Today was a celebration of podfeet.com and NosillaCast's success!
We have 127 unique visitors from the US, Australia, Canada, the
European Union, Japan, Great Britain, Poland and Germany! I'm so
thrilled to have so many people stopping by and listening, I had no
idea it would take off this quickly.
Our listening audience is 79% Macintosh, 17% Windows, 4% unknown (maybe
that's the linux people?), and even 0.5% Solaris! I suspect
that's John Clingan from Sun...
A great measure of the intelligence of our user community is what
browser they use, and I'm proud to announce it's only 9% Internet
Explorer! We're 68% Safari & 11% Firefox. 5% are coming
in from iTunes, and 3% unknown.
I do wonder why so few are coming in from iTunes, and missing out on
the ease of podcasting - so I asked the users to explain why they
aren't using podcasting by dropping me a line at email@example.com.
I've added some enhancements to podfeet.com, so check them out. I
added a freeware/shareware section, which I expect to see change
frequently because I love new software! Added a section on my
podcasting tool suite, don't expect a lot of change there though over
time. Also plan to add a gadget page at a later date since I love
a new gadget almost as much as I love freeware.
I'm trying to learn to use Wordpress as a blogging tool to publish the shownotes, look for improvements soon.
In the "best mom EVER" category, I pointed the listeners to my other
website where I posted pictures of how we burned a model rocket last
night. It was great fun, and very appropriate during Fire Safety
month! Check out the pics and video at http://homepage.mac.com/asheridan/videos/broadsword_web/index.html.
Reviewed two freeware applications:
Widgets from before Apple "borrowed"
the idea - cross platform for Mac and Windows. Very pretty and
provide more flexibility that Apple's Dashboard Widgets.
Slick tool for creating web albums of
pictures. java-based, so it works on all forms of UNIX including
HP-UX, Solaris, Mac OSX, Linux, as well as Windows and even OS2.
Check out their website for forums, tutorials, and FAQs.
They claim it speaks 24 languages.
I'm looking for a good freeware ftp client, so if you know of one, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
because Cyberduck isn't quite doing it for me. I have trouble
with it not refreshing properly after I load things on my website, and
the folders pop open too easily (and stay open) when I'm just trying to
drag past them. I tried using OneButton, but once I navigated
into a folder I couldn't figure out how to go back up (and any kind of
clicking on the ..folder icon had no effect), and writing to the
developer just got me a bounced back email.
