pitfall of having news on the reader

I just downloaded the newer version of libprs500 and installed it on my machine. To my surprise there's now The Economist and NY Times Book Reviews to download. So of course I downloaded the data and put it onto my reader. I opened The Economist and saw an article that I really wanted to read. Unfortunately the pitfalls of electronic data is that sometimes all the data doesn't come down and you're left with a blank screen when you want to read the article, such as what I ran into. Bummer. I'll try deleting The Economist off my reader and redownload the data and put it back and see if that helps. It's just a little disappointing not being able to read the story right away. I even checked their website and the story doesn't even exist.

You should also know that the economist articles are abstracts, not the full articles, as I don't have an economist subscription so can't develop the code for the full articles.
