More success…

King Xerxes!I am the King! I am the King!

Well, my little podcasting video was an enormous success, so enormous in fact that I am left scrambling looking for a better site to host my files. As of three o’clock this afternoon, over 58 people had downloaded at least some part of it, which choked a lot of my available bandwidth. Luckily, my brother runs websites with much greater bandwidth requirements, so I suspect I’ll have an easy solution fairly soon. Till then you can take advantage of Gordon Smith’s generous offer and get it from his mirror site. Hope that helps.

Incidentally, the illustration on the left comes from The Project Gutenberg eBook of Nonsense Books, by Edward Lear, which contains many illustrations and bad limericks. Give it a peek.

One thing you might also try is This pulls files from various volunteer servers. Reports vary as to how well this work, but it doesn’t require any software to work, just a minor modification to the link, which causes the target file to be cached.
