*bump*

Is there anyone that can decipher the error message?

I thought about trying to refresh the news feeds that are available in calibre but I don't see a way to do that. Can this be done?

It looks like the layout of the Gamespot web site changed and the original RSS links no longer exist.

Thanks for explaining the issue to me. So how would I go about removing that from the list of newsfeeds in calibre? Where does calibre get the feeds from? I'm sure I have many items listed that no longer work or have been modified.
