Finally…an answer

Podcast August 9th, 2011

Hopefully there are a few of you that still check the site or feed and will see this.

If you are reading this, then you have been wondering where the show has gone and if it will return.  Our hiatus was fueled by many distractions, but it has led me to the point I had hoped to avoid; the show is done.  I finally had the chance to speak with Steve and let him know that I am bowing out of the show altogether.  Steve is battling his own constraints, but may decide to do something with the show.  Keep an eye out for a post from him letting you know if there are any plans.

We truly apologize for disappearing (again) without an explanation.  Between our jobs and families, we can’t seem to find a way to schedule a regular recording time.  I couldn’t find the time to put together content for the show; which led to aggravation for me as I wanted to bring something of substance to the show. The reason I/we didn’t post anything was that we kept hoping to delay the inevitable and find a way to get past this.  We’ve delayed long enough and it’s time to call it done.

I am hoping to schedule a “Final Episode” with Steve and Rich and will post a recording time should anyone want to join us.

Lastly, I want to thank all of the listeners we’ve had over the years.  You have all been very supportive and encouraging.  Knowing that someone was listening and enjoyed the show makes it all worth the effort.  I will truly miss the interaction and fun we’ve had along the way together.

Thank you again.

    I understand not having the time to do a show regularly. I once did a guest appearance on Podnutz Daily and found it incredibly difficult just to find the time to do that. Best of luck to all of you and thanks for all that you have done.

    Thats sad. All good things…
    Its better to announce an end than to drift away leaving people wondering.
    Dont rule out appearing on other podcasts as guests.

    Sad to hear the podcast is gone but busy is good and hope it stays that way.

    Thanks for the many great podcasts. I may not be doing IT for a living but have been around the field for a good number of years. I always enjoyed Mind of Root and hearing stories from the trenches.

    Thanks and best wishes!
