With the release of epsiode 15 today (Monday Feb 20) @ 5pm EST, we will crack 2 million downloads of the show.
This is quite astounding as we announced 1M downloads only 2 weeks ago on Feb 5.
The popularity of the show has caught us by surprise and we have been struggling to keep the server primed with enough bandwidth to accommodate the huge demand.
Sean, Matt and I, as well as the LabRats team, are delighted and frightened at the same time. ;-> To accommodate tonight’s launch we will be adding a server feed at www.libsyn.com to accommodate the 320 MPEG4 iPod version of the file which has been three quarters of our traffic, however in recent days the WMV files have been doing very very well.
Ep15 is a food demo that uses marshmallows and a blowtorch to show how CDs and DVDs work. If that’s seems familiar it is. I did the demo on Call for Help, however ep15 takes that CFH demo and extends it to 15 minutes and covers CDs, DVDs, and Blue ray and HD DVD. we also added TicTacs to the demo to a fiery result.
We are actively looking for a sponsor and are talking to several companies about this so that we can continue to bring you millions more downloads in the the coming months. More new on that soon.
