Well it is day three of the brand new DNR Show and it has been a real mixed bag for sure.

For some people, it has been a great experience. The show sounds good. No log-in issues. Got their Day One shirt ordered. Boom. For others, some issues.

Our biggest issue happened on Monday when our whole site crashed at the start of the show. Our site was slammed with more than 1.1 million hits in the first hour alone. Now, that is hits, not people, but still. It was thousands of people trying to get to us all at once. And many, many more than we anticipated on our first day.

On the one hand this was very gratifying. Finally Romaine’s Believe Receive was coming true! But on the other it was troubling. Here are all these people who want to hear the show and can’t. What if they get mad and just walk away and never come back?

So far everyone has been very nice and very patient. And after we stripped down our site and better prepared our server company, we still had some outages during the second night of shows. So we made the executive decision to not wait until the weekend and immediately move the show and site to a new sever overnight.

This has meant new error messages and new problems for people but hopefully these will all be temporary. The site is coming back online by region so we expect by the start of our third show that everyone who wants to listen will be able to listen and the site will be up and running smoothly the whole time. Plus the whole experience has inspired a new, hilarious Day Two shirt.

And yes, once we are sure the site is stable and running as it should, we will bring back the chat room because that turned out to be insanely popular. In the meantime, post your comments on our front page wall or tweet using the hashtag #DNRShow!

We will have a streaming archive of the most recent shows up by this weekend and the past two shows are available for download now on the Audio Archive page in case you missed them.

Thanks for taking a chance on us. We know the first couple of days have been rocky for sure! But we are working hard to deliver the craptastic show you have always loved. Thanks for your patience.

    Take a chance on you two??? I had no doubt that you will be back in full force. So with that said, THANK YOU!

    We are not ‘fair weather listeners’, We will ride out all your technical problems no matter how many days it takes, because we appreciate how ‘real’ you both are towards each other and to us-your faithful followers. I myself listened for ten years. Romaine had just started dating her drill sargent and I was instantly hooked. When the show was cancelled I had to tell my therapist how upset I was. Thank you all so much (ADD Jeff included for his help) for going in this direction. DNR 2.0 will be controlled by Derek and Romaine only, not by someone with a different agenda.

    I am never impressed when things go smoothly and perfectly. Yes, that is always the ideal, but often never the reality. What impresses me is how you deal with things when they go horribly wrong. And, I am impressed with how you guys have handled this situation. There was no way to anticipate these problems, but it is clear how hard you have been working to correct everything, all while being truly regretful these problems are occurring and apologetic at the same time. Though I haven’t had any problems, I am impressed with how you are handling this with humility, remorse, sarcasm, and lots of humor, and just confirms my commitment to DNR. Keep up the good work, the three shows so far have been FANTASTIC!

      We had an issue with the upload last night. Jeff is working on it as we speak and it should be up later this afternoon. Sorry about that!

    Well thanks for ALL your HARD work DNR 2.1 team. Look at the bright side, since you aren’t moving over to a new server this weekend Romaine can spend more time with her wife and daughter, Derek can go to every Panda Express in NY and NJ to look for office space for DNR 3.0, and Jeff can go home and SLEEP. Have a great show.
