date-stamp in 2005

                                so could someone kindly change the value to be this year please
                                it\'s just annoying because i have items sorted by date, so new ones appear at the top
                                but if the wrong timestamp is given, then they can appear halfway down the list, or worse, at the end of it and can easilly be missed

                                if giving a correct timestamp is proving difficult, then don\'t give one, just don\'t use the <pubDate></pubDate> element and readers will assign the date/time that they noticed/recived the item instead

                                although saying that, it\'s much better to state exactly when an item was published (and give it a GUID, but not the way SETI and others are using them, their implementation is wrong and breaks the feed) if done correctly

                                also please validate your feed to ensure that readers won\'t encounter parsing errors by using FEED Validator

                                          There is another anoying \'bug\' in the RSS feed. Some dates use \'??prilis\' instead of \'april\' and my RSS reader can\'t read this correctly. The news items are repeated over and over in my viewer and on BOINCstats because it defaults to the current date.

                                          Please change this (also for the old items) or I\'ll be forced to remove SZDG RSS news from the page again. It\'s poluting the news.

                                          Thanks in advance.

                                                I\'ve had it corrected. I don\'t know how, but the harder I try to not mix the 2 languages, the worse I do...sorry :-)

                                                  it sometimes happens with emails as well

                                                  not sure what the best solution would be for that
                                                  for web content i assume you\'re using the accept-language header
                                                  but for emails... prehaps a project specific, language preferance?
