In Memory of Uncle Dick

2005-07-17 :: itunes@ratula.net (Oblivion Ratula)

Today's post is personal. It's about a recent death and funeral in the family. It's not for everyone, I understand. I don't expect anyone to 'enjoy,' but maybe the random listener will find something interesting. I'm not pimping my blog/podcast... …

2005-06-28 :: itunes@ratula.net (Oblivion Ratula)

This is my second 'cast'. I doubt it is going to have any universal appeal. The main audio is from 6/25/05. On the drive to an R/C airplane show, I chat up the iriver iFP-899 some more, including a near-meltdown... …
