    I sent a Twitter about Talkshoe. The site still isn't coming up. I tried to call in, and they're still answering, but when I entered the CIA's ID, it said the ID was invalid, or there wasn't a call scheduled at this time.

    I believe it is the entire site - I can't get Talkshoe.com to come up.

    Trying to log into Talkshoe now - site was down earlier. (few seconds later) Nope - whole site is down.

    Remember, we are not wedded to one web talk service. Other services are available if talkshoe acts up and we need to start "exploring".

    I do hope this can get resolved soon.

    Time will tell. It always does, except when it has Laryngitis.

    Can Ben and Diann stick around?

    I've emailed Ian about trying a 'studio' show on Skype if we don't get sorted soon.

    I'm still here. Got forwarded a tweet from Louis from Talkshoe:

    "We're working to restore the TalkShoe website and we'll have it back up as soon as possible Sorry for any inconveniences! "

    Thanks.

    Ian, Diann, Andy (Tiggs) and myself - with Merlin helping out have just done a 'studio' CIA.

    Hopefully Ian will clean it up - get rid of my mistakes and upload it soon.

    Sorry to all our regulars.

    Cheers, daveac

    Talkshoe is still down. Almost 6pm EDT here. I didn't expect it to be down for this long. Thankfully Doctor Who: Podshock were not using them for our recording today (which we just finished up a short while ago), but I feel bad for CIA and the others that use their service.

    Though we have not been completely unaffected by their outage, it has been slowing down our home page load time as their button (link to Talkshoe) on our right block on the homepage is trying to load from their site and obviously can not.

    Perhaps I should remove the button graphic until their site returns.

    I also wonder now if this means all the live recordings on the live feed are unavailable at this time. I should test that.

    Cheers,
    Louis

    OK, I removed the linking button on our homepage to Talkshoe. Now our homepage loads normally without the long delay due to the missing graphic.

    Also, it is not just their website that is down, the entire server must be down as I just tried to download one of our live shows hosted there, and it was a no-go. Frown

    That's it. We must have brought them down as this happened after I put up the article about all our live shows reviewing the 2008 series of Doctor Who.

    Let's hope Talkshoe sorts this out soon.

    Cheers,
    Louis

    My goodness.... what drama I have slept through XD
    Really glad I didn't wake up at 4am for that.

    Will next weeks show still be Sarah Jane series 2?
    Because if you're doing Merlin again I won't be on it (spoilers and nothing to add)

    Also, next weekend Australia goes off daylight savings... which means the times will change for me. And I can never remember if it's an hour earlier or later. I'm hoping later.

    When does the US go off summer time? Is that coming up soon?

    EDIT: I was bored at work and worked out, if we do a show every sunday without taking any weeks off, CIA will reach it's 100th show on May 31st 2009... one week after Towel day.

    bye bye david :(

    OK.

    Here in the UK we chage the hour on 26th Oct - in the US taras says it's 2nd Nov

    I remember the 'rule' as 'Spring forward - Fall back'

    So for me in four weeks time it won't be 6PM (BST) but 5PM (GMT)

    AS for subject - I think next week will start on the Second Series openner of the SJAs - whether do talk about Merlin after may just depend on how many in the room will have been able to catch SJAs and comment.

    So Romana it should be safe to come on next week - at least for the first part.

    Cheers, daveac

    CIA from last Sunday - done as a Skype call - has now been edited and uploaded by Ian - TheSixthDoctor.

    A few of the CIA crew chat about the start of Merlin on BBC 1 here in the UK.

    The episode contains spoilers if you have not seen the show.

    There will be a chance to chat about Merlin either at the end of this coming Sunday's chat about Sarah Jane Adventures (depending on time etc.) or on an up-coming CIA show.

    Cheers, daveac
