This week's episode is hurriedly uploaded as Time Warner Cable suffered a regional outage immediately after we concluded recording. Contingency plans began executing until access came back up. Infrastructure along Lake Erie's south shore should not provide as much excitement as it does when it fails.

This week's episode provides a brief follow-up to last week and presents a news miscellany. It is specifically noted in the program that the Air Staff is currently best reached by hitting the contact form and selecting podcast producers instead of via comments left on LISNews. At the least we know e-mails sent via the contact form will forward to team member cell phones.
