Everything is cool now, thanks to one Dennis Howlett.
A few things were wrong about this whole thing. First, I left a comment Monday about the podcast being borked; then two other people also commented to the same effect the next two days. No response. This perplexes me, since ZDNet is a media company, you’d think they want conversation.
Second, if oracle.com had anything like this happen, it would be picked by Twitter and certain bloggers (ahem, Dennis).
So, asking Dennis, a ZDNet blogger himself, to do a solid and help me get this sorted, seemed like a logical ask. I asked over Twitter (natch), and he replied in vintage Dennis.
Well, he wasn’t kidding. This morning I woke to a note from Larry Dignan that the podcast was fixed. So, thanks to Dennis for wielding his power for good, and to Larry for his help.
In case you’re wondering, I think Dennis bears a separated at birth resemblance to Zeus. His lightning bolts are verbal though.
Anyway, thanks Dennis. Please don’t fry me.
Update 7/7/08: Another irony: I emailed Larry through the email form ZDN provides for each blogger, and he just replied today saying my mail was trapped in his junk mail folder. Another feedback fail.
