1 year ago…
Today in fact I posted my very first podcast. Of course I never thought that that I would be here telling you we are getting ready to put up our 101st show at WhiteRoofRadio (show #74/#75 actually, but with the club and event shows, audio reviews and other misc. whatnot, it’s 100) and planning what to do for woofcast 100 and beyond!
This was only something to do to kill a few hours a week when I started it. Then Todd came on board and it rocked. Then we brought in Gabe (and the latest news from Motoringfile) and it rocked even more. Slowly but surely we have developed it into what it is now.
But, there is no way it would have gotten as far as it has without you, the listener, and all of your feedback, participation and help in promoting WRR to everyone that would listen. THANK YOU!
Is there more stuff coming in the future? Oh yea, you bet! Robert will continue to send in those soundseeing tours (I think they are just an excuse to have a young pretty girl ride shotgun, but I could be wrong), Michael Babishkin and I will be revisiting the event cast in July, covering all of the club stuff for MTTS. Plus the woofcasts will continue with more product reviews, more interviews and, of course, more yellow/automatic bashing!
Thanks for listening!
Something A Little Different
Amidst all the WRR server issues, and db’s dedication to getting us back to normal(!), I thought you might enjoy a little MINIart.
This weekend is the Canada Day long weekend (our national 2/4 Beerfest). Enjoy these typical Canadian winter scenes!
And Happy Birthday, Canada. (Oh, Stanley, what are you doing in Carolina??).
WRR rebuild part III
The rebuild continues!
As I mentioned earlier this week, all of the shows will be restored by Friday, if not sooner. All of the images will not be restored since many were and backups weren’t made. I am in the process of rebuidling the gallery right now and it too should be ready by Friday. Keep checking back!
If you sent in a picture for the gallery and it’s not there when the gallery again goes live, please let us know! Or, you can always resend the image.
Finally, if you find anything weird (other than missing shows or images for the rest of the week) please feel free to let us know! You can email us (email@example.com) or use the voicemail line (206) 33-WHITE or leave a comment below.
Thanks again for the patience gang!
When your MINI needs a bath…
You know your MINI needs a bath if you can do this:
From Statesman.com. There are about 9 more of these very clever ways to deal with a dusty boot window.
Thanks Jason for the tip!
You know we made you wait through all the server issues, so at least we made it a long one.
Update to the server issues. They should all be resolved. There was a final DNS hiccup that was causing many of you grief pretty much all day Monday, especially those of you west of California or Canada. I am happy to report that according to support, everything should be good to go.
Images and gallery rebuild should be completed by the end of the week. Todd should have the remaining missing episodes uploaded by the end of the week as well. If anything else comes missing, please let us know!
Woofcast #72, 2nd try
Trying again for Woof 72. Including the zipped version as I think it was short too.
Also, if you wanted to help Randy and the WMS Race Team, go over to the sponsorship page. Get those in by Tuesday the 27th and Todd will be able to get the cash to Randy before the next race!
For those of you that didn’t notice, Whiteroofradio.com suffered a severe crash last night.
I’m in the process of rebuilding everything now and am almost finished. Somethings you might notice…
- Not all of the shows are back yet. We are working on getting them all uploaded.
- Woof72 only plays for about 27 minutes. The upload last night got corrupted. I’m uploading a new copy and repost once it’s up. Watch for woof72 – 2
- Some of the pages are missing. Most noteably the gallery. I will be working to restore those images this week.
- Your comment has gone into moderation. This one shouldn’t happen, but if it does, it’s nothing to worry about
- The entire site looks ‘different’. I didn’t have a current back-up of the WRR WordPress theme, so things will be changing throughout the week.
Again, thanks for you patience! Woof 72 will be ready shortly.
