Please Stand By!

In an effort to save our donors some money, and to put the bucks back into new equipment, The Sonic Society has been experimenting with some free server storage.

That experiment is now over. We’ve found that too many listeners saw our URL disappear for them when traffic started to ramp up from show releases and page visits. So we’re moving back to a modestly priced server as we continue to keep working on updates.

Our webmistress, the wonderfully talented Ginny has been doing a great job with the wordpress site and I think you can appreciate- as we do- the amazing functionality she’s brought to it for Season 10.

Ginny, David, and I, and all our guests are doing our very best to try to keep the interruptions at a minimum as we move the server over, but please be patient as we work to wrinkle out all the bugs and continue to improve your experience.

Thanks so much,

Jack!

soundcloudWhen you’re on the hunt for more Audio Drama, don’t forget to look in the sky… or rather in the clouds. While there’s all kinds of concern in the media right now about using i-clouds to store your data, here’s one place where you can be sure you’ll be safe to look up some listening. EC Bond shares with us a great collaborative place for those folks who use SoundCloud to put up their finished audio drama works. The Modern Audio Drama stream is a super place to find your favourites and new ones too! Come walk the clouds!
