"Due to Circumstances Beyond Our Control" - with a server that processes all the audio files on Newstalgia suddenly going down over the weekend, it's created a few embarrassing moments. But we're working on fixing it.
May 21, 2012

Shit happens.

If you've been having trouble this weekend, listening to some of the posts on Newstalgia, it's because we've got a situation here.

Over the weekend, the server that processes all the audio files decided to up and quit, leaving most all the posts with a "file temporarily not available" message on the player and a lot of questions from you readers.

The good news is the offending piece of equipment has been replaced and all the new posts will be up and running, very shortly. The bad news is, the older posts may take a bit (a few to several days) longer to get back to their old selves again.

It's been frustrating and the engineers have been working to exhaustion to get everything back up and running, but they're doing it.

All I can offer is an apology if you've been frustrated too, but the situation is getting back to normal.

Thanks for your patience.

Can you help us out?
