Yahoo Pipes

We're currently being rate limited by Yahoo Pipes, which is resulting in long delays between updates on any pipes feeds. 

While awaiting a response from Yahoo support, we've backed down the poll time for these feeds to 8 hours, which hopefully should get things moving again, albeit far slower than we'd like.
