See You on the Other Side

I have been putting this off for quite some time. My humble PC is in dire need of a rebuild. I have put it off and put it off until I can no longer ignore it. The frequent error messages and faults and bugs have risen to the point where I can no longer truly trust it.

The latest and greatest problem is that the damn thing will not shut down on the first request. All it does is shut down the running applications but it remains on at the desktop. Other than that I am getting exception errors and program faults, especially when they are shut down. Not sure why that is but then it is Windows and I don’t think that we are supposed to understand it.

This week is the perfect opportunity due tot he fact that we have not got a show this week. We also thought that with Easter, we deserved a week off and time to catch up with our families and friends… me, I’ll be working! But once the show returns the week after this one, we have a couple of exciting developments to tell everyone about as 2007 rolls on by.

Tonight I am on the prowl for those elusive files that you seem to always miss or forget that you needed and loose in the format… I hate that. But I have had some great tips and applications that are going to help me out. Such as MozBackup. This little utility will back up your profile in both Firefox and Thunderbird (plus the many other suites that are available). Plus everything with it including bookmarks, mail, contacts, history, extensions, cache and so on.

To tell the truth I am dreading it. Wish me luck and I will see you on the other side!

Oh… and if I am “missing” you will know why!


Global Geek Podcast Delayed This Week

For those of you that are expecting a podcast this week, yes it has been delayed. But don't worry it is coming!

This week there has been a number of factors that have played havok with our recording schedule. Seb has been flat out completing his final assignments for college. My shifts have not been the best for recording time. I worked this last week end, a late early. In addition to that this week end Seb is going away for the week end so we won't be able to record. So we decided to delay this weeks so it would carry us through without there being too much of a break in-between.

So I hope that clears that up. But what I figure is that this is one of the great things about podcasting, no-one is on a schedule other than the ones that we create ourselves. So for the purpose of sanity that's what's going on this week. Stay tuned guys should be something worth listening to soon.

Something else worth mentioning is that the Global Geek Podcast homepage is currently undergoing a rebuild and we are working on that as well. It will not be released until it is ready and polished up. The restrictions that LibSyn place on the format have been challenging to say the least but we will get there in the end. Mainly because we have the "The Codeman" Adam on the case.
