xkcd seems to have broken sometime in the past few days. Thanks!

Dammit!
Now the feeds have gone https, which helps stop locking onto them.
I have no idea on how to fix them, unless someone can direct me to a mirror

I'm not sure how correct this is, but what if we use rss feeds created by third parties like fetchrss.com and the like? I made one for xkcd, as an example: http://fetchrss.com/rss/5caec4e48a93f891308b45675caec8e28a93f810588b4567.xml
Here's another for Perry Bible Fellowship: http://fetchrss.com/rss/5caec4e48a93f891308b45675caec7478a93f826478b4567.xml

Seems like it. Free RSSs from fetchrss.com only update one every 24 hours, so it can take as long as a day to proc, but better late than never, right? I'll see if I can start making them for a few more broken comics, but I'll probably have to make a bunch more accounts since they only let you have 5 in total without paying. Still, that's what stuff like 10minutemail.com exists for.

looks like we spoke too soon, we're getting false positives. I don't see anything wrong in the xml, though, maybe the channel pubDate?
