Problems with SDN RSS Feed - part 1

Hi all, this is the first question I have regarding the SDN RSS Feed and it's processing. I have followed Brian's weblog 'RSS = HttpClient + XML + XSLT' (link: /people/brian.mckellar/blog/2004/06/25/bsp-programming-rss-httpclient-xml-xslt). When testing this example I run into a problem when executing the following commands:

node = element->find_from_name( name = 'creator' ).

<blog>-creator = node->get_value( ).

node = element->find_from_name( name = 'date' ).

<blog>-date = node->get_value( ).

Both values seem to be empty resulting in a HTTP_COMMUNICATION_FAILURE. When I comment these lines out the example runs correctly. Checking the actual RSS Feed,, there are entries for dc:creator and dc:date, so I changed my code accordingly but no success. Any idea what is causing this issue? Thanks, Tiest

    I fail to see how these values could result in a HTTP comms error. But it has been a long time since that code. Let us keep the communication in one thread. We await your cleaned up code (max 25-50 lines) to see where you are now.
