Gift of Xmas Podcast Technical Support


A few minutes before nine this morning, we went live with The 17th Annual Humble & Fred Christmas Show at

Plan A was to have Odeo host it all.  We have their player embedded on the page for streaming and the podcast and MP3 link were pointing to the file on Odeo's servers.  All week long the tests were successful until last night when I noticed Odeo's servers were sputtering.  It would work, then it wouldn't work.  It would have a good hour and then a bad hour.  I quickly went to Plan B, hosting the file at Filelodge, but I kept the Odeo player in the hopes that it would work itself out.

I'm now looking for a Plan C.  If you have tons of bandwidth at your disposal and don't mind hosting a popular 42MB file, please let me know.

If you have any technical questions about subscribing to the podcast or hearing the show, leave a comment here.  Consider this the Gift of Xmas technical support page.

Oh yeah, enjoy the show.  It'll be up through the end of the year.
