Good News!

September 24, 2011

Good news on the posting front, we are back on iTunes! This should not affect those who have already downloaded and subscribed, if you have, but find you are missing episode 3 once it is online, please delete your current iteration of our podcasts and resubscribe, incredibly sorry for the inconvenience!

Good News/Bad News

September 23, 2011

OK, a little sad update on the news front…

Podomatic, which is the hosting service for our podcasts that we use for our direct downloads and itunes downloads has unfortunately emailed us informing us that our monthly bandwidth limit has been exceeded! Obviously in one way this is brilliant news, we never expected the listenership we have gained in such short a time, unfortunately this has left us slightly unprepared.

We were given no advanced warning for this, and unfortunately all you will hear is a short advert asking for donations. WE DO NOT WANT DONATIONS OURSELVES that is podomatic talking, but we do ask you stick with us until it is updated properly, we will keep you informed on Twitter.

If anyone has any hosting suggestions (we are going to use the WordPress for now, but it is not ideal) then please email us, comment on this post or twitter.

How you listen to our podcasts is changing!

September 23, 2011

Just thought I would write a little something to discuss how you can listen to our podcasts. Unfortunately us Thwipping Boys are’t the wealthiest bunch of geeks, and so we have to rely on free hosting avenues this means –

Soundcloud – Due to Soundclouds time limit for free users we will only be hosting the latest podcast on Soundcloud, this is due to the ease of adding the Soundcloud player to our blog.

Podomatic – We currently use this to host the download links as well as alternative player versions, due to limited storage space for free users we will only be able to host the latest 3 or 4 podcasts, this will be ok for this week and possibly next week, but after that older ones will be removed, so we apologise profusely to subscribers through that site.

Luckily WordPress has a lovely and sizeable storage facility, which means we will be able to host a number of forthcoming for downloads on this very site, so straight downloads will not be disappearing.

And finally, WE ARE ON ITUNES! WOOP! All episodes are there and ready to subscribe to, all you ned to do is search Thwipping Boys, comics, or… to be honest, pretty much any of DC’s main heroes and we’ll come up.

Hope this does not affect people too much, and enjoy listening!
