Please Help Us Test the New Novell Open Audio Site

The new Novell Open Audio site is online, but we have not replaced the old site with it, because we’re not sure it’s 100% ready to go.

So, I am asking any willing members of our listener community to help us test it out. We’re looking for suggestions on the look and feel, and whether all the interactions work well or not.

If you find any issues, please let me know by commenting on this post. Thanks for your help!

  1. Too sterile, doesn’t match the attitude of the show … needs more cowbell. 😀

  2. quick comment.

    your blog uses the whole screen width.

    the new NOA site leaves a ton of screenspace wasted on the right. something to do with the layouts being limited to physical size and not a percentage of screen perhaps?

    its a bit annoying. hope this helps.


  3. If I were to go by the old site, then the Upcoming Interviews feed needs to be updated with the Cypress with Jason Williams interview.

    Also added the link to the Cool Solutions article for getting RSS feed updates via IM.

  4. G’day Reverend Ted

    Love the NOA podcast. I’ve got two listener requests:
    1. Can you do an update on the iFolder project? It seems to be languishing and I’d be interested to know where this project is going.
    2. There was a recent post on the Novell sponsored Task Juggler project stating that Novell is no longer supporting this FOSS project. Read this post. http://www.taskjuggler.org/FUDforum2/index.php?t=msg&th=3023&start=0&rid=0

    Task Juggler is an extremely useful piece of software and files a much needed gap in the Linux Desktop, Project Management software. Any chance you can investigate and podcast this?

    Keep up the great work – and love your FOSS advocacy.

    Cheers mate!

  5. Ian, if you look at other pages that fall under Novell.com (like NOA’s “old site“) you’ll see they’re all pretty much governed by that screen width.

    Ted, Novell Forge isn’t restricted in this way, it doesn’t even have the “typical” Novell.com header and footer. Could the NOA site be openaudio.novell.com to avoid some of the sterility that Jorge commented on? Especially since several of your episodes so far have been geared toward folks you’d find using Novell Forge.

    I’m not saying use Novell Forge‘s style but see if the NOA web site can break the corporate mold in the same way your podcasst and Novell Forge has. Like Jorge pointed out, let the NOA web site “match the attitude of the show”.

    And I said this a LONG while back COWBELLs instead of stars for the rating system!!

  6. Not sure if this is something WordPress will allow, but comment preview on your blog as well as the new NOA site would be nice. Should cut down on the number of typo’s you correct. 🙂

  7. Okay–I screwed up the ratings/votes interaction and display. Known issue. I think I cannot fix it due to the incomplete AppArmor profile. We’ll fix on Monday.

  8. I too would like to see cowbells for the rating system! And even though this may be a house organ for Novell I would like to see it break the mold of Novell.com as well.

    I also came across a little bit of code that would be great to use. Instead of your little rss icons and only three means of subscribing to the podcast look at http://www.methodize.org/quicksub/whatisthis.html as it allows many more ways to subscribe.
