8 of the 10 article_tipsN boxes are empty, so the Tips box on the
linux.com homepage (right under the penguin/LC logo) is empty 4
out of 5 reloads.

Apparently search.pl isn't searching deep enough for RSS data??

mysql> select bid, length(block), last_update, rdf from blocks
where bid like 'article_tips%';

    Fixed. The 10 blocks now have their 'rdf's pointing to www.linux.com/
    search.pl with a tid=43, thus returning any stories with the Tips topic.
    Previously it was pointing to tips.linux.com/search.pl, which (at present)
    only returns stories with a Tips primaryskid (this will/should be fixed
    eventually).
