A Techs Blog
Whilst we are broadcasting 7 days a week the small technical team are working behind the scenes. For those that might be interested I thought I start a blog of the sorts of technical problems and projects we have at Vintage Radio. I only enter stuff in this section at random, as and when the moment occurs.
Web site updates beckon
Need to see how we can get a closer integration between Facebook and Joomla plus add some Facebook like buttons to articles etc.
Need a podcast manager system as the number of podcasts available for downloading is now too large and I need a search and grouping facility. Can't find one for free yet - may have to buy one.. Need to think how I migrate the web site software to the latest release 2.5 - Joomla has introduced major changes and many of our modules don't port to the new version.

Web site pages for our presenters
On the 17th and 18th May we experienced frequent transmission breaks during the afternoon reported by some listeners. I listened for a couple of hours non-stop on the second day about an hour after we had a report and the system was rock solid. Equipment logs all show no problems, we've recently installed some new network equipment - but thats OK. Our Service Provider assures us there have been no problems or server outages. The problem goes away - what was that all about?
