Phew. Paragraphs man!

Your blog is not properly producing the XML data that the AJAX calendar is
calling home for.

http://nycscv.org/?ec3_xml=2008_10 should yield some XML. Like this...

Now, why is that not working?

Let's look closer...

http://nycscv.org/?ec3_xml=2008_10 gives this result:


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?><calendar><month
</object></layer></span></div></table></body></html><!-- adsok -->
<script language='javascript'

Firstly, there is a stray new line in there at the beginning... that'll break
it. That *might* be down to a bad plug-in or theme. PHP files *must* start
with <?php and end with ?> - there must be no stray new-lines.

Secondly, there is a load of rubbish pasted at the end. Everything after
</calendar> has been added by your hosting provider. It looks like they are
editing your pages to insert advertising. That makes the XML invalid, so
that's probably enough to kill it too.

Upgrade to a better ISP.
