Taktaba now available in low-resolution!

For your downloading convenience, Taktaba is now available in low resolution.

The regular version of the Taktaba podcast is formatted for iPods. I chose this format because it is the only one that will play on iPods, and also because when you play it on a computer monitor, the picture is large enough to follow.

However, since the podcasts are so long, the files are pretty large, and some people have had trouble downloading them. Sometimes the partially-downloaded files will still play, but have subtle problems, like out of sync audio or a truncated video (i.e., the end being missing).

So here are lower-resolution versions of the podcast, which should be easier to download. As with the full version, all podcasts are made available under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommerical-No-Derivative-Works license. This means that you are welcome to share it in its entirety for non-commercial purposes, as long as you credit me as the creator. If you want to use it in a way that is not covered under the license, don't be shy about asking me!

This blog exists ONLY as a home for the low-res file downloads and podcast feed. Please keep an eye on the main Taktaba page for additional information and articles, or to join the discussion in the comments.

In fact, you never actually have to visit this site. You can Subscribe in iTunes (coming soon), or watch the main Taktaba page; I'll include links to the low-res versions from there as well.
