[EDIT] Make sure to read comments for any troubleshooting that may be required.

Need I say it again? Here we go again...

New URL to ads is a bit longer, but here's the formula/algorithm.

strange. I'm able to see both today's (Friday) and tomorrow's (Saturday) as expected. make sure you do not have any typos.

Dammit, do the people running that site really not have anything better to do than screwing with people who will potentially feed money to the business that pays them?

Anyhow, I also can't get anything using these new links... I get an '302' error saying the page has moved but the link of where it was moved TO does not work ;(
