The Rissington Podcast may be no more, but I’d always intended its site to stay as an archive of the episodes that John and I did manage to record. However when my old web host did a server upgrade, the Textpattern database was corrupted. I was told it was easy for them to fix, but after a year of nagging them I gave up.
This was it’s fate, the CSS would no longer load, and various Textpattern errors were spat out…
I couldn’t even access via FTP anymore. Did I have a backup of the database? No. What an eejit. Lesson learned.
So, using what files I still had locally (which wasn’t much, whoops), and the Wayback Machine, I’ve restored the site, and moved it to its new host at Engine Hosting. All the URLs now work, and all past episodes can be heard and/or downloaded, should you want to!
<audio> tag instead.
So, The Rissington Podcast is back, even if there isn’t anything new to listen to…
