I haven't been happy with the CDN performance. I mean, happy, but not amazed.

As you see on V3 today, it's all messed up. S3's API isn't accepting the episode images for 240 nor is it getting the new JS files... so basically, it's broken.

I'm SURE they'll fix it, but I'm also sure I won't have this for even a day. It's a set-back, but I'm cancelling cloudfront and going to instead setup our buckets on S3 and use CloudFlare as the CDN.

Means having to redo our entire DNS, which is a bigger job than you'd think because we host SO MANY subdomains... but I'm going to have to close down some of the old subdomains and change my CDN model so we can meet the demand of our growing audience.

Bear with me as V3 will seem stagnant while I work through the CDN issues.

I thought at a point Category 5 viewers received a discount through Robbie's web hosting service and/or domain registering?

Forgive me if I'm wrong, but thought I'd check here before I google "good deals" myself Smile

We're launching a new partnership in New York which is going to infuse the show with a large number of new viewers, and also allow viewers an easy way to find short clips of each episode.

For example, being able to watch JUST the feature (kind of like the old "The Meat" feature, but more organized) rather than watching the full one hour when the full hour is just not an option.

Hopefully you'll all continue to watch the full show... and we'll continue to include some awesome stuff on the live show that is NOT going to make its way to the clip show.

Anyways, very excited about the growth of the show over the next few months. V3 launches on July 1st, and you'll be amazed at some of the other, untold secrets that will also be launching around the same time.

Category5 TV is stronger than ever in Season 5, and as we get closer and closer to our 5th anniversary show, you won't believe some of the magic!

Just curious what other viewers consider the best IRC clients to use for the Cat5 chat-room. The web based IRC client offered by Freenode (the one that the Cat5 website links to) certainly offers an easy way to get into the chat room, but the chat features are somewhat limited.

There are a lot of multi-protocol IM clients that support IRC, and a few IRC specific ones. I'm curious what others are using, and what are the key features that make your choice attractive to you. Pidgin is open source which makes it very attractive, but is Pidgin the hands down winner? or are there others with key features that Pidgin lacks?

I am not a heavy IM user so I don't stay current on the alternatives for IM clients. I'd appreciate the insights of other viewers.

Thanks

Well folks, V3 is coming together. It's not near completion, but it's getting closer to Phase 2.

While I am unsure of the specific date of the next phase of the Beta, I am please to announce that V3 will launch on July 1st!

Set the day aside if you're able, it'll be amazing to see how well it outperforms V2!

Looking forward to Phase 2 as well, since that will be when you on the beta team really step up to the plate and start giving me some hardcore feedback.

Robbie,
Did you implement the CDN for the forms as well? Because it seems like since the theme has changed the form's load a ton faster.

I created the importer to move all existing viewer accounts over to V3 without having to change passwords.

Just thought you'd be excited to know that. Smile

Do we hold onto www. or drop it and become http://category5.tv (instead of http://www.category5.tv)?

What are you more apt to type or use?

The issue:
By removing the www. we have to start over in the search engines. I'll setup 301 redirects so it's not a HUGE big deal, but it could be pretty painful for a few months as the search engines find the new url.
