Atheist News Podcast Project

Hey guys.

I probably shouldn't put this off anymore, so I'm just going to jump on it and improvise. I'm pretty sure the show is over. It was a ton of fun doing it, but with work and my son and my wife in school I simply don't have time to do it anymore.

Other folks have offered to take over but I don't really feel comfortable with that. Quit while you're ahead, sez I.

Anyhow, I payed for another year of hosting, so the archive of podcasts will be available for at least that long.

I really enjoyed podcasting, so I might do something again in the future. I'll keep you posted.

Thanks guys and gals! It was AMAZING.

Actually, the page Aiden linked is about things that are popular Christian myths that aren't anywhere in the Bible, stuff like what Angels and Satan look like.
Comment by Pat Burke on October 29, 2010 at 8:58pm
@ Aiden. Yeah, I would believe it's in the bible. Like most atheists I know, I've actually read the book, more than once, Unlike the seeming majority of xtians who tend to ascribe the personal moral d'jour to "it's in the bible" without having any kind of realistic appreciation for what is actually "in the bible".

@moJoe- I'm beginning to think what I'm seeing is a peculiarity of Chrome. Everything seems to be working, it's just that seeing a page take a couple of minutes to buffer seemed odd. It doesn't seem to matter though. Very strange. If there was a glitch during the download, wouldn't a lot be going rather badly, and quite obviously?

Comment by david perry on October 28, 2010 at 7:00pm
It all seems to be working fine. It's still buffering as I write this, for over a minute... 3......done, it's odd. I just got off of TA, it's a .ning site and it went as fast as everything else. Makes no sense. Is it possible that my Norton caught a problem here and spends extra time checking this site?
Comment by TNT666 on October 28, 2010 at 5:56pm
I'm on a laptop using FF 3.6.10 and havn't experienced any slow downs, and my ISP is notorious for being crappy...
Comment by Joseph P on October 28, 2010 at 5:33pm
Yeah, I'm a HUGE fan of NoScript. It gets rid of all of those damned video ads that jam up the browser window and slow this crappy laptop to a crawl.
Comment by david perry on October 28, 2010 at 1:03pm
It must be .ning, I dumped FF because it crashed all the time. Just an odd quirk I guess. Chrome is fast as hell everywhere else.
A good friend told me that if you are a developer, FF is the best platform, for just browsing.....I thought Chrome was the best for that.
Comment by david perry on October 28, 2010 at 11:30am
@moJoe- the next time an alert from Norton pops up I will copy it and send it off to you. I can't see how Chrome would be faster for me everywhere else except on the Nexus. Would uninstalling Firefox prove anything? Then keep IE9 as a backup browser just in case?
Comment by moJoe on October 28, 2010 at 11:18am
david: it doesn't seem to be slow for me. Atheist Nexus and the Atheist News website are hosted in different places, so that's not a problem. If using a different browser fixes the problem, it's not a bandwidth issue. As far as background scans are concerned, that seems pretty odd. If you have more specific information and would like to paste in the Norton messages word-for-word, I'll take a look. Just click the "report and issue" link at the bottom of the page.
