Independent newspaper UK - now too big download?!

Hi,

I've been using for the last few months without problem the recipe to get The Independent newspaper (English UK) -- successfully downloading and converting to epub daily.

On average it takes me about 10-15 minutes and the file size is usually around 5 to 10 mb. But...

Just yesterday and today, the downloading of the feed and compilation of the epub takes upwards 3 hours! - something definitely wrong, and the file size is so big, 170 mb! that I can't even open the epub file to see what's in there.

Can anyone confirm that it's the Independent's website that's causing the problem recently, and not the recipe, or could it be something I'm suddenly doing wrong? (I don't know anything about coding recipes, btw)

(I'm using Calibre 0.9.23, reverted back to it as a test, but latest version seems to have the same problem, so likely not a calibre version problem.)
Thanks!

That website must have started serving high resolution images. The recipe probably needs to be modified to rescale those images to smaller sizes or just not download them in the first place.

Thank you for the response. I'll look into that and see what I can figure out.

For some reason the recipe now seems to be working again -- maybe the paper is fiddling with their newfeed or something? Anyway, thanks again.

That's because I modified the recipe to compress the high res images.
