Friday Releases and Updates

UpdatesWell, it is Friday once again, and that means new content for the site, and a couple of updates to the old code as well (starting to become kind of a trend).

The latest episode of The Other Chats is up and ready for downloads. This week the panel is talking about Human Rights.

The next chapter of The Book of Ezeikel is also up on the site for your reading pleasure. This week the chapter is entitled The Device (kind of foreboding).

Finally, we also made some little changes in the code of the site. Presently this just consists of dynamic page titles being added for better SEO purposes. We are having a company meeting tonight to discuss the future direction we will take the site, so expect more changes coming soon!

Social Overhaul

Social BandwagonAs you can see over in our connect area, we have given a fair overhaul to how we handle social connection. We have even integrated the ShareThis to expand your options even further than the standard affair.

So, help us promote the site across your social platforms and help OMP reach an even broader audience than before!

Monday Release and Updates

Well, it's Monday, so that means we have some releases that we need to make available to all of you. So, in accordance with our release schedule, we have another chapter of The White Lights available for your reading pleasure.

Along with that, we also have a brand new release available for you in the Publications section as well, and it is associated with one of our Podcasts (specifically Obesity: The True American Dream). Brian has a food journal that he is maintaining to go along with the show, and we have the first installment of that up and ready for you.

Finally, I did a very small update by adding in a Like button for all of you Facebook users out there (I know there are a lot of you). We still have no real intent of setting up a social home on Facebook like we have on Google, but we will let you share out our content at least.

Friday Release Available

We've gotten our normal Friday releases (The Other Chats and The Book of Ezeikel) up on the site a bit earlier than normal since 3/4 of the staff will be heading to Washington, D.C. for the Reason Rally. So, feel free to grab it now and enjoy the early release - we'll try and get some content made up from the Rally to share with you guys when we get back!

Have a great weekend!

Welcome to the Wasteland

BackerWe are very proud to announce that as of today, we are officially involved in the funding of Wasteland 2 by inXile Entertainment. Funding has been provided thus far by myself (and, as such, Sam), though other members of the staff are currently working their finances to see if they can also provide funding.

We would like to encourage any of our loyal fans who are interested in videogames, and more specifically RPG games, to help support this project and make it become a reality! This game has been one of the most desired sequal in decades.

This is potentially a new era for videogame development, and this is your chance to get in on the ground level. All details can be found in the link provided in this news post.

New Publications and Updates

We are pleased to release another chapter in The White Lights by our very own Jake Quinn. You can find it in the usual place, and if you enjoy it be sure to subscribe to the RSS.

Other than all of that, I made a quick sweep through and have cleared up any bugs around the site that had been reported since the upgrade. I sincerely apologize for any issues folks may have faced due to any of these, but they should all be clear now. Of course, as always, if you notice anything don't hesitate to let us know.

Speaking of letting us know, I am working on an update to the Contact Page that will include form email options to better encourage and simplify the process of getting into contact with us here at OMP.

In closing, never be shy about contacting or interacting with us. The company has a Google+ Page easily available on the right, as do all of our staff members (and many members of our talent do as well). We also recently added Google+ Pages for both The Other Chats and Obesity: The True American Dream with more coming in the next few days (including an official fan page for our old show, The Quinn Experience.

Some Big Changes

We have decided to go around the entire site, and we have given it quite the facelift. You will certainly notice that we have decided to add a few more images around the place (mainly in the form of buttons), and you may have noticed that some links to the site are broken now. As for the links, we do apologize about that, but it was a needed step to keep this place moving in the correct direction - and we did it sooner rather than later at the very least.

If you are a fan of syndication, I am sure you have already noticed the expanded options available for RSS (and Email Subscriptions are stll available, but they only cover the Site News feed. Now you can feel free to customize your RSS experience with us exactly how you want. This may have possibly caused some confusion with the Site News feed for folks who had been previously subscribed to it (the only feed we previously had available).

We also have a news archive now, so that this page will be a little more clutter free than we were headed towards. I have not automated this aspect of the site yet (read: not dynamic yet), but it will suffice for the time being and require only a little extra effort on my part. The link, as it is now, will always be available below the oldest post on the news page.

And finally, we have a number of new items for you to enjoy. The Other Chats has a brand new episode out on Climate Change. Obesity: The True American Dream has a teaser episode available for your listening or downloading pleasure. We have also launched the Publications section of the site, with our own staff member, Jake Quinn, having started two stories that he will be releasing weekly moving forward.

Regarding The Other Chats, this will continue to be released every Friday. Obesity: The True American Dream will start releasing episodes in about four (4) weeks time, and will be scheduled for Sunday. The Book of Ezeikel, one of the stories by Jake Quinn, will be releasing normally on Saturday, starting next weekend, and his other story entitled The White Lights will start releasing on Monday (starting this coming Monday).
