TKC 53 The One-Year Un-Anniversary

An amazing sequence of technical problems has resulted in my not having a podcast to upload today, which was going to be a celebration of the one-year anniversary of the show.  The MacBook Pro that I usually use in Cambridge to prepare the podcast died yesterday.  Tonight the MacBook Air was running slowly, so I called Apple Support, where a confident young man led me through a series of steps to speed it up.  At the end of an hour the Air was inoperable, and there’s a good chance I will lose everything on the hard drive when I take it to the Apple store tomorrow.

I had a terrific interview on the hard drive with tech blogger and columnist Mike Elgan, along with some fine anniversary audio comments from listeners.

I wanted to put something on the feed to let you know what’s up, and my wife’s Mac Mini was available to do the job.  So that’s the story of the one-year un-anniversary of the Kindle Chronicles.  Thank you all for listening and supporting the show for the past year.  There’s nothing left to do tonight except to curl up in my leather chair with my Kindle and read today’s edition of The Economist.

    Thank you for letting us know what happened. I really hope they can safe/backup the data on your drive. And it is really quite fashionable to celebrate an anniversary a bit late.

    I’m sorry you had this problem, as I may be one of your voicemail messages of congrats. BTW, your present mini-episode will not download either.
    Anyway, best wishes for your second year!!

    No problems Len. Although I was looking forward to the interview with Mike Elgan as I thoroughly enjoyed the last interview you did with him. Hopefully the data will be rescued from your macbook and we will get to hear the interview in the near future.

    Great show and I have been a listener of the “The Kindle Chronicles” podcast since the beginning.
