I have a script that goes into my site and parses the rss feeds, but when it does this the pub date jumps backup about 11 months. The code is below, require 'rss/2.0' require 'open-uri' class NewsController < ApplicationController def index begin if !$app_lang || $app_lang == 'en' feed_url = 'http://www.rediff.com/rss/usrss.xml' else feed_url = 'http://localhost:8080/WebSummary/newssummary.jsp?c... end open(feed_url) do |http| response = http.read @result = RSS::Parser.parse(response, false) logger.info @result.channel.pubDate end rescue StandardError => myStandardError logger.info(myStandardError) end end end Kind Regards, Andrew

Check your feed and see if you have a "pubDate" (literal) and that the format is something like "Sat, 07 Sep 2002 00:00:01 GMT"
