probably alrdy boring with this, but can't seem to shorten the size of summary in any way I have tried.
Neither of LimitWordCount, LimitWordCountXML, FirstParagraph, FirstSentence, FirstParagraph.... don't work.
Any1 gave this any thought? Any1 has an idea?

Hey guys, one more thing.

I am getting a timeout error when getting an RSS feed from
Now, I am aware that not RSS feed source will be up at every time, but this prevents me from accesing my site, since the timeout simply give me an error every time. How to get around it?
Problem is we're displaying 2 random RSS feeds from 2 random sources on hompage and on one more page from Menu(1) . Not being able to access it every time a source is down is gonna be bad for us.
