Woe is me

Post by normsherman » Mon Jun 16, 2008 5:26 pm

Wow. So the upgrade from iWeb06 to 08 changed our feed url from http://rss.mac.com/normsherman/iWeb/Sit ... st/rss.xml to http://web.mac.com/normsherman/Site/Podcast/rss.xml.

After an hour on the phone with apple support it was determined that there is no way to go back and that I should consider putting some text on the main page telling listeners they need to re-subscribe. Right.

I am amazed that apple overlooked the fact that changing feed urls in an upgrade would have an enormous impact on bloggers/podcasters etc.

Currently I'm trying to figure out how to do an rss redirect or something- can't leave all those poor bastards out there stranded on New Caprica with dead feed URL's.

This is weak Apple, Steve Jobs raised you better than this.

Update

FYI for wheoever is keeping up with the Drabblecast development issues as of late.
Working with someone to get the feed back to the old one- should be been much easier than it is turning out to be.
This will be annoying because those of you who have resubscribed will have to do so yet again. :(

It's the lesser of two evils though because the majority of people who subscribe probably just think we're running behind if they are paying attention at all. Also, won't have to go around changing all the podcast alley/pickle etc type sites with our old feed.

Sorry!

So, if I still have the old feed in my iTunes, I should be good?

Tom Baker (tbaker2500) saved Drabblecast.

Ask him into your heart and he will do the same for you.

Eew. I never did like that particular phrase. If somebody could wrap it up into 100 words though, it might give me a giggle.

Okay, okay, I'll submit it tomorrow.

I think a Christmas special should be made about how Tom Baker saved DC! I hear there's a shortlist of washed-up actors lining up to be in the special: Bea Arthur, Belki from Perfect Strangers, Dave Coulier, The entire cast from Facts of Life, but rumor is Tom Arnold wants to play Norm Sherman.
One day he will look into what a ‘stigmata’ really is; for now, it is his trump card for getting out of work. He simply says ‘stigmata’ and they say ‘shit, hope you feel better soon.’ End of story.

With a name like 'Tom Baker' I suggest we work in as many obscure Doctor Who references as we can.

Tom, we must have your picture so that you can be immortalized somehow. Perhaps as a Mii...

Don't we have to nail him to a tree and go through that whole process before he can get in to our hearts?

Nope- not with Tom. You can just give him your username and password and he can get right in there.

Oh good one Norm :evil: . It's lucky I don't know too many people who come readin' around these parts. I know WAAAAYYYY too many preachers who would see that, think, 'Wow! The magic words to reach today's generation!' and slip the reference into tomorrow's sermon.

Jesus wants to log into your heart today. Don't go lagging up his ping times. Why not let him write a cookie on your life? He knows your username, and all he needs is your password. He's not going to brute force the issue. Give him your password now! Don't wait! He'll come like a script kiddie in the night, and you don't want to be on the wrong side of the firewall when that happens.'

Please don't go giving anyone ideas...

Oi gevalt...

For what it's worth Norm, I've long since forgotten your username and passwords. And thanks for not nailing me to a tree.
You're my quasi-ichthian angel, you're my half-amphibian queen...

The Dribblecast, we don't care if you sound like an idiot.
