LISTen: An 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.

FeedSync Test

The nuclear option is being employed on the FeedBurner side of things to realign a major feed. For those getting this as an e-mail digest, apologies for the repeat e-mail. For those seeing this in iTunes...I hope this fixes things...

LISTen: An 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. From the slush pile: (Click "Read more" to see the links)
