Can't find a job (feed, that is)

Post by newshound » Mon Aug 11, 2003 12:53 am

Ok, I'm supposed to be able to use Awasu to find a job. What could be better than that? Cool.

Except that when I paste the RSS feed, which is pretty long, into Awasu, Awasu disappears. Now, I hate looking for a job too, but computers aren't supposed to express themselves this way.

then put in job search
then copy feed to the clipboard
then New Channel in Awasu
push Next
then Awasu goes AWOL.

This is the Advanced version.

Can you please post (or email me, if you'd rather) the URL you are pasting in.

OK, this is a confirmed bug :-( The problem is that the URL is too long, plus a misunderstanding on my part about how something worked. Sigh... :roll:

In the meantime, you might want to try this service: www.tinyurl.com. It converts long URL's into short ones. The URL you emailed to me works fine.
