The Tech Support Drama Continues

In our on-going saga of problems with the pvcsec.com site and RSS feeds we’ve reached a point where throwing our hands up in surrender is our only option.

I, Paul, have been a DreamHost.com customer for a long time. But these last upgrades pushed out and the apparent inability to fix what ales this and my other sites leads me and the rest of the PVC Security team to research other options.

Tim, Senior Baseball Correspondent, is bringing up a temporary feed toward which we’ll point the podcast aggregators. Once we find a permanent new home we’ll share the glad news.

If you have recommendations you’d like to share with us on this topic or others, email [email protected] or #askpvcsec on Twitter.

Keep your eyes peeled for updates.

Thanks for your patience, support, and continued tolerance toward Paul’s and Ed’s (mostly Ed’s) singing.

Happy 2016!

Paul
