AmeriNZ 269 – A fighting chance

I was determined to post a second episode last week, but the fates did not allow. This episode was recorded on Thursday, November 10, 2011. I mostly mention a bit more about the upcoming NZ election, and also go over some feedback, which lets me talk about other topics. I borrowed a podcaster’s bumper music for this episode—and yet, it hasn’t been played on a single podcast. Ah, a cryptic riddle! While I won’t use the bumper again, I will explain the riddle next episode.

I recorded this last Thursday afternoon, then attempted to post it later that evening. However, FileZilla, my FTP software, suddenly couldn’t connect to this site (I have no idea why), so I tried to upload manually through the web, which I finally figured out how to do Friday morning (it’s been years since I’ve done that…). That also didn’t work. After some unhelpful customer non-service from my host, Nigel suggested different FTP software, Cybeduck, and that, finally worked. I still have no idea why FileZilla suddenly stopped working, or why I couldn’t upload through the webhost’s own website.

All of which just goes to show that I’m probably the single most dedicated podcaster who doesn’t podcast very regularly.

  1. Halloween in Albany this year was actually quite active. A lot of high school and maybe even college students came to our door.

    The pace of netball reminds me of girls’ basketball when I was growing up. Girls could only dribble twice then had to pass the ball. The game now is more like the boys’ game.
