He could have inform this somehow... This really sucks..
I was thinking that he was dead or something..
Hope not... But it is strange... Earl should make atleast once a week "updates" and tell us why the next episode is so late. It would be fun to know that he has gone "fishing" or "bowling" or even making a new roof to his house
If you have ever done a podcast you will know its not a simple quick and easy thing. Producing one episode can take a lot of time, which many people do not have. I have done a few and there are many reasons why people dont do them! Finding new interesting topics to talk about gets harder the more you do also. I dont think anyone would be interested in what Earl is doing every week! Follow him on Twitter.
Earl doesn't have to tell anyone why an episode is late or never going to happen. 99% of the time, it is simply a lack of time. Enjoy the fact he is on the Retro Computing Roundtable!
It doesnt take lot say something when you are going to quit.. Not just left all people wonder what happened and wait.. Retrobits was good show.. I did listen it many years.. This just makes me feel that he didnt care people who did listen at all.
Happens every day with Podcasts They run for a while and then just stop or the Host(s) find someway to make money either ads or solicit for donations look at TWiT was just a podcast form former TechTV personalities mainly Leo Laporte he still even after being succeful and making bigger bucks still solicits the lemmings I mean Listeners for money.
And Earl does care as far as I am concerned but real life and family come first and if he is on anothe rpodcast where he doesnt have to do the editing and all that work then great. This forum was his main place for the Retrobits podcast but over time the forum is well DEAD
Qlink reloaded is run by Shadow (at least the only one I know of running live now) the other projects I read about on here I guess are dead.
Even Jeff Ledger the forum Admin who started this forum and Petscii.com hasnt signed in for 2 years and petscii.com is just a parked domain so unless all the activities have moved somewhere else on the web I'd say the Pescii forums and retrobits podcast are done
I just check in once in a while to see if anything new but no not really
Take care all Sorry for the rant not like many will see anyway
