The NASCAR Awards show was actually not as lame as I expected. It was still good for some laughs though.
If you joined us for the Live Blog tonight, I thank you and apologize to you. We had technical difficulties (almost felt like a live radio show) at about the 10:45 pm mark and eventually had to shut the Live Blog down. It was fun while it lasted and the folks at Cover It Live were great to work with. I'm pretty sure that the problem was on my end and we are looking forward to live blogging again soon.
Again, thanks to everybody.
UPDATE: Cover It Live got to the bottom of our problem and it was, not surprisingly, caused on our end. These guys are fantastic to work with - especially for someone as digitally challenged as me. Their software is so easy to use that I just got a little lazy naming an image file. Here's Keith from CIL's explanation to me:
The problem was the title of one of the images you stored in your media library had a “ in the title. The software normally catches those kinds of unacceptable characters and doesn’t let you save them. Except on that one darn line I guess we missed our quality assurance test. The “ believe it or not, made the software freak out and stop talking to the database (that’s why with banks they don’t let you use funny characters in your username).
Anyway, it’s fixed. First time that’s ever happened. Sorry it was on your shift. Appreciate your support to us with your readers. We’re putting in the fix in the morning so it doesn’t happen to anyone else.
Stay tuned. I just wish that I could come up with a name for our live blogs - maybe OPR 3000. Nah.
