    I'm trying to create pages for the MacMall datafeed and find that over 80% of the link URLs I tried result in product not available. Does anyone else have this problem? My feed is dated 11/27, the latest one that's available, and can only find unpopular items and no complete systems.

    This is also the case with the access micro feed and quite a few others. Some of these feeds are entirely useless.

    Can anyone from CJ chime in here? PCMall and MacMall have nice products and a nice site so why is their datafeed so bad? My feed hasn't been updated since 11/27, many of the products are missing images and most result in the dreaded "We're sorry but this product (#xxxxx) is currently unavailable. Please call a MacMall representative at 800-328-2790." Ok for MacMall, at least they can show a phone number but not so good for their affiliates.

    This file looks like it was put together by someone who knew practically nothing about computers or simply did not care. Notebooks are NOT monitor accessories and CorelDraw should NOT come up in a search for networking routers.

    I can code this make some sense out it so my visitors can find SOME products but I get the feeling CJ and/or PCMall & MacMall just don't care. This should have been a 2 or 3 day job but after a week I'm only half way done and hoping this data is updated before I go live with it.

    How about it CJ/MacMall? Is this as good as it gets? If so, I think I'm wasting my time. The last thing I want to do is have my visitors follow one dead link after another and stare at all those missing images.
