Archive for April, 2007

Late last night I decided to finally forward the http://www.animeroundtable.com domain into the blog. So to those of you coming that way, welcome to the new look site. As you can see, it is still very much under construction. We’ll be adding stuff as we go. But the first thing you should see below this post is the newest episode, Digest #3.

So my thanks go out to the Visser Brothers who run Comic Den in Mississauga and have maintained the archive site. They still actually host the show episodes themselves, and will continue to do so. If you still want to see the archive site (as it will still be maintained) click here. A link to their store site will be placed in the sidebar soon. We are very grateful for their continued support, and they will remain as the show’s flagship sponsor for the foreseeable future.  So we can continue to say that the Anime Roundtable will remain “…on the Comic Den.com”.

If you’re in Mississauga, visit them before they close up their retail operations on June 10th.

If you’ve noticed at the top of the sidebar, there’s now a link to subscribe to the show using whatever you like to use to “catch” podcasts. This is a new Feedburner link. Overall I find it okay and simple to maintain, but not quite what I am looking for. It only allows people to aggregate the mp3 versions of episodes, and not the iTunes/iPod enhanced versions. And it’ll only list the previous 12 episodes, and for the most part incomplete show notes.

To that end, the iTunes feed that has always been around on both the Comic Den’s archive site and on the iTunes Store, will be kept and added to the blog later today. The only problem is that it is more of a pain to maintain, so more often than not it’ll be the last thing updated. The big plus is that it’s far more detailed, will give you a complete listing of all episodes and show notes, and will give you access to both the mp3 and enhanced versions of the show.  The enhanced version is something we use a lot, so if you have iTunes or something that plays m4a (Apple mp4) files, this is worth downloading.

But here’s a question, iTunes users, do you want me to keep the mp3 versions on this feed? E-mail me to let us know.

Either way, you’ll also see the new episodes, with both version, right here on the blog as they come out too, and that’s not too hard to maintain.

The vacation is over. This time around we’ll talk about developments and licenses coming from Anime Boston, then we’ll try to predict the future in terms of licenses for the rest of the summer. All this in a big bite size of a digest.

Blog Plans

Priority for today will be to upload Digest #3 and add entries for all of the past episodes this season.

Things to do in the longterm:

-remake the feeds, specifically to separate the iPod enhanced versions and the regular mp3 versions.

-give writting access to the other show regulars.

-general polishing up for visitors.

-forwarding http://www.animeroundtable.com to this blog

Hopefully most of it will be done by Anime North. Please bear with us.

Well I hope you guys can be patient with this. But here’s the first look at the show’s official blog. As soon as I can figure out how to use WordPress a little bit, we’ll start putting up older episodes. Please look forward to it.
