|MacOS' RSS screen saver really unreliable?|
I've added a Mac to my list of machines, and was excited to discover the screen saver option where it would download images from an RSS feed and use them as pretty pictures for the screen saver. I quickly wrote a little script which returns 100 random images in an RSS feed. The screen saver worked great at first, but seems really unreliable now. It seems like it will only use images for the feed for a little while, and then falls back to just complaining that there are no images available. There doesn't seem to be a pattern, and there are no errors logged on the server (in fact, I can't see the machine grabbing the feed at all).
So, does anyone have any hints on how to make this suck less?
