Due to the impending Super Bowl match-up on February 7th, it is anticipated that connectivity will be quite impaired for Erie Looking Productions at its rural operations site in extreme northeastern Ohio. Under optimal conditions not tied to major events like the Super Bowl, our cable broadband access has roughly one-third the throughput a conventional cable broadband connection in the United States would possess. We expect that access will be impaired during and immediately after the game. Recognizing such, LISTen #106 will not be released on February 8th as we will most likely repeatedly time-out during upload attempts.
Columns will still be released as deemed appropriate in the intervening time. These will be posted as text posts with Adobe Acrobat files injected into the podcast stream as enclosures so as to not leave podcast listeners without something.
Barring any further disruptions, LISTen #106 is anticipated to be released on or near 0500 UTC on February 15th. For those wanting to catch up on listening after ALA Mid-Winter might have put you behind, LISTen 105 remains available as does the column Defining Value.
