Quick note that we've just upgraded Popup Cantonese. Our new server is located in Los Angeles where the Asia-Pacific trans-Pacific Internet channels connect with the US mainland, so it should be much faster for everyone in Hong Kong and Asia now, and possibly also faster for everyone in the States too.

We think we've ironed out most of the problems, although there may be a couple of minor bugs persisting. If you notice any issues yourself, please drop a note in this thread and we'll take care of them as soon as we can.

On the transcript page, the audio doesn't play. I went to, clicked "Transcript", then tried clicking one of the play buttons next to each sentence.

Also, after highlighting and clicking a word, a popup window appear with details about the word, but I cannot dismiss the popup. Clicking the "x" to close the popup window does nothing.

I'm running Mac OS 10.6.8 and I get the problem on both Chrome 16 and Safari 5.

I'm in Los Angeles, in case that matters.

Hey David,

For the subscriber iTunes feeds, I noticed it now says "Popup Chinese" instead of "Popup Cantonese" and this makes my iTunes mix my Popup Cantonese podcasts together with Popup Chinese.

I am having trouble accessing your popupspanish section for some reason.

Other than that I must say this is one impressive site.

The sky could be the limit eventually the site could branch out into other languages like Thai. Malay or even Arabic and so on.
