Well, it’s only happened to me once before in my podcasting career.
I came to start editing the next podcast (we recorded the show last week) only to discover that the file did not exist.
My recording software claims it exists…
…however, when I try to access it, nothing.
It looks as if it attempted to save a file with a ‘:’ in the name, which is, of course, invalid. As a result, it looks like the save didn’t work – it just didn’t bother telling me about it at the time.
…which is a shame, because, though I say it myself, it was a really good show. Mark was a great guest, and we had my regular gaming opponent; Dave Luff, back on the show for the first time in about 4 years – we had a round table discussion which was interesting and insightful (well, I enjoyed it)
To say that I’m gutted is a bit on an understatement.
So, what now?
Well, we’ll obviously have to find another date to record with Mark. In the mean time, I’ll look at putting out some alternative material in the next few days
