I can't check the forums with Thunderbird, again.

Since a couple of days, I get the following message in Thunderbird when checking the forum’s feeds:

Timestamp: 15/05/12 09:11:29
Error: XML or text declaration not at start of entity
Source File: http://cycling74.com/forums/rss.php?forum=13
Line: 2, Column: 1
Source Code:
< ?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

This happen for all forums I normally check.

Seems to be the same error!
Interestingly, since I don’t have permanently refreshed c74 feeds on my second screen I have much more time to work ;-)

I wrote to support about this, but no answer yet (beside the automatic one).

Hi all,

We’ve been looking into the issue. Thanks for your patience.

It seems to be working for me now, but can you guys confirm for us?
