Paul & Tim made more changes to the site. These should improve performance and security.
- PVCSec.com leverages a Content Delivery Network (CDN), improving site performance and availability
- A certain plugin that often breaks the site will no longer auto update
- PVCSec.com now enjoys a Let’s Encrypt SSL certificate – check it out at https://www.pvcsec.com
- Our site monitoring includes a third-party service to help notify the PVC Security team of outages faster
- PVCSec.com now supports the Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) Project protocol
- Removed all FeedBurner references for our RSS feeds
- Fixed our social media plugins for automatic updates
- A bunch of additional cleanup and maintenance
Still to come is finishing our move to LibSyn for hosting the podcast files. We hope to complete it over the next week or so.
We still have a way to go. Please let us know in the comments, by email at email@example.com, or on twitter @pvcsec about comments, compliments, or issues with the site.
Responding to your plaintive cries, we restored the podcast RSS feed.
~We Think!~ <insert Descartes joke here>
We need YOU, Dear Friends, to test and let us know your findings at firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet at @pvcsec.
We thank you!
PVCSec is now on Facebook and LinkedIn. Check us out on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/pvcsec and on LinkedIn at http://www.linkedin.com/pub/pvc-security-podcast/a9/18/275/.
These join our cadre of other social media outlets:
And of course you can find us at podcatching outlets such as:
Share & Enjoy!
A few or more new features have been added to the site.
First, we have a mirror for all of the podcasts over at leiturgia.com. Just follow the mirror link in the posts if for some reason you can’t download the podcast direct from PVCSec.com.
Next, we have some probationary podcast art on its way. We hope to release it as a beta for your comments.
Several WordPress JetPack features have been turned on. For example, you can share PVCSec posts to most of the big social networks.
You can now log in with your WordPress.com account. And you can comment with your WordPress, Facebook, Twitter, and other social media accounts.
The mobile viewing experience should improve with some under-the-hood changes.
Some features are coming, such as leveraging CouldFlare’s SSL/TLS for more secure connections to the site and properly working podcast syndication and iTunes subscription options.
We’re also looking at more appealing themes for the site. We want them to be inviting, intuitive, and provide the most information possible.
We are hard at work getting the two episodes we have “in the can” ready to share with all of you and record episode 3. Here’s a quick update on these activities.
Our intrepid engineer, Tim, is working on getting PVCSec up on iTunes for all you Apple folks out there.
I’m working on the web site and setting up a podcast RSS feed.
We’re both waiting on the Silver Fox (Ed) to finish the logos. He’s 1/3 of the way there. My art-school daughter is helping out, so I expect great things.
We are looking for music for the show. Ed and I are looking at some resources to which Tim pointed us. We’re also reaching out to friend and family who may be so inclined as to provide us some sweet, sweet tunes for a theme song, closing music, and maybe some interstitial music.
I am also working on show notes. We’ll probably start providing those with EP #3.
Enjoy the podcast, everyone!
