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!
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?
Which side are you on over the New Yorker cartoon cover satirizing the misinformation about the Obamas? White media’s hyped outrage or with the eye-rolling cool people? Or, maybe you belong to a group often misunderstood and reduced to cheap jokes derived from stereotypes and minimal understanding? Is your view of satire clearer than other people’s view of satire?
I made this brief flash video today to test embedding flash videos. Your feedback would be most helpful to me as I continue to explore options for efficiency. In other words, I want to submit writing/video/audio with as little hassle as possible to both you and me. So, instead of choosing between PC friendly wmv files and Mac friendly mov files, I’m trying flv (flash) embedded. Does it work for you?
