Slight delays and gnashing of teeth

Tuesday, July 1st, 2008

Gah. It’s been a bad stretch, and I don’t like to record when I’m this tired and grumpy. It’s very plain in my voice, and I wouldn’t want to listen to it, so I don’t post it.
I have 2 theories on why my neighbors-beneath have resumed their thumpy bass every night at 11:30 [...]

Woo Hoo! and other stuff.

Friday, June 20th, 2008

First, thanks to all for info and offers of support. I’m driving down to LA to a specialty clinic next month. (the local place was a forwarded phone number… coming to my area this fall)
Second, the next interview is edited. It will air in 2 halves, the first next week, then (gasp!) [...]

TASCF Ep057: Childfree Step-parents

Tuesday, June 3rd, 2008

Thanks, Happy Things, a Brave Men Run promo, and an interview with Kim, a childfree woman dating a divorced dad. Warning: we swear.
On the mega-plus side, thanks to Nobilis for the lead on a local doc who deals with CFS. Next week, I have an appointment. Now let’s hope [...]

CFS cry for help from the podosphere.

Wednesday, May 21st, 2008

OK, I give. I need help from you guys trying to get treatment. Here’s the file that I would greatly appreciate you hearing and passing along through the podosphere:
I will put it into the other feed this week. Please pass it along and help if you can. Thanks.

Not dead. Just sick.

Saturday, May 3rd, 2008

I’m nicknaming this one “Frogthroat Fever.” Costume Con was awesome. See May 1st at my Live Journal. Yes, I’ve been sucked into that web community thingy, but it’s not as bad as the Twitter crack.
Back soon, I hope. I need to do an upgrade on WordPress, so if this breaks, please [...]

OK, mostly caught up.

Thursday, March 20th, 2008

I’m caught up (mostly) from being out of town, etc. I have recorded the next episode, and just in time! My voice is going. It should be up within the next week.
Talk soon, CF

Local Steamheads, Unite (or at least have lunch!)

Sunday, February 10th, 2008

(Podcast fans, fear not, I expect the next episode will be out this week. My voice is back, now I can record again, edit, etc.)
Please join me and other Bay area steamheads for a costumes-encouraged-but-not-required lunch on Sunday, February 24, 2008 at 12:30. Show off your latest project, find ideas for accomplishing the [...]

Uh-oh! Voiceless Kitty!

Tuesday, February 5th, 2008

I recorded the Contraceptive News Chunk on Friday, but couldn’t finish the whole episode before losing my voice entirely. Hopefully next week I’ll have the next podcast up.
I’m home sick today, after the fever came back briefly at work yesterday. I’m still voiceless but less out-of-it. Henry and I have had tickets [...]

Heeeeerrrre goes!

Saturday, January 19th, 2008

I am about to put up the next and long-overdue podcast after all of Summer’s valiant efforts to undo the tech mess that I managed to create behind the deceptively placid facade of this website. (Thanks, Summer!)
You can hear all about how I’m doing, new NK chapters, Happy Things, and the 2nd part of [...]

No children welcome at a cocktail party… *gasp* or *duhhhh*?

Saturday, December 29th, 2007

check this advice column out.
This goes right up there with late-night Dragon*con, bachelorette parties, and IRS audits as expected Adult Spaces. Worth a read.

Happy holiday/nearly 2008!

Thursday, December 27th, 2007

I believe I dragged an entire media group into tech hell with me, rather than get pulled out by them. As Murphy’s High Priestess of Podcasting, I shouldn’t be surprised. I’m hoping to be up sometime in the first quarter of the new year, may it be better all around than this one. [...]

Still trying to be patient? Me too!

Friday, December 7th, 2007

There have been a few glitches on the way to my functional adoption into the FarPoint Media family. Basic case of really bad timing, and that’s not so bad, really. I’ll let you know when I’m back up and podcasting.
I’m feeling mostly better from the car accident 2 weeks back, for what that’s [...]

Soon, my patient listeners.

Friday, November 9th, 2007

I’m accumulating so much science/social news for the next shows. As they say in anime, please look forward to it!

Earthquake… whee!

Tuesday, October 30th, 2007

Henry, the 2 fluffballs, and I are fine. No damage. Hope all of you are well,

Moving files, etc.

Wednesday, October 24th, 2007

The move to Farpoint Media and Podango is ongoing. I’m taking the opportunity to update the show art (long overdue, I know).
If anyone has a tip on better stereo-izing with Audacity (settings for Mix and Render, etc), please share!!
More soon, CF
