Our apologies, but owing to various confluences of travel, conferences, families, and so forth, we’re not going to be able to record a show this week. We’ll be back next time!
Ah, well, I’m almost caught up. Guess it’s npr the rest of the week at work!
This is a pity as I always look forward to the show. But no worries, life has a tendency to get in the way sometimes.
Thanks for letting us know. Any plans to put the next show out early ?
Well, that’s just PURPLE !
is it possible for future shows to essentially post a show with no audio so we can be notified in our podcast feeds that there is no show?
i spent all week refreshing my feed in disgust before i made the effort to come here…
hrm. Honestly, I’m not sure; there are some things which trigger off new releases and may blow up if a show post isn’t a “real” release. But maybe it’s OK. If we have to skip a show again, I’ll try to do this and see if it’s OK!
Could you do just a standard “no show this week, apologies!” audio file with a different episode marking?
That’s one’s definitely a big negatory; quite a bit of the underlying magic will get confused about an actual show audio without a show number, and I don’t want a show number on ten seconds of me saying there’s no show. A blog post on the RSS feed without a show in it will work, but I don’t think podcatchers will display it!
Email via the mailing list would work well enough for me
The forum is our mailing list In your forum preferences, you can set digests to arrive every 30 minutes, which is pretty much the same as a mailing list…!
Hmm you do have a point there, I appear to have been schooled. Cheers anyway!
