Addressing Podcast Issues and a New Prize DrawingDecember 19, 2009
So two weeks ago I recorded Episode #42, a great episode to include four books some chat on sock knitting, holiday knitting, spinning and a new-to-me craft, weaving. I also announced the winner of the last prize drawing and shared information on creating your own ‘junk’ tools for spinning and weaving. I really wish you could have heard that particular show, I felt like I was truly back in the saddle.
But you won’t hear it. I was able to upload the show to the server, it showed up in my archives immediately so I wrote a post and clicked ‘publish’. Everything seemed to be going as expected. I ran down to the kitchen to make a pot of tea and when I returned I searched for the show’s feed so that I could distribute the show. The feed was not there. I then logged back in to the server and the show was not there either. It seems to have been swallowed up by the ubiquitous black hole that is the internet.
Not one to overreact too soon, I reluctantly began to start the uploading process over, from scratch. Searching my files, it too was gone. How it could be missing from my computer is truly beyond me, though my DH has a reasonable explanation. DH believes there was a slight power surge, causing my file to disappear from my computer (I am notorious for not saving files in progress). And, since my session was not over within the server, it too vanished.
This coming week I will be recording once again but I can’t bring myself to completely regurgitate the ‘lost’ show. I will review some, if not all, of the books and will share some of the ‘old’ information as well as new information. I will also announce the following:
New Prize Drawing!
This will be one of the next books to be reviewed and has been donated by Random House for this Prize Drawing. Thank You Random House!
