Apparently AudioAttitude / Procrasticast.com was under suspicion of having bad scripts or something. Maybe some delinquent scripting coding thingy found a hold and startled Google, because Google freaked out and posted warning signs when I decided over the weekend to check in. By the way, does Hollywood get banned from Google when it delivers bad scripts?
In all seriousness, I have been working with my webhost (Doteasy) to resolve the problem. The Doteasy team has informed me that it has now cleaned procrasticast.com of its ills (or at least the misbehaving code). I also replaced the WordPress theme with a default theme, just in case the theme presented some problems. As of this writing this site is under review by Google, and I hope things will return to normal soon because I am ready to ponder our 6th anniversary of this blog.
Yes, six years ago this month we began this fun adventure, and then life did its thing with my attention and I wandered off. Sorry if you were left wondering what happened. I’m here. Just not entirely. Please excuse me while I get back to watching the U.S. GOP primary returns. Today is Super Tuesday. Now there is a bad script!
Hey look! Some people moving onward in the realm of great audio attitude. Seems some people still exist who appreciate the concept of audio content easily consumed via the web. This is not meant to be compelling. I’m just perusing stuff and came across this post about work being done to improve HTML5 audio. Not that I know anything about the technology. Because, I do not.
If HTML5 can deliver sound without spinning the fans on my laptop enough for it to consider levitation, then I am a supporter! I appreciate people like Dominic Szablewski whose time and brainpower improves the way we play on the web. It might even bring my relic of this website back to life.
Okay, probably not. But, I do miss creating podcasts and making a podcast today is almost as easy as thinking about it. If, that is, you don’t count all the hours of producing something worth a listener’s attention.
Four years ago today I published Procrasticast #1. It was a quiet, almost private, podcast attempt that grew quickly into a show people liked but could not pronounce. So, the name changed to “Audio Attitude.” The podcast barely made it to 2007 before succumbing to podfading – the phenomenon that happens when creative energy is needed someplace else in life.
I’m still here and I miss producing a podcast. But, I’m so very busy every waking moment that I know I do not have the requisite time to do justice. I hope one day, perhaps soon, I can get back to audio creating because I enjoy it so much.
Meanwhile, here’s a look at the logo I designed back in the day but never launched. I just ordered some gear with the logo and it all arrived today, on the 4th anniversary of this little media adventure. What do you think?
