I was looking through the archives of last years Yuri's Night Global Celebrations & found an entry about the event that Jon Witts & I attended. If you look at the centre photo, you will see that I have added arrows to mark where we were sat. I'm on the right & Jon is on the left. Extracts from the event were the prominent feature of Garbage POD Episode 7.
First of all I would like to thank James Hart for alerting me to the fact, that people with non Flash enabled devices, could not access the audio players on either The Garbage POD, dedicated main show page or The TGP Xtra page.
On hearing this, I promptly emailed Weebly & asked them what could be done to rectify this & they came back to me (pretty rapidly) with a solution using the tools provided on the online editor, to enable visitors to the site, to download episodes directly to their device.
I must add that Weebly's customer service is second to none.
Along with doing the weekly shop, I spent the rest of the day changing the show pages so that now, all Garbage POD & TGP Xtra episodes are downloadable.
Tomorrow is Yuri's Night & Terry Ransome is going to put a link to The Garbage POD Episode 7, on his own Facebook Page as well as The British Schools Museum Facebook page also. It's all good publicity for the show & another reason why I wanted to sort out the download situation.
Last night a friend of mine from Romania (who I haven't spoken to in a little while), contacted me via Skype & told me that they had visited The Garbage POD website. I was pleasantly shocked because, the last time I had spoken to them, it was before the Podcast was up & running.
I asked them how they found out about the show, & they told me they had scanned the QR code that I use as my profile picture on Skype.
Well it goes to show that my QR code idea works!
I have just just received a lovely email from Terry Ransome from The British Schools Museum, thanking me for including his Yuri's Night lecture in Garbage POD Episode 7 & mentioning the Museum also.
I forgot to mention on the Podcast, that you can follow The British Schools Museum on Facebook
Sorry for the lack of posts lately, but I have not had a great deal to say.
In a local retail park there is a huge discount store that used to be a JJB Sports (to give you some idea on the size).
The Store is called Family Bargains & most of the stuff they sell, are brand name goods.
Whilst looking on the bookshelves in the store I came across the book that accompanied the TV series "Oz & James Drink To Britain". When the series originally aired I wanted to buy the book, but didn't want to pay nearly £20 for it, so I left it.
On seeing it in Family Bargains, I thought to myself "it's bound to be around £5-£6" but was pleasantly shocked to find that the price was 99p. that's two big hardback books purchased in a fortnight, & less than £4 paid for them both.
I aim to put up a new episode of The Garbage POD, tomorrow, Kind of, an Easter Special.
I won't tell you much about it now, but what I will tell you is that it will be a Garbage POD Exclusive.
I am contemplating creating a website dedicated to informing people about the facilities at U.K. Coach Stations.
As a pedestrian, I rely on the public transport system & when you have to wait for a connecting service to complete your journey, It is sometimes difficult to find out what facilities are located in the place that you might have to wait for a long space of time, so Collating information & also photographs, reviews of coach stations, hopefully might put fellow travelers minds at ease.
Fellow travelers would be free to contribute entries to the site if they wish also.
Let me know what you think?
