Episode 44 - The LOTROCast Reborn

Hi all-

Well after some very irritating days the podcast is up and running.  Since taking over the podcast in January 2010 I have had to:
  • Create a new website
  • Create a new Cyberears account
  • Create a new eMail account
  • Create a new podcast feed
  • Create a new iTunes account
Luckily I think that is it.  Special thanks to Cyberears for all their help during this transition!

In this episode we will cover

Public Service Announcement: LOTROCast feed is going to change

Hi all-

Bad news.  The Feedburner account that redistributed the LOTROCast episodes has become corrupted, disconnected or what ever.  As this account was originally setup by Moormur, I don't have anyway of resetting the account or fixing the problem. 

What does this mean?  It means that you can still download episodes directly from the LOTROCast website or from our podcast hosting site, but that feeds to iTunes are permanently interrupted.

As most of my listeners are on iTunes I have no choice but to create a new LOTROCast podcast feed and to get a new account on iTunes.

As soon as I know what the new feed is I will let you all know.

Sorry for the disruption.
