Hi, Viking! How’s it going with you and Mrs. Viking?
Just got home. Had a very long day...
We’re leaving in the morning for vacation. Won’t have internet access...
Returning on the 13th...
My Kindle is loaded up with great books!! Can’t wait to read them!
Headed to bed...
Good night everyone...
Hi, Doc! I hope your Kindle books are a delight!
I have been capturing the stream from WAMU for years. Last night, instead of the usual one-hour mp3 files, I got dozens and dozens of files, each lasting exactly 32 seconds. Did anyone else encounter any problem with the stream from WAMU?
Hey, what’s going on with you?
