    The main feed; in a news aggrigator, it's the news items, in a podcast client, it's the media files.

    This is the feed for iTunes to load the podcast. Why so difficult and non-standard? Beats's why I use Juice and not iTunes.

“D*mn…no power.”

Filed under: General — Charlie Summers @ 8:26 pm

The subject of this post is a quote from 24: The Game, in Mission 49 - Searching Radford’s Office. When Tony Almeida (Carlos Bernard) approaches the elevator wherein one of the civilians that needs to be rescued is trapped (or the door where he needs to break in to continue traversing the building), he delivers the line.

But in my case, it’s literally true. Since early this morning, there’s been no power to a large section of my area, including the neighborhood where I live. To say it’s a little cold in my house is an understatement, and with the winds kicking up I don’t expect to have power before tomorrow at the earliest, and it could be even later.

So even though the holidays are coming, all of the material I planed on posting is trapped on computers that have no electricity (including an excellent copy of The Campbell Theater’s A Christmas Carol with our friend Arthur Anderson in a featured role, provided by another friend, Jerry Haendiges). I’ll try to get everything out once power is restored, but for now, please understand I’m doing the best I can, keeping pipes from freezing and running to a local cafe to occasionally connect to the Net and get some work done. (In a future post, I’ll tell you how I’m using PortableApps, an open-source, freeware, and completely safe version of the dangerous U3 flash drive software, to manage this crisis and maintain some bit of sanity no matter what computer I’m using where.)
