Old vs New

Do you ever get people commenting about you 'still using an old Filofax' ??

I am sure we have all had some form of similar comment, and we all have our own replies!

Well today instead of using my all singing all dancing super powerful, mega expensive Apple iMac computer to create this post, I'm using my oldest internet connected machine in the house.... at just over 20 years old, a lot has changed in the world of computing, yet in the Apple world it is also familiar, much like your Filofax of say 100 years old!

The machine is an Apple PowerMac G4 with a 350 MHz (not GHz) processor and just 896 Mb of RAM memory!! Yes it's quite slow compared to modern standards, but it works quite nicely. But I got the question from Alison 'Why are you using that old machine!'

Unlike my Filofax though I had to refer to a book to discover how to do a few things! But it's quite a special book, in the acknowledgements there is thanks to our own Nan Barber!

Free For All Friday - No 584 by Steve

Our first daffodil came in to flower this week... Daffodils in January always seems a little mad to me. But that is one of the side effects of living a bit further south than we used to I guess.

Do you record the weather and other events that happened in your garden so you can compare one year to the next?

Of course it is Friday so feel free to discuss anything organiser related.

The Podcast

Today you should have been able to listen to the next episode of the podcast, but when I was doing the final edit of the audio files yesterday I noticed a problem with my side of the audio, which I have not been able to correct. So we will have to re-record that episode. Sadly this happens from time to time.

Instead I thought I would give you a bit of an update on where we are with the podcast.

What am I talking about? "The Hitchhikers Guide to the Plannerverse" podcast, yes it's a bit of a take on 'The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy' by the late great Douglas Adams.

I mentioned the idea of the name to Karine one day and it has stuck because we haven't thought of anything better!

We have been 'broadcasting' since February 2016, with 96 episodes published already and a few more in the pipeline to be recorded in the coming weeks as time allows.

If you haven't discovered the Podcast yet, you can listen on line to each one using a variety of methods, each one holds all of the previous episodes:
You don't have to go back to the first one, we have tried to make each one a complete episode and we attempt to avoid mentioning when it was recorded, so you can dip in to and listen to them in any order and listen to just the episodes that interest you. 

We have a Patreon page for people to be able to donate a small amount of money or more if they wish. The money helps to support the podcast team (Karine and Steve) and the money is used to pay for services we use to publish the podcast episodes as well as equipment and service updates to keep the quality of the podcast as high as possible.

We are giving Patrons some exclusive content and the ability to listen to new episodes a few days earlier than others. We will always keep them free to listen to generally. But the subscription income helps us to keep the podcast 'advert free' without advert breaks and annoying 'plugs' for non-relevant companies.

If you have any ideas for future episodes even if it is a topic we might have previously discussed please email podcast at philofaxy dot com  and the email will find its way to Karine and Steve.

Thank you everyone for your continued support.
