Last Google Parser Out of Order
The Last Google Parser, which seeing as how it didn't use regex was always a bit of hack put together with duct tape and chewing gum, appears to no longer be able to identify the last known Google result. See for yourself:

lastgoogle.com

It will still give you a link to the Google page containing the last result. But starting around October 5th, it stop delivering the actual page, indicating that Google either (A) changed the way it formats its results pages, or (B) started blocking queries by the parsing script.

I'll try to fix this -- along with the Last Google Blog feeder -- as soon as I have a chance. Which will probably be just in time for the next format update that breaks things.
