I am pretty sure that yahoo did some thing to stop us all from grabing 
from there site a few weeks ago.

I have data again from d1 but its not often upto date and it does 
appear to be now lacking the more detailed data.

I have Digital so if they were thinking of doing some thing with 
now/next it would be great but i dont think there is any data there.

D1 whats happening?
