Audio now fixed and the reasons for them for those who want to know

We’re re-posting the original audio post onto the blog and should be live shortly. (note-It now is) We thought we’d share what we found out as we panicked to find out why 3 computers played it fine, and 3 others didn’t while another showed the file as being “corrupt.”

Here’s what we found out and think it’s worth sharing for those who also have blogs, websites, etc.

The audio was originally loaded in MP4 format. No problem most would say (and so did we) yet what we found was for Mozzilla Firefox it doesn’t play. Safari, yes, Google Chrome, yes, but for whatever the reason Firefox doesn’t. It was one of those things we never even gave a second thought.

This is a great example of why (as Mark likes to say) we all need to shop our own stores the way our customers may and see if there are issues. This issue seemed non existent on some computers as we were bouncing back and forth between older audio and the new that was working fine till it was tried on another. i.e., The one running Safari was fine with both, the other running Firefox played one but not the other.

After some hair pulling and and desk banging it was finally noticed: “Did anyone check the format?”

Silence was all that was heard next.

To quote Forest Gump, “Stupid is, as stupid does.”

Thanks for understanding, and here’s to possibly saving someone from the same.

Cheers,

Coming Soon To The Subscriber Only Section

People have been asking about the audio and other features that will be coming up in the “subscriber only” sections so here’s a sample. This is what the subject matter in “Thoughts For Today’s Entrepreneur” will be sounding like. They’ll be other forms of audio also, but this is just a start. I’ll post other samples as they become available. As always feel free to share however please – don’t/never spam anyone! When the subscriber sections become “live” they’ll be available to subscribers of the blog only, with no “sharing” features available.

Remember subscribing is easy and Free! And as a reminder: We wont sell, rent, or share your email. Period.

All you need is a valid email address, nothing more. But you will need to be a subscriber to access. As It’s been said many times and we wish to make it worth while, “membership has its privileges.”

Below is the first installment of what is coming soon. Thanks!
