When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

Creating new Flash Briefing Skill
« on: October 25, 2016, 12:50:58 pm »
Hi there

I wanted to created a flash briefing skill for myself. I looked at the amazon dev site and it seems rather easy with their Skills Kit.

Anyway, I selected to create a Flash Briefing skill. Just a bit of info and some url to a rss feed was required. I formatted the feed according to the amazon requirements. However when I tested it, I got the default error message that I setup when something's not working right.

So, then I just copy'n'pasted their multi-entry example feed. I adjusted the dates to be more current.

Saved and retried again. Again error - skill not working.

Ok, I thought there might be an issue because I force SSL and have HSTS setup with Letsencrypt Certs. So I disabled the forced SSL connection and retried.

Still same result.

Then, since JSON is preferred I tried their json example. Still not working.

URL for the feed is:

And here are the settings for the Flash Brief:

So, why does Echo keep saying "20Minuten is not available at the moment"?
