Feedburner is not update my RSS ? URL read time out?

I just notice Feedburner is not update my RSS feed recently, wonder what may causing this problem?

Feed details


1) Read URL time out

In the Google Feedburner, i received a “Read URL time out” error while trying to update my RSS feed.

2) Server returned timed out

When i try validate my feed in feedvalidator.org, i received a “Server returned timed out” error

Is this really a time out issue?

All signal stated this is a time out issue. However , the feed is display correctly in Firefox browser. Is this really a time out issue? Try all the suggestions in Feedburner’s “Troubleshootize” tab, but it’s just won’t work.


After trial and error, i find out the problem is causing by one of my regular expression article which contains many weird characters like “<! #” . Google Feedburner seems has problem to render it properly and causing the time out error, what i did is exclude the article in my RSS feed, and the feedburner is updating my feed and working properly again.
