Two questions about the website

August 23, 2010, 10:40 PM posted in General Discussion

Okay, these might have been answered somewhere, but I haven't noticed.

One, is the new "How to use ChinesePod" series replacing "News and Features"?  This is really just out of curiosity.  I normally don't listen to the "News and Features".

Two, is it just me, or was the site offline for about half a day this last weekend?  If yes, what is being done about this?  This is the second weekend the site has gone haywire.

xiaophil, the site must have been offline for at least half of a day this weekend, Sunday morning, U.S. West Coast time.

No idea about News and Features.  I wasn't aware that it was being cancelled.

Okay, this confirms my suspicions. Thanks. By the way nobody talked about it (as far as I can see), it almost felt like it didn't happen.

they have both been talked about.

the new show is just for 4 podcasts. I think it alternates with n and f every couple of weeks though I'd have to listen again to make sure.

it was off over the weekend for several hours because of a broken fibreoptic cable to the server in us I believe, now repaired

Xiaophil, GoManly talked about it here, Sarah replied.

How to Use ChinesePod is a mini-series; I think it's going to be on every other Sunday just for four episodes. I heard about this in the previous News and Features.

Ahhh, yes. Thank you.

Yep, just to confirm: there are two posts on that expand on these points.

Also, we put up a community post on CPod yesterday for those that had missed the conversation in News and Features. Check it out here.
