The producer gave me the wrong date by mistake. Caesars 24/7 is on Monday nights, not Tuesday nights, so our episode is actually tonight. You may have figured it out, but I wanted to make sure you didn't miss it.
To anyone still having download cutoff problems, we want to put to rest the theory that it might be a network issue. If you're still having trouble downloading mp3s would you please send the results of a TRACERT to perseus.franklins.net to email@example.com
This is pretty amazing, but I won't know if I like it until I play one.
OK, check out Mondays now: http://mondays.pwop.com. If that isn't an assault on your senses, what is? And just in time for the Caesar's 24/7 Rush (I hope). I also want to introduce the genius behind all of these website changes, Dax Pandhi from Nukeation (http://www.nukeation.com), a huge fan of .NET Rocks! and Mondays whom we hired to overhaul our sites. He's just awesome, and deserves all the kudos that's coming to him.
On another note, I think we may have solved the problem with downloads cutting off prematurely. If you were one of those people who had this problem, please try and hammer the server right now and report any problems.
We're about to turn on a new website for DNR: http://www.dotnetrocks.com
I'd love to get some feedback. Does it work? Do you like it? IE? Netscape? Firefox? Dead links?
Let us know what you think.
Interbridge Technologies, the ISP that hosts franklins.net, Mondays, Pwop, and .NET Rocks! is in a TEMPORARY lame mode bandwidth-wise. It has to do with a fight between upstream providers that resulted in one pulling out before the other one was in place. However, this is expected to end in a couple days, I've been told.
Meanwhile, please use the MSDN mirror for .NET Rocks! and try use bittorrent for Mondays. I'm afraid it's the best we can do.
Worse case scenario is you do something else for a couple days. You can make it for a couple days without your fix, can't you?
I have been assured that we will be back in spades very shortly.
It PAINS me to say this, but we have to postpone the Code Camp today. It figures. One of the biggest success stories in .NET Community history is usurped by mother nature with what they are calling the worst Nor'easter in Massachussetts history. If it weren't for the fact that we're in the middle of getting dumped on at a rate of about 5 inches per hour with 50 mille per hour winds, and the officials are asking people to stay off the roads, we would be going ahead with it.
For any of you who are IN Waltham already and are now snowed in, watch the blogs for information. Later on when the snow stops and the roads clear, if its not too late in the day, or hell, even if it is, we may open up the Microsoft office and at least be able to do a little geeking out. We will definitely reschedule this event, so you won't miss anything if indeed we do open up shop later.
For those signed up for the mini Code Camp in Waltham, MA tomorrow, the event is NOT cancelled.
HOWEVER, the weather is going to suck tomorrow, so be careful!
Tonight's recording will be Carl and Rory talking with - each other! The truth is, our scheduled guest had to bow out at the last minute so we are resorting to plan B, a show that has been brewing in our minds for some time that we knew we could use in just such an emergency - we're going to talk about the code we've been WRITING lately in VB.NET and C#.
If you're listening live, we'll turn on the stream and jump in the chat room at around 7:00 PM Eastern Time.
