This should be fixed now. Turns out vimeo changed their API and also their standard URLs. I've updated The D-Word to support these changes.
9 minutes Mr Gerard – time to pull the finger out.
Damn them. We're lucky to have you, Peter.
Hey folks – this has come up in the Works in Progress thread: "what is the HIDDEN SECTION?" – I don't quite understand the purpose – aren't all postings visible to all who are logged in as pros? Am I missing an important protocol?
Yes. It's all visible to professionals. By putting something in the hidden section (link directly below posting box) it takes one further click for the reader to see it. We generally encourage really long posts that maybe aren't your own (e.g. an article or job posting you are passing along) to go in the hidden section. Some folks use it for more sensitive information. Many here use it for comedic impact. But if a professional clicks, yes, it's all available to see.
Just to clarify, people in WIP are using it now so that others who may not want to read their input, or who may want to watch the piece without reading the thoughts of others first don't have to see their feedback. Blame Margot.
In reply to Marj Safinia's post on Thu 9 Feb 2012 :
Thanks – yes – it makes sense and it's quite sophisticated...
Sorry about the downtime over the last day or so. Nothing to do with us. This is what we were up against.
As a consequence, Peter is preparing a move to a different host which should give us better overall performance.
First stage of the move completed. The database is now in a different state. I'll move the uploads later tonight and then we'll be completely in new surrounds...
There may still be some intermittent issues. Please bear with us!
