Feed Problem

Is this site having a feed problem?  I recommend people use the feedburner feed that is linked on the right side, but I have had two people email me to tell me my RSS feed is empty.  I have no problem reading it in google reader.  If anyone can help me with more details, that would be great.

I'm good in Google Reader also. Did they mention what reader they were using?

I use Live Bookmarks in Firefox, and it hasn't been working for me for the last week or so. It tells me it failed to load.

THe Sage extension in Firefox no longer picks your site up.

The http://feeds.feedburner.com/CoyoteBlog link generates an xml error in MSIE 7.0 that an invalid character was found at line 346 character 222.

I use Google Reader as well, and I notice that your previous entry did not appear in my feed.

Confirmed, Firefox Beta ain't loading - last post it can access is Tort Reform in MS.

I'm using Safari's (3.1.1.) built-in RSS reader, and both feeds (Atom and RSS) seem to be working just fine, assuming there are supposed to be 54 entries.

The feed from feedburner has a problem for some newsreaders (Linux Lifrea for me)

Entity: line 346:

error :
PCDATA invalid Char value 3

There was some strange behavior via Google Reader earlier today -- (title not found) + Feeds from one site showing up as feeds from aother - but nothing I've noted directly impacting Coyote.

At times I find that Google Reader staff is futzing about in the background without notifying anybody. And since they own feedburner something could be fubar there too.

Here's a link to the Google Group where users post "Something is broken" notices:

I use the Linux Feed Reader (liferea) and this is what I am getting.

I'm reading you with Google Reader and it works all right - don't know whether that comes from Feedburner or not.

Oh, I forgot something: it's unlikely on the internet but there is a small chance it might be related to the location of the reader. I'm in the UK.

FeedDemon is getting http://www.coyoteblog.com/coyote_blog/index.rdf just fine

I used whatever the first option is in Firefox (installed last summer, whatever was available then) -- I have also been having issues.

I'm in MA.
