Technical Delays, Not the End of the World (or the Podcast)

Duck Sauce: "FYI.  Not sure the problem yet, won't be able to work on it until tomorrow night."

A little later.

Duck Sauce: "FWIW, it doesn't look terminal.  The drive enclosure went down, so I will have to buy a new one.  It will take a few days to get back up."

Even later.

Duck Sauce: "Yeah the podcast feed is gone until the server is back up.  I had just put together the next episode and was uploading it when I realized the server had crashed."


Duck Sauce: "You may want to post on minions site."

So what can we take away from this?  Well, it looks like we were AWOL for the summer. Now with the feed gone it looks likes we're gone from the Earth.  These are just LOOKS people!  As you can see from our closet of wires, this is a sensitive tech operation, the slightest out-of-phase variance and the whole enchilada shuts down.


No, we're not AWOL, on the contrary we've been recording more than ever.

No, the podcast isn't gone, it's just having server problems now.  The upside is when it gets back up it will be faster and better than ever.  And start cranking out a whole catalog of back issues.

The takeaway:

We're here, but having a little trouble.  Spread the word, tell your friends, post on your blogs, talk about it on your own podcasts...the Minions are forever.  Seriously, spread the word.

We'll see you soon.


  1. Dear Minions, podcast starvation has had a dramatic impact on my painting output. It has dropped to zero! While joking around with Gyro and Ducksauce on instagram is fun, it's just not the same. And with the zero painting, my feed has devolved into video games, food and even a selfie.
    Great to hear you're on the road to technical recovery, I want my vicarious group back!
    Your best friend, Spacejacker.

    1. It's all fun and games until we realize that our failings impact others.
