Not a promotional gimmick here. The future of "Guilty Pleasures" is on hold for now.
On Tuesday evening my internet was down. Woke up Wednseday and it was still down so I called Verizon to find out what was wrong. Three hours and higher blood pressure gauging later it turns out someone at verizon 'accidently' cancelled my DSL. Admittedly their mistake. Two more hours of fussin' 'n cussin' and the end result is that DSL has to be re-ordered for me and the time frame looks to be around October 1, 2003. Dial-up hell for now for the 'ol Grunster. Now, in my area, I am the first person who was able to get DSL. Ordered it one day and 3 months later it started. This was after six updates of "You DSL service should be operational by [insert date here]". So October 1 is still questionable.
I could do a show and upload it to the server and have it play. I could play re-runs of past moments. After all, we are talking about maybe 3-4 shows only. I still don't know what I am gonna do. I will keep this message board and email list up to date with what is happening.
When I do return, I will have some interesting items for musical listening consumption. For now, my time in the chat will also be limited as I need to devote the dial-up time to other tasks and can't have the chat program clogging the system.
Thanks for all who have taken the plunge and listened to the show. Some hate it and some love it. It is fun to broadcast and I look forward to more shows.
