Ahh, but it did work at one time. There was a date displayed for several
months. I believe it disappeared with the December issue.
I tried refreshing the feed, but nothing downloaded. I will try a few
more times this afternoon and let you know what I see.

Ah, yes... the wonderful situation where everything except the one
constant  has changed. Repeatedly. I just love those (that tends to
be the point where my clients call me in to put out the fire. :)
In any case, I've just tweaked the calling script and the relevant
template to contain <lastBuildDate> and <pubDate> stanzas, regenerated
the feeds, and uploaded the whole shebang to the LG site. Please fire up
your RSS reader and let me know if that took care of it.
