Hello,

To whom it may concern. I was finally able to see the Paintings from Episode 2 but only by going to the addresses in the Episode on my desktop computer. Going to http://www.stephenfry.com/painting1 works fine and properly redirects to http://www.stephenfry.com/painting1.html. Going to Painting 2, as I think someone else mentioned, does not. I had to actually type http://www.stephenfry.com/painting2.html to see that one. That should be easy to fix in an .htaccess file on the server.

However, the main point of this post is that these paintings are not visible at all on my iPod touch, which would be the same on the iPhone, or on my Nokia mobile phone. On my Nokia going to the addresses mentioned in the Episode don't work at all. I have to admit I haven't tried adding the .html there though. On my iPod touch though, it goes to the Mobile version of the website, which is mostly just the blog, and gives an error that the page is not available. Considering the prevalence of iPhones and iPod touch devices I would recommend you update the site so that any other items that are part of the mystery are visible on these devices. Especially since I can be listening to the Episode and going to the web page at the same time.

Loving the series though, haven't been able to do all the research on Ep 3 yet though. Looking forward to more episodes and I do understand there might be delays, as mentioned by Mr Fry at the beginning of Ep 3.

Regards,
David Devaney, Jr.

Hello,

To whom it may concern. I have tried the following links ut to no avail
http://www.stephenfry.com/painting1 http://www.stephenfry.com/painting1.html http://www.stephenfry.com/painting2.html
I get the following message :-

We're sorry, the page you're looking for can't be found.
It is possible you typed the address incorrectly, or that the page no longer exists.

Any ideas ?

Regards

Chris

Same here. The family was really enjoying the radio show on our road trip, went to look at the picture on the iPhone ... all went a bit pear-shaped with the 404s. Hope it's fixed soon ...

I've just checked iPhone, iPod touch, HTC phone and my laptop - wasn't successful to open the links

How odd. Hmph.

I have been unable to see the two pictures described in episode 2 even after trying your suggestion. I first tried on my iPhone and then on my laptop but as yet cannot see the pictures which is very frustrating. I don't know who I can contact for help. The series is fabulous and I'm really enjoying it.
