SuiteTake Changes, And The Future

2009-0629_header

While posts have been a bit hit or miss lately due to our heavy work load, that doesn’t mean that we’re not getting some work done under the hood! I wanted to do a quick post to let you know some of the not so obvious changes we’ve made.

Videos
Because of the increasing demand on our server, videos are now hosted by Blip.tv. One of the new advantages is that you can now more easily play the video within the post, or watch it full screen. All video is also available in multiple formats so you can also download clips to your computer.

iTunes
We now have a SuiteTake.com podcast on iTunes. For now the feed includes videos that we post in their original h.264 format, but in the not so distant future it will also include the new SuiteTake.com podcast. More on that later this summer.

iPhone
Most of our videos are now formatted to play on the iPhone as well. There are a few that still need to be updated, but most of the older ones have already been converted.

Speaking of the iPhone, we also have a new iPhone interface that makes viewing the site simple, clean and easy on your phone.

A Comment about Comments
As we say in most of the posts, we welcome comments. And we mean it, good and bad. We don’t claim to be the experts on everything, we do make mistakes and we too are learning new things all the time. We expect to learn from your experiences as well, not just share our own. I can’t tell you the number of times that I learn something by reading a post that one of the other contributers wrote – and I work with these people all the time.

Recommended reading for the less mature commenters.

However, one thing we will not tolerate is rudeness, the use of bad language and just flat out being mean spirited. While overall the responses we receive are very professional, there are a few people who are obviously deficient in the area of human interaction (they know who they are, and we know who they are).

One requirement that we have for all posts is that they come from a valid email address. Using a phony address is akin to screaming an insult at somebody and then running away like a child. If you have something to say, own your words or keep them to yourself.

More to Come
We have some great things planned for the upcoming weeks, so stay tuned! Thanks for your continued support.
