Two days ago a bug was filed in the RSS Bandit bug tracker that claimed that Slashdot is banning RSS Bandit users because the application is acting like a Denial of Service client. The root cause of the problem is a bug in the logic for downloading favicons where the application repeatedly attempts to download favicons from each site in your subscription list if there is an error accessing or processing one of the favicons in your list of subscriptions.

We will be releasing version of RSS Bandit this weekend which remedies this problem. I plan to spend all of Saturday fixing as many bugs as I can and polishing up the Top Stories feature. We will likely ship the release sometime on Sunday. It should be noted that this release will be the first version RSS Bandit that will require version 2.0 of the Microsoft .NET Framework or later.

I’d like to apologize to everyone who has been inconvenienced by this issue. Thanks for your support and the great feedback you’ve been sending us.

Ah, those bugs are so nasty. They wipe off your name into the brassy darkworlds in which it won't find the light easiliy. Hopefully Slashdot , as well as other trackers will unbann RSS Bandit for v1.6+. :S You never know, cleaning a name is in pain.

Is it possible to run RSS Bandit on a USB stick?

Does this occur with all feeds or are there particular feeds that exhibit this problem?
