I’m letting people know the next FM episode is going to be a little delayed. I’ve had sort of a perfect storm of things go wrong. First, Otto, the audio editor that assists me, had his hard drive completely fail on him, so he was unable to help on this episode, which adds to the time for me to do it myself.

Second, my system got hit by some sort of virus that hosed my whole OS. I spent most of this weekend just trying to fix it. I didn’t lose any important files, but I still have a ton of software I need to reinstall, so I’m trying to catch up. For those that are interested, I’ve had this sort of thing happen before using AVG as a virus scanner, this time I was using Avast. Since it failed me, I’m going to try out Antivir this time, which is supposedly one of the better antivirus programs out there. This is actually an extremely rare occurrence for me, I can count on one hand the number of times a virus has taken down my OS before.

Anyway, I’ll get the next FM episode done as soon as I can, then I hope to catch up on some of the subtitles after that.

Just a quick note to let users of the “Google Reader” know that I have added an “Autodiscovery” link in an attempt to satisfy this application. There were reports that this particular reader was not working with the feed, and anonymous users suggested that this addition would solve the problem. If you have “Google Reader” please test the feed and provide any feedback as comments to this post. As I don’t have this reader, please be as descriptive as possible, not just ‘It don’t work’.

Also, any users that wish to be credited for providing useful suggestions to the site should take the time to register, at which point you will be mentioned by login name. Curently the suggestion for the “Autodiscovery” addition is credited to “Anonymous” - I guess you know who you are.

Well here’s the latest episode, this is a longer one, I can almost guarantee the next one will be shorter though.

To everyone who’s sent me subtitles, I’m outrageously behind on that (in some cases weeks), but I haven’t forgotten about any of them. I constantly end up in a situation where I feel like by working on one thing I’m neglecting something else. Lately I’ve mainly been concentrating on making more videos than email. Hopefully some day I’ll catch up to everything.

I have activated an RSS 2.0 Feed for the site today. It’s basically tracking the news posts, sending the full news text and links to the posts. I don’t know anything about what the previous ‘Blogspot’ page was doing, so feel free to give an opinion on whether the feed should give an abbreviated description, or any other comment concerning reading content with whatever news readers you have. If you have an opinion concerning RSS 2.0 vs 1.0 or Atom, we can entertain those as well.

I tested the feed with Firefox ‘Live Bookmarks’ and IE 8’s news feed reader, and it seems to work well.
