Reminder: Site Changes This Weekend; Expect Weirdness

28 Dec

Hello! You may recall us mentioning that we plan to move our website over to our new host soon. We may even have mentioned that it would happen the weekend of New Year’s. Welp, that’s this weekend. At some point on Saturday (Dec. 30th), we’ll begin the transfer process from WordPress hosting to our new host. This process should be pretty quick, but we’re setting aside the entire weekend just in case there are any issues.

Here’s what you should expect around these parts in the next couple weeks:

  1. The link to our website may not work for a short period of time (possibly as little as a few hours).
  2. When the site finally transfers over, you’ll notice some BIG changes. Our navigation will look quite different, and a lot of things may be a mess for a while. The main feed should continue to work just fine, so you shouldn’t miss anything. Just hang in there. We’ll get it all cleaned up before our new season starts.
  3. Once everything is cleaned up and in working order, we’ll issue another announcement on our main feed letting you know of all of the changes and what you can do to make sure you don’t miss anything (or how you can take advantage of all the new things).

And that’s it. So expect some weirdness over the weekend and in the weeks to follow.

And thanks for listening and reading in 2017!


Announcement: The 2017 Listener / Reader Survey

19 Dec

I know. We’re a bit late putting this message up on the blog. Still, better late than never, amaright?

Two years ago, we ran a survey primarily for listeners of the show. The intent was get a better sense of what was working and not working for our listeners, what listeners wanted us to do in the future, etc. Now it’s 2017, the year of trashfires, and we’re trying to end things on a high note with a bunch of fantastically geeky podcasts and a brand new survey for listeners AND blog readers.
