The problem is not with the XML, it's with this code.  This code no longer works with Twitter because they have since changed authentication methods.  See  https://dev.twitter.com/ for more information on how to authenticate against Twitter's API.

Matt,

The source zip has been fixed! Please let me know if you have any trouble with this new one ( which is right at 7 MB )

Wordpress is eating the double backslashes in the windows path.

C: \\ Windows \\ System32 \\ PING.EXE.

Hey Matt, sorry for the delay in fixing the zip, I've got it on my list. There is code listed in this post that shows how to use nativeProcessStartupInfo, but my example uses unix style pathing /usr/var/etc.

If you're on windows your pathing style needs to look like this :

"C:\\Windows\\System32\\PING.EXE"

* Notice the double backslashes.

Everything else should be the same. Hope this helps.

I think they started with foam before moving to chicken meat.

Chickens have bones, glad somebody finally explained that to me. What still upsets me is McDonalds getting away with telling the public their nuggets are boneless white meat chicken.

Chickens have bones - yes

Fast food is processed animal parts - yes

Does McDonalds put these warnings on the fun boxes? - No, they shouldn't have to because they only sell boneless white meat chicken nuggets. Right?

I grew up eating McDonalds but my children have not. We just happened to get lucky one night while visiting school friends at the PlayPlace.

It's my opinion McDonalds has the money to serve the "bone free" food they market to the masses.

This post is emotional, but it's also my site. Thanks for stopping by.

The code is correct, but the word "table" is a reserved keyword in SQL. I never name my database tables "table" so I've never run into this one before.

Do you have any other tables in your database that you can run this code against?
