The Return of the Podcasts

Submitted by C B Wright on

Waaaaay back when I first started posting fiction I used to post podcasts of every episode I published. You can still go through the archives and listen to my original attempts at recording Pay Me, Bug! -- if you insist -- though when I listen to them these days, I die a little inside.

Having all my fiction in audiobook format is something I really want to happen. My preferred solution for this is to get a brilliant narrator to read all my stories, bringing each character to life. Unfortunately, right now my budget for narrators is...

...well. Me. My budget is me.

RSS Feed in Header is WRONG

Submitted by C B Wright on

A reader sent in a bug reporting noting that the RSS feed information served in the header on each page is... well... wrong. It's still pointing to the old RSS feed, which no longer exists. This is unfortunate, since that's the feed information that gets captured by most modern browsers.

I'll fix it this evening. Keep sending in bug reports as you find them!

Quick Test

Submitted by C B Wright on

Don't mind me. This is just a quick test to make sure various doodads are working properly. If this behaves as expected it should only show up in the site news area and shouldn't be posted till around 9:00 AM EST.

Welcome back. Look out for trap doors and falling debris.

On Friday night, and went dark. Tonight (Sunday, 29 January, 11:30-ish PM EST) Eviscerati.Org takes its place. In theory, now that I only have one website to manage instead of three, it should be a lot easier to keep track of everything. It's certainly a lot more streamlined--the database lost 30megs just from removing all the "let's try to duct tape three websites together" stuff, and there's still unused cruft sitting around.

Still, there are probably going to be some issues I missed that you will run into, trip over, and nearly blind yourself on.

Site(s) Going Dark This Weekend

Submitted by C B Wright on

The plan is that this weekend all the sites will be taken off line in order to do the Great Merge of 2012. All the testing I've done supports that this should work relatively well: by "relatively well" I mean "the site ought to be up on Monday and there should be a new comic."

The good news is that if by mid-Sunday I determine things just aren't working out, I'll just restore the database backup I'll be making this evening and the site as it currently exists will be back up on Monday, none the wiser.
