Re: B-sides RSS feed starts at #24

An entry can have a whole story in it, like on the main feed. The main feed is currently 277KB with 50 episodes in it. At another time, it was 450KB. If I push it and up the count, a big story will push us over the limit, and nobody will get the new episode. Damn safety margins.

Re: B-sides RSS feed starts at #24

RSS feeds should be limited to 0.5MB. Anything over that, and many pod catchers croak on the feed, not updating. The files they link to (the episodes themselves) can be almost any size.

Re: Unread posts, difficult to spot?

Huh. Learned something new with the little box there. I expect the problem with people getting the read/unread to display wrong, is either their computer or the ISP is caching a copy of the page when they shouldn't. It works for me, but I've visited other phpBB forums which do have an issue with unr...

Re: B-sides RSS feed starts at #24

I've bumped it up to 50 episodes in the feed. Unfortunately, that is the max I can safely support in any feed before it gets to large for podcatchers. There are plans to make those archives available to download in bulk when we refresh the website. ASID, it unfortunately is simpler than that. iTunes...

Re: Can't find B-sides, using iPad and iPod

Sorry for the delay in response, and sorry for the troubles you are having! The problem is actually much more complicated than it should be. Easy answer- using safari on the iPad, go the drabblecast.org. Enter your b-sides login info in the sidebar, and listen/watch episodes directly from the web pa...

Re: B-side #20 is DC #278

I'm not even sure where the feed burner link exists anymore. Anything that exists there is a cached copy the feed burner holds after Norm moved to for-pay b-sides. There is no connection to that feed and the actual B-sides feed at all any more.

Deep in the jungle, I heard a sound. Suddenly, I felt gas forcing its way up my rectum... I’d entered unfarted territory.

Yes, that traces it to iTunes. The best thing to do is delete the feed, and add it again.

Re: Bsides?

Episode 51 is the newest.
If you use your info to log into the website itself, using the login fields on the right hand side, can you access the b-sides content?

Looking for old drabble

My memory is failing. And so is much categorization of searchable data for past episodes. There was an old episode, 5 years ago or so. The drabble was about a production line of teddy bears, and when each one came to life at the end of the line it was hit with a hammer to kill it before shipping it ...

Re: Drawing from the Drabblecast?

I'm not an expert, I just play on on the internet. There seems to be two sets of rules, the law and the convention. Law is that you need to obtain (written?) permission to use the story. Convention is when reading it, give credit to where it first appeared, in this case the DC forums. I'm sure other...
