Podcast Media Offline for a while Today!

My inbox was full this morning from people not being able to access the show. Turns out the media hosting provider was having some technical issues. I knew last night when I put up the show that something was not right, but could not narrow down the issue as it looked like the media host was not having issues. Turns out they had a server go off-line for 5-6 hours that caused some of you to not get the show.

Frustrating for sure. I have been working on some backup contingencies for the media here and will be stepping up that effort so that we can automatically switch to secondary sources when the media host goes down.

    I was wondering why it hadn’t shown up this morning.

    I have been working on some backup contingencies for the media here and will be stepping up that effort so that we can automatically switch to secondary sources when the media host goes down.

    In the back of my mind I have been thinking about this a little bit. We are so dependent on one service to deliver our files. No matter if it is Libsyn, PodShow, or another solution, those trying to run a business needs that magic 4-9s (99.99% uptime). A solution would be a welcome addition to the community.
