the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitch hiker can have

Today is Towel Day, a day when all geeks can carry their towels with them in tribute to the hoopiest frood of them all, Douglas Adams.

I absolutely love that I’m recording an all-geek podcast on this most sacred of days.

Updated: Oh! You know what I love even more? Spending 2.5 hours working on the podcast, then losing the entire thing to some weird confluence of system lockups and crashes.

I’m taking a long, long, long don’t-break-anything walk, and I’ll try again in the morning. Sigh.

  1. Yeah thats as bad as adding the earlier casts to a torrent client, waiting for them to complete and then accidentally clicking on “remove tasks and files”
    it has been done.

  2. Behold the awesome might of the spinning rainbow beach ball!
    Lookin’ forward to the show though, it’s been awhile. :) Best of luck.

  3. Oh no! That’s really crappy. Walk far, Wil. But, I’m sure when it eventually decides to behave itself, it’ll be worth it.

  4. Where there’s a Wil there’s a way.. or something corny like that. Long walk. Deep breath. Throw dirt clods against a fence. :)

  5. *sniff sniff* Do I smell sarcasm?
    It sucks to lose work to gremlins… I think we’ll understand if you’re late. Don’t stress yourself out about it too much.

  6. I’m perhaps the world’s only Adams unfan, but I’ll defend to the… hmm, not death, nor pain, nor inconvenience your right to praise him.
    But the world is usually a better place when people do things they’re passionate about, so Go You.
    I’ll content myself with running another session of Wilusa.

  7. Wait a minute. I thought he used a Mac, and Macs don’t crash. I saw it on that commercial. Oh, I know. He’s got one of them new Macs with the PCs innerds. Curse you Intel.

  8. in addition to being towel day, may 25th is aslo a standout day in the Terry Pratchett Fandom. It involved liliacs and remembering fallen warriors for various couses, both fictional and real.
    because i am a geek, i wore a lilac towel all day and picked lilacs.
    suck about the podcast, but we are patient and can wait. because if a thing is good, it is certainly worth waiting for.
