As you are well aware Late Night Cocoa has gone very quiet for the last couple of months. This has happened for a whole host of reasons but the current one is I am struggling to find guests with time to prepare or record an episode. I am currently talking to about 7 potential people but I guess it shouldn't surprise me that talented people are busy.
So in order to allow guests time to prepare and to find recording time I have decided to put Late Night Cocoa on a summer vacation. During this time I will do my best to produce a show schedule for the rest of the year so that you (and I) can know what's happening and guests can have dates to work to.
If you currently have a paypal subscription with Late Night Cocoa you may wish to cancel it until we start again (or for good). If anyone who has a paypal subscription would like me to return any of the money already donated because you feel the break in the show has been to long please contact me and I will be more than happy to refund you.
Also if you would like to be a guest on the show send me an email at scotty at latenightcocoa dot com.
Thanks everyone for your patience
Late Night Cocoa
I come before you with my tail between my legs in complete humility looking for patience from the Late Night Cocoa audience.
On Monday morning the HD on my MacBook Pro crashed. Here I am now Tuesday evening and the only three things I have not been able to recover are
1. My Photos from my vacation to New York for my wifes 40th birthday last weekend
2. The last 3 months of backups from my accounts package
3. The latest Textmate edition of Late Night Cocoa (You knew it was coming).
This episode seems to have been really destined to be trouble what with all Robs problems with his apartment building catching fire before the recording and now this.
So why weren't these things backed up.
The photos because I had only just downloaded them from the camera (with the delete from camera option checked). The accounts because I had set it up wrong and the LNC episode , well I don't know, every other episode is there I just can find this one anywhere. I guess I need to move to a disk cloning system like superduper to try and avoid this.
I am trying to get another episode recorded but once again feel a bit stupid. The last few months have not gone well with problem after problem delaying things and I have to say I am beginning to loose heart.
So please don't shout at me I am trying my best and realize that I have become very unreliable. I will look to put procedures in place to try and avoid some of these problems in the future.
P.S If you have the slightest interest in following my restore wows then I will be posting that story on my personal blog at www.wafflewithmeaning.com
