As of March 1st we will be breaking the previous URL for subscribing to the podcast. Your podcatcher must be pointed to http://feeds.feedburner.com/LISNewsNetcasts to continue to receive the program. That target is already live and active so it may be used immediately.

LISTen: An LISNews.org Podcast -- Episode #146

Over the past week Erie Looking Productions has unsuccessfully grappled with a massive reduction in computing power. Two computers dying within days of each other is not a good thing. An annotated round-up of links from the slush pile is presented in this post while the audio brings an old-time radio classic.

With luck we'll be fully recovered operationally next week.

LISTen: An LISNews.org Podcast -- Episode #148

From this week's script:

To you, dear listeners, this has some impact. The first is that any read counts on the site for any particular post should be regarded as utterly fictitious. The second is that you really should be using the FeedBurner target for the podcast rather than subscribing directly to the LISNews PHP-generated feed. The third is that our presence in the iTunes Music Store is a bit off-kilter for now and the downloading of individual episodes through that source is not recommended.

That whole discussion of the weirdness on LISNews over the past week as well as an expansive news round-up can be found in this week's episode.

Service Announcement: The Week Before Easter 2011

"This is a service announcement that bridges both LISTen: An LISNews.org Program and Ubuntu Ohio's Burning Circle. First lets pause for a word from the Internal Revenue Service."

[IRS PSA: Last Minute Filing Tips]

"In light of this being Holy Week there is no regular episode this week for either program. Operational constraints at Erie Looking Productions also prevented the production of normal programming. It should be noted that the April 30th date for the Ubuntu Ohio state rally is scrubbed and there will be a meeting on Internet Relay Chat on Wednesday night to discuss the matter. For librarians in Ohio and surrounding states, your attendance at the Ohio rally may be quite worthwhile to learn about Linux while also building community partnerships.

"The slushpile of links this week has been posted to the relevant part of gopherspace and librarians have a special challenge to see if they can still access that arcane part of the Internet. Consider this a learning activity to assess your capability to access the fairly broad spectrum of communication modalities the Internet offers. An appropriate URL will be posted to the show post.

"With that being said, have a good Holy Week and we will be back in seven days."

The song "Ed and Elaine's Promenade" is from their upcoming album "Nexus of the Ley Lines" and was composed by Mister Engineer.
