The Stream is Down

 One thing about computers: their complexity makes it unlikely they'll totally screw up your work by having everything go wrong at once.  That said, they are also good at fouling up what you do with unexpected failures at critical points.

 The stream is down.  I shut it off to add new stuff, and it wouldn't come back.  Technical issue.  It's raised questions about having a stream in the first place.  Maybe going back to through-the-air radio is better.  Nockley thinks so.  

Update, Aug 26: Yes; yes, I do.  I don't know if you 21st Century-types recall it, but there used to be an expression, "Don't put all your eggs in one basket."  Word to the wise.

Regarding the stream: there's a lot of moving parts in that contraption, and neither of us are techs.  (I'm actually "pre-computer"-- oh, how charming, it's being spell-checked.  The computer doesn't recognize it.)  You get a lot more bang for your buck with a podcast, at this stage of affairs.

So, here's the deal.  The stream is paid up for the next month.  If we drop anything into it, you'll be the first to know.  But watch this space for a weekly podcast starting on Friday.
