Love dem new website

Postby Leprejuan » Mon Sep 12, 2011 3:16 am

As a non-apple user, I gotta say 1-click access to the show and no whitepage links = whahahha! Of course, there is something to be said for the old, more difficult access keeping those kids across the street from hanging out here, but I usually enjoy what kids have to say....

I'm not sure what he's saying. Could you please elucidate?
As it stands, we've moved the feeds over to a new source, and that could be what you are seeing. However, the new website isn't up and rolling yet. Let's just say we have a patchwork going right now.

But please, to help us further define what works for non-apple users, couldja be specific about what is and is not better?

Thanks!

Certainly. I used to have RSS through Firefox that worked kinda crappily. Clicking on the link (just like I do for Abby or Big&Risch) would take me to a [quicktime, MP4 or some other video format] for the episode, and then I'd have to navigate around to get to the main page.

The MP3 link off the old site took Firefox to a blank white page, not any MP3's. I could DL the MP3's later when they made the "every five" archive, or use a special (somewhat unreliable) Firefox plugin to take the original quicktime file from the main page and zap it into an MP3.

M y first ever comment wasn't about the terrific stories, but was a quick comment about some jerk who overreacted and complained about his trouble getting the stories. Norm shot back a polite note about how to do so, the way you do for the... less able computer users. I piped in that actually, I had very similar troubles to the loudmouth, but I had just found a way around it.

Later, after you added the subscribe link, I discovered if I used the red SUBSCRIBE TO MP3 link and pretended to subscribe every bleeding time, I could access the feed directly during the bookmarking process and I started grabbing them that way, off the feed.

This site does what the old one was SUPPOSED to that way. I clicked on the RSS link from my browser and came directly to the main page. I used SAVE AS from the MP3 link on the main page and BAM, it downloaded. Such luxury.

Well good, thanks for the info. But you are then going to love the new site, as it will actually let you download the episode from the front page! Gasp. I don't know what we will do with all these modern conveniences. :D
