Yahoo Stock Quote Feed not working

I have a stock market feed on a webpage and it uses the Yahoo Finance csv file feeds via xml. For months it has been working fine. Recently the Dow Jones feed has been giving me a "subscript out of range error". In my code its the feed in the obj reference. The Nasdaq (obj2) and NYSE (obj6) feeds are fine. I even tried using the following link in the code for obj: http://finance.yahoo.com/d/quotes.csv?s=%5EDJI&f=sl1d1t1c1ohgv&e=.csv but I get an access denied error. Has Yahoo changed something or do I need to update the link in some way?

Dim obj,obj2,obj6

Set obj = Server.CreateObject("MSXML2.XMLHTTP")
obj.Open "GET", "http://download.finance.yahoo.com/d/quotes.csv?s=%5EDJI&f=sl1d1t1c1ohgv&e=.csv", false
obj.Send
resp = obj.ResponseText
set obj = nothing

Set obj2 = Server.CreateObject("MSXML2.XMLHTTP")
obj2.Open "GET", "http://download.finance.yahoo.com/d/quotes.csv?f=sl9d1t1c1cohgvabjknpx&s=^IXIC", false
obj2.Send
resp2 = obj2.ResponseText
set obj2 = nothing

Set obj6 = Server.CreateObject("MSXML2.XMLHTTP")
obj6.Open "GET", "http://download.finance.yahoo.com/d/quotes.csv?f=sl9d1t1c1cohgvabjknpx&s=^NYA", false
obj6.Send
resp6 = obj6.ResponseText
set obj6 = nothing

dim lines,lines2,lines6 ' array for how many stocks
lines=split(resp,Chr(10))

lines2=split(resp2,Chr(10))

lines6=split(resp6,Chr(10))

contents = split(lines(i),",")  ' array for items in each line

Interesting you should ask that.  A friend just called me up and asked me to create a 'portfolio' and do the Excel download because the DJI was not showing up in his download.  He was right, it doesn't, he wasn't imagining things and it wasn't his computer.

And here's why: http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/finance/known_issues/fitaki-13.html

"Because of new restrictions implemented by the Dow Jones Index, Yahoo! is no longer able to provide Dow Jones Index data for download in CSV format. We apologize for any inconvenience."
