Alternate download location … and subscribing on Zune

leave a comment »

A few people have had issues downloading partial files since the WordPress 2.7 upgrade. We assume this issue will work itself out, but in the meantime, you can also download the podcast files from http://tinyurl.com/startupsuccess.

Also, if you would like to subscribe from Zune, just add the feed https://startuppodcast.wordpress.com/feed/ to your podcast subscriptions.

Finally, some people have suggested that the levels could be evened out more … I will improve that starting on the next podcast, #9 (soon!).

Thanks for your all your support – please keep the feedback coming!

One Day – today – 50% sale. Times two!

with 2 comments

Jeff Schoolcraft was posted this morning at The Business of Software Forum that my publisher Apress is doing today a one day ebook sale on my first book, Micro-ISV: From Vision to Reality. You can get it here for $10 instead of $20.

I think this is a cool idea on Apress’ part, so I’m going to match it. So for the next day or so, you can get my ebook, MicroISV Sites that Sell! for $9.50 instead of $19.00. Just go to the ebook page on 47hats, page down to MicroISV Sites that Sell! section, click Add to Cart, enter the code “onedaysale” and buy it. Enjoy!
