Interview with Brendon in Autosimsport Vol5 Iss2

Discussion in 'Bob's Track Builder' started by spamsac, Aug 3, 2009.

  1. Just a heads up for all of you BTB users to say that there will be an interview with Brendon regarding BTB's past, present and future in the upcoming issue of Autosimsport magazine.

    Brendon very kindly agreed to do an interview with me a month or two back, and over the course of a week or so we exchanged emails back and forth covering some of the many facets of BTB.

    The magazine was originally meant to go live today, but due to people having lives, families etc., it will now (hopefully!) be released tomorrow. I'm posting this now since I'll be busy tomorrow and haven't slept since Friday afternoon, so I might not get a chance to post when it's finally uploaded!

    The magazine will be available from the main page: http://www.autosimsport.net/index2/index.php
    An announcement will also be made on our new Twitter feed when the issue is available: http://twitter.com/autosimsport

    It will possibly not contain too much that is news to many of the veteran BTB users here, but either way I saw it as a good opportunity to spread the word of this great program. I hope you all enjoy it.

    Cheers,
    Simon

    MySQL database seems up again :thumb: but the site is mega slow

    Edit: crashed again...
     
  7. Yes, unfortunately a site that doesn't see a huge amount of traffic doesn't like the sudden influx when an issue goes live.

    Last issue had 60,000 downloads I believe, so there's usually a fair strain put on the site when the new issues go live. Hopefully it will settle down and people can access without problems.

    Yes but the Autosimsport site is always incredible slow on my side, also on non release days. Nevertheless it was a great read again
     
  9. Yes, the site's not always terribly consistent unfortunately. Thanks for the positive words.
