Two dudes blogging and podcasting about the San Jose Sharks, straight from sunny California.

Welcome to the new Dudes On Hockey, which takes care of all your San Jose Sharks podcasting needs, and hopefully much of your San Jose Sharks blogging needs.  For other great San Jose Sharks blogs, see the blogroll on the right.  Some new things to think about:

  1. Threaded comments!  Just click the “Reply” link beneath anyone’s comment, and you can reply to that person.
  2. Easy sharing.  If you click on an individual post, you will see some sharing links at the bottom which enables you to quickly share the post on facebook, twitter, or a number of other sites.
  3. Synergy.  You can get the podcast feeds and the blog feed (which contain the podcasts) separately.  Click on the links there on the top right to see what’s what.  In the course of this conversion and upgrade, I had to change how the podcasts get posted here, which changes the feed link.  I did some things to hopefully make it seamless for all of you, but if you happen to not get podcasts in your player a week or two from now, visit back and update your podcast feed.  I will post more on that if/when it happens.
  4. More control.  DOH has its own host, and we have full access to do whatever we want, be it look-and-feel or features.  If there are things you want, or don’t like, we have the ability to change those things.  Within reason.  And no, “write better posts” doesn’t count.  We all know we’re not doing that.

    Glad you moved, dudes. The other web-site was down all too frequently in October and it was irritating as hell when I’d want to comment after reading the post in my google reader and be unable to.

    Now if you install “subscribe to comments” WordPress plugin, I’ll feel right at home.

      Whoops. I had to disable all the plugins to upgrade the WP version, and forgot to re-activate that one. Activated now, and thanks for reminding me.

    There seems to be a distinct lack of teal on this site… I’m just saying.

    Also, keep up the good work guys. It’s good stuff. Does this use wordpress for comments?

    • Mike says:

      Yes, this is wordpress comments, I’m just taking advantage of the 2.7 features to get threading and the gravatars you see. And what, the teal in the logo isn’t good enough for you? 🙂

      • Evilducks says:

        There’s always room for more teal.

        The wordpress answer was fairly obvious as soon as I posted. 🙂

        Threading is so very handy. Have fun at the game tonight, Pav’s is back!

    any predictions or insights on tonight’s big match up?

    I like the new format also BTW…
