i was all set to upload episode 1 a week and a half ago, and then the motherboard got fried. a week and a half later, relieved that we didn’t lose data (oh, did i mention we hadn’t had a back-up plan? we didn’t know if the first 4 podcasts were gone for good, but luckily the whole hard drive was safe) so, within 3 hours of getting the computer back from the apple folks (it was under warranty, so whew!) a doggie paw smashes into the screen and the computer lands face down on the carpet. (screens, unfortunately are not covered under warranty. oops!) luckily mr. carrot is a computer nerd and enjoys a new challenge/experience. a $100 part is better than sending it away. again. and being charged $700.
i’ll do my best to get episode 1 uploaded tonight, however, something tells me the universe doesn’t want that to happen.
ETA: ok, it’ll take a little while longer. the motherboard freak-out appears to have affected the sound of one of the tracks. luckily i have the raw data saved as a different file. gah! we’re looking at monday for the upload now. (have to make lots of food for grandpa’s [and my] birthday party on sunday. including the cake. podcast takes a back seat to cake.)
