Anybody know what's with ZBS?

For the last couple of days I've been unable to connect with www.zbs.org to download the latest Fourth Tower of Inverness episode. Anybody know if they've gone down or something? I keep getting timed out.

Just recently downloaded stuff from them. Maybe they're having server problems. ...?

Dunno - just tried again and nothing. If you can get at them and I can't, I need any Fourth Tower episodes past #36, and since they only keep 'em up for a week, I'd REALLY appreciate if you could collect them for me until I can get at them again...

We are watching the situation too
I was delighted to announce on my blog that the Fourth Tower was to appear on iTunes in its entirety. http://howesound.wordpress.com/2007/09/11/the-fourth-tower-of-inverness-free-on-itunes/ (http://howesound.wordpress.com/2007/09/11/the-fourth-tower-of-inverness-free-on-itunes/)

Of course folks are complaining (to me!). The problem is compounded because each episode is up for only a week, so we are hoping the problem will be fixed before some in the series evaporate forever.

Re: We are watching the situation too
I just managed to log on and have numbers 37 and 38 downloading: I'm hoping whatever was wrong has been fixed. There isn't any mention of a problem on the site; if it goes down again it might be a good idea to contact them directly. I've just downloaded their contact info from http://www.zbs.org/catalog/contact_us.php; if you can you may wish to do likewise just in case.

BTW, since LJ lacks a method for entering names if the poster hasn't got a LJ account, you may want to consider signing your posts within the message itself. That way they won't have to sit there unread until I get around to approving them. :)

And that'll teach me to make posts late at night/early in the morning - signing it won't help a bit; I'll still have to approve anything from "anonymous". That said, I'd still like people who post to my LJ to identify themselves, though in this case the link you included was quite enough to figure out who you were. :)
