Telegraph UK

I find that the UK Telegraph ebook often makes my Kindle 2 reboot, or cannot be opened, but this is not always the case. Other news feeds (South China morning post, Economist, Le Monde, Irish Times) all work fine with no glitches. Using 0.9.32 64bit in Windows 7, and the default recipes that come with Calibre. Reader a Kindle 2 (s/nbr starts B0003). If I convert the book and explode it and delete the TOC at the front it seems to work but does not then behave as a periodical and has no "View Section List" button at the bottom of pages, and doesn't get moved into the old periodical section. Anyone seen this, or better yet have an idea what to do about it?
Thanks

It's probably too big for your device. You can customize the recipe and remove some sections tat you dont read, that might fix it.

Found a recipe in the forum which doesn't download pictures which seems to work. Thanks for your quick response. Any idea what the size limit is on a Kindle 2?

    oldest_article = 2
    max_articles_per_feed = 20
    no_stylesheets        = True
    use_embedded_content  = False
 

    keep_only_tags = [dict(name='div', attrs={'class':'story'})]

    remove_tags  = [dict(name='div', attrs={'class':'slideshow'})]
 
   
    feeds          = [(u'Top News', u'http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/majornews/rss')
