My iRiver is dead. All hail the iRiver.

The warning signs didn’t lie. Poor ol’ thing’s HD doesn’t even hum a bit when trying to power up. *sniff* It was a lovely lil box while it lasted. I had just recorded 2 things for other folks and transferred them to my PC, so you may hear my voice elsewhere very soon; I’ll post links when that happens.

Also, the short TASCF silence into January won’t last long. I owe a great deal of thanks to a fellow podcaster who sold me her used Verra Niiice recording equipment “for whatever [I] could afford”. Thank you, and thank you to all relatives who gave me money for Xmas. My car battery and my podcast thank you. I also owe thanks to my crafting buddy, who gave me her “it came free with the headphones” mp3 player that she doesn’t use. So I remain a podcaster and a listener! :)

The circle of charity is a strange one, because this weekend we’re feeding and sheltering someone who has to drive crosscountry back home because months of jobhunting where he had been laid off weren’t fruitful. I firmly believe what I told him: Don’t worry about it. We all get through the rough times together. We do the best we can. Sometimes we’re paying forward into the Help Pot, and sometimes we’re paying back, but we are all in this together.

Best of luck to all in 2009, and may all your efforts pay off. Talk to you soon, CF
