In an effort to make things easier for people to find us, especially in this age of mobile webbing (Sheesh, that’s SO Spider-man of us), we’ve added a mobile version of the site. Now you can find an easier to read version on your mobile devices. We hope. Let us know if this actually works for you.
We here at Touching the Monolith want to apologize for the drought in podcasts of late. It’s probably someone’s fault, but we’re not pointing blame, because that would 1) be admitting there’s a problem and 2) admitting that someone caused it. Since 1) there obviously is an issue or some such and 2) it’s no one’s fault really, we’re just going to post this with a sort of Monolith Style cute puppy picture, and hope that no one gets too upset that we lost a couple episodes and haven’t posted a new one in a bit. We will post another soon-ish. I mean, it’s going to be ep 100, so it’ll probably be special or about Doctor Who, right? You all love Doctor Who. Maybe we should come up with a parody and call it Decor Who. How would that sound?
We have a bit of bad news. Our main recording platform, an old HP Pavilion laptop, has given up its hard drive to the great spirit in a grand self-sacrifice to save me table space. Or, in other words, “it’s dead, Bob.”
In the process of the hard drive failure, we seem to have lost two unfed episodes. We will attempt, probably quite boldly, to recover the data, but the “click, click, click, SCRAAATCH” sound coming from the drive sort of leaves a bleak impression of what we might be able to pull from the drive. We do plan on taking this up to a professional who has better tools than we do (which is saying quite a bit, really.)
Please stay tuned to the website, and to Facebook for more news. There will be more.
