News – Technical issues: video problems fixed!

Dear friends, dear visitors,

we are glad to inform you that finally, after a few weeks, Dailymotion technical team (our videos’ hosting provider) succeeded in fixing the problem encountered by some video-interviews on our website.

Since the technical problems were worse than initially thought, solving the issue at 100% required longer than supposed, and for this we are deeply sorry.

We thank you for your patience and hope that you – ever increasing in numbers – may continue to follow our work .

Ciao.

News – Technical issues: problems with some videos

Dear friends, dear visitors,

we want to inform you that unfortunately, since a few days, we are experiencing some issues with our videos’ hosting provider. This means that you could have problems to watch some of our video-interviews: some could be indicated as “under coding procedure”, others could be shown just in low quality.

We are deeply sorry for this inconvenience and are in continuous contact with Dailymotion (our hosting provider) for having all fixed and back to normal. We know that Dailymotion technical team is currently working hard to resolve the issue as soon as possible.

We will keep you informed and we seize this occasion to sincerely thank you for your patience.

Ciao.

News – Website’s update: Website restyling!

We are pretty sure that our most frequent visitors have already noticed it, but for those who, perhaps for the summer ongoing, have not come to visit us in the last week, we decided to publish this article, just to inform them about our latest website restyling activities.

We started by updating the background image. Our choice fell on a picture with a beautiful blue sky, crossed here and there by some 'Sailers in the blue' (Canon EOS 5D + Canon 24-105mm zoom lens - year 2014)clouds. We shot such a photo in the Roman countryside, in April last year, by using a Canon 24-105 mm zoom  lens, mounted on a Canon EOS 5D.

Then, we moved on to the image of the header (which is the one that all of us notice more!). We thought that the basic idea of our website – that is, the veil between us and the‘Boundaries’ (Canon EOS 5D + Canon 24-105mm zoom lens – year 2013) “spiritual dimension” is sometimes ripped – could be well represented by the image of great black clouds that, while darkening the sky, let beams of light filter in some points, inviting people to imagine what hides behind there. Even this photo we shot by using a Canon EOS 5D camera, mounting a Canon 24-105 mm zoom lens (countryside around Rome, November 2013).

After all this, we moved on from aesthetic aspects to functional features.

We decided to include, in the upper right area of our pages, some buttons that may allow you to directly access our pages on the following social media:

In addition, we decided to create (last position in the Menu) the item “Support”, in which we included, just for now, only the two pages “Contact us” and “Sitemap”.

As for the Contact us page, it is a form with already defined fields, that allows anybContact usody to send us, pretty easily, comments, requests for clarification, questions, and everything in a confidential manner (we will reply to you asap).

As for the Sitemap page, it is a mapping of all the pages and articles that haveSitemap been published on the website (it will be regularly updated with the new publications). The most useful features are certainly the possibilities of having an overview of the website structure and of being able to access, in a simpler way, what someone is interested in, directly by clicking on its title.

In order to access these two pages more easily, we decided  to create, at the bottom of each page of our website, four direct links, two for the Italian version and two for that in English.

In addition, we have added to the right side section of our pages the following widgets:

  • “Be notified – Ricevi aggiornamenti”: anybody can subscribe to our automatic service of e-mail notification for any new article being published (by default we have included all the e-mail addresses of those who, until today, have created an account and/or have posted a comment; of course, if not interested, anyone can unsubscribe to such a service by clicking on the link at the bottom of each notification e-mail received)
  • “Online visitors – Visitatori online”: a rotating Earth globe shows, in real time, the Countries from which people are currently connected to the website
  • “Visitors by Country – Visitatori per Paese”: a world map shows the flags of those Countries from which people connected to the website over time
  • “Rewards – Riconoscimenti”: you can find a list of those rewards our website got in Italy

At last, we highlight that, in order to post a comment on our webpages, you will have first to subscribe to our website and your account will have to be authorized by us (for this reason, please fill all the fields of our subscription form).

We hope that all the changes we have made may help your navigation through our pages be even more compelling than before. Thus, we expect you to be more and more in number!

See you soon!

News – Website’s update

During the last weeks we have slowed down a bit with the publication of new stuff, but we didn’t certainly stand with folded hands! …

In fact, under the push of so many of you who have written to us asking for clarifications about the impossibility, at times, to see our videos (problem caused by the fact that all Apple devices but even devices with Android OS, recently updated, do not support Adobe Flash, which has been used for our video interviews), we decided to take a radical initiative. This is why we have decided to move all our videos to a different provider: Dailymotion! Only yesterday we completed our task. For those of you who would like to visit it, this is the internet address of our page on Dailymotion: http://www.dailymotion.com/thresholds. Even there you will find all our available videos.

Now you can enjoy all of our video interviews, including those that will follow from now on, on virtually any devices: PCs and Macs, tablets and iphones, but also smartphones and even more.

And that’s not all! The videos’ display quality, we set as default, is HD Ready, but now you can choose a different one (Full HD, SD, etc.). This will allow you to really enjoy our productions, as far as the speed of the internet connection at your disposal is concerned.

So, we made big changes!

Awaiting the new videos that we’re finishing to prepare and that we will shortly begin to publish on the website, we suggest you to watch again all our video-interviews in order to enjoy them in the new available format and options.

Let us know what you think about all this.

See you soon.
