Getting something other than the MacCast?

Written by: Adam Christianson

Categories: Podcast

Hey gang. I have now received several reports of people getting what is label the 4/9 edition of the MacCast, but the audio (and video in some cases) is something completely different. Well it looks like this is an issue with Libsyn, the company that hosts my files. To handle load they serve the files from a number of servers and when iTunes or your podcatcher request a file it automatically redirects your request to the best server available. Well apparently there is something screwy with that system (they just did upgrades). So if you received the wrong file just please try again. I am working with them right now to try and correct the issue. Sorry for any trouble or confusion this may have caused any of you.

    Is it just me or did anyone else subscribed to the enhanced feed get a Super Man eposiode (the original superman cartoon audio only)?

    Everything working great here. Very awesome show. Don’t listen to the people that complain about to much of any specific topic. You do a great job filtering to bring us the mac news we care about. Look forward to each new show. Never miss it!

    Libsyn’s all right. Hopefully they’ll work it out. Sounds like they’re getting worked.

    Happened to me. I got a history lesson about General Patton…

    All fixed now though :-)

    What I find weird is when the show is called

    MacCast 04.09.06 – In England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland and Australia, this means 4th September 2006 (not 9th April 2006) – so that is a bit confusing

    But it’s your show, so you call the shots!

    We’ve been having screwy things going on with our libsyn account recently as well. Hope it is all settled soon. I get the feeling they’re going through some growing pains over there.
