Title: Next podcast?
Post by: GrinWithoutaKat on July 04, 2006, 04:20:31 pm
Is anyone wondering where the next podcast is? I don't see any news about a reason for delay, but nobody seems to be asking for it. We've only had 3 since E3, and I miss them  ???

I think everyone has just held it in and have managed to not ask this question up untill now.  We know Steves a busy guy. But I'm surprised that no one else has given in and asked this question sooner.

it's a good videogame podcast. It's hard to find any good quality video game coverage in TV or podcast. They're major downfall is that most of them try to be funny. If they just stopped being funny most of the other TV shows and podcast would be a whole lot better. Look at the 1up Shows video podcast, it's great and I really enjoy it, but during there summer episodes they started doing these sketches and they're terrible. It drives me crazy because it was such a good show. Steve's show is addicting because it's good serious discusion on gaming that isn't being waterdown by crappy comedy.

/agreed

In my opinion Gaming Steve simply brings the best non-written video game news. And believe me, I tried alot of podcasts, and regularly listen to a quite a few, but in the end there's only one podcast which makes me most excited when I see a new entry on the blog ;) Like someone stated above, I also catch myself checking the site almost daily. And as the OP, I also crave a new episode, but I'm 100% confident Steve is popping them out as fast as his life allows him too. And the day a new one does turn up, I never felt it wasn't worth the wait, on the contrary even. As long as Steve doesnt stop making these wonderful podcasts, you won't hear me complain :) Ok enough ass-kissing for one post (and I even registered to write this :p )

greetz,

Exhale, a loyal belgian listener ;)

I also agree with the above two posts. I bet Steve has some real life things that are in the way. Hopefully everything works out and the podcasts gets abck into motion. And I was thinking, I would pay for this podcast, but what if Steve asked around, Xfire, microsoft, etc, for advertising. In comparing Steve to the PCGamer Podcast, they have ads, but it's tastefully done and once before the show begins and dosen't disturb it.

Hey all. It's coming, I had an unexpected funeral last week which messed up my schedule, and this week I was taking a small vacation with my family.

So I was going to do one last week and tell everyone that this week I wasn't going to do one, but the funeral messed up everything.

Don't worry, it will be back... ;D I'll try to do one ASAP and get it up.

Post by: golden_balls on July 15, 2006, 07:07:14 am
Hi

Im a new member to the gaming steve.com website although have been listneing to the show since before the 360 came out.

Let me first state that i dont have a clue what steve does outside of this podcast * i assume its game related infact im sure of it ahem*
so i could be talking a pile of shi* and this isnt directed at steve its just a general point id like to make.

Does anybody else feel a little let down by people who have podcasts who dont update them on a regular basis i understand family personal and work commitments come first as they do for me , but..........

Ive subscribed to some podcasts and after a few weeks or months the updates tend to be less often the podcasts themselves are small and usually of poorer quality. Again im not saying steves have got less interesting just less frequent
3 podcasts since may 12th thats one every 3 weeks if my math is right lol

one other point and this may be where i get things wrong and flamed . Would steve actually get interviews with major nelson people from the xbox live department add in other people he's interviewed and the invites to microsoft hq etc if he didnt have a podcast ? from memory the other people invited on that day were bloggers only. so while this may be something in addition to his normal 9-5 job does it actually get him to places and interview people he wouldnt otherwise be able to.

You will probably all disagree with me and im kinda being devils advocate but thought id throw this out there and see what response it got

thanks and looking forward to the next podcast whenever it comes  :)

Golden Balls, while what you are talking about what tends to be the norm, Steve's podcast are usually high quality and full of good info. He doesn't usually throw something together because he feels he needs to get something out there.  Summer is usually a slower period for gaming news. Not much coming out, E3 has come and gone, and the holidays are upcoming. The only games I will be buying is EA Sports upcoming releases of NCAA and Madden. These will be the only games I have bought in the past 4 months. This just shows there isn't much out there gaming wise at the moment so there isn't much to make a gaming podcast of.

Not that I'm not looking for a new podcast everyday like everyone else  ;).

Some more Spore info maybe for making us wait so long? I have a long plane ride tomorrow and I was hoping to get to listen to Gaming Steve on there. Maybe on my return flight.
Title: Re: Next podcast?
Post by: LadyM on July 15, 2006, 04:30:20 pm
Steve does have a personal life. He has a family and obligations to them like anyone else. He also works freelancing and has been working several projects. His time has been spread really thin lately. Since he has been in the gaming business for so long, he has a good reputation and he would secure great interviews no matter what he did. There are only so many hours in a day so when he has time, we will get a new podcast. Also, jb7 is correct, summer is a slow time and also vacation time.

Patience.. at least you know you will get a podcast before you get spore.  :D

thanks ladym and others your comments that family commitments come first i think everybody would agree with.
I just think some podcast makers dont commit fully or just let things slide too often. The quality of his podcasts are unquestionable
just the amount has slowed recently as u say summer is here things have slowed down but theres still lots of news.

i still think my point about would he get the interviews invited to microsoft hq etc is valid. does he freelance in journalism or is it in the gaming industry production or marketing ? I dont think that this would necessarly give him personal time with peter moore major nelson and others or not as much as he has recently.

I actually think that steve has one of the better podacasts available right now but reading back the above im not giving that impression lol

I only download a handful of podcasts per week the same ones since learning of this new type of media last september, its like having a favourite tv program and finding it cancelled each week.

anyhoo rant over and i doubt we have long to wait till the next one

I'm not sure exactly what kind of freelancing he does but I think its in the game industry and he is also working on a "secret project" that he can't tell us about which will bring more listeners. He travels alot with his work which would make it hard to record podcasts. He has been in the gaming industry since he was out of high school. He started his own company and made games. I think alot of his contacts go way back. He's been going to E3 and other gaming events for many years so its not like this is something new for him. This has been his life and career so I still think he would get the great interviews. The podcast is what is new and that just started after GDC of last year, same time the forum started.  At least we know when we get one, it will be chock full of qualty stuff.

Hey, I love all of these games as much as you do. In fact, my absolute favorite game of all time is The Sims, and I still play The Sims 2 very often! Setting off fireworks inside and starting fires never gets old with me!

I really should try out Animal Crossing for the DS though. I've been aching to buy that since it came out.

That, and Mario&Luigi 2.

When I started to listen to Steve, I'm sure he was coming out with one, maybe even two podcasts a week. Sadly that is far from the case nowadays. But hey, what can you do? he does it for free, he's under no obligation. 
Mayebe he's just burnt out with podctsing, it happens with highly motivated people, hey give their all and then they lose inteest once they have achieved their goal.

Personally, I think the whole New and Improved downsized E3 cut through, and he needs time to sort it out. But it could also be the heatwave in New York that got several blocks in the dark because of power outages. Hope he posts it soon.

Maybe Steve is currently locked in the bowels of Microsoft Headquarters, undergoing further 'readjustment'.  If this is the case, expect all references to Podcasting to be removed and replaced with 'Zunecasting'.

Instead of complaining, we should send someone to Seattle to rescue him!

All kidding aside, it's coming. I can already feel the energy that was crammed in the upcoming 2 hour podcast of gaming goodness. The wait is nearly over, and our gaming intelligence will be increased once again! All rise and hail your leader, Gaming Steve :D /cheer

i still stand by my comments that while i think the podcast is high quality the website is starting to look stale no updates on a regular basis
even lady m has gone quiet concerning his absence

he likes the freebies that comes with podcasting ie invites to microsoft hq but is he willing to put the effort in
time will tell

i think he's lost quite a few casual listeners due to his long periods between podcasts the question is does he care ?


Title: Re: Next podcast?
Post by: LadyM on August 09, 2006, 03:59:00 pm
I don't know what to tell you about his absense. He is busy, thats all I know. I know the podcast and the forum are important to him but he has had alot of unexpected things that come up and he does have a family. Since the podcasts is a totally volunteered thing to do, I'm sure that gets pushed to the bottom of the list at time. You have to remember that he does this for us. He is not under contract or required to do it. We have all grown accustomed to a weekly podcast is all.
Title: Re: Next podcast?
Post by: Piloteer on August 09, 2006, 04:31:36 pm
We understand that Steve is very busy. I certainly don't mind waiting for his podcast.

But I think that, like golden said, Steve is losing a lot of casual and potential listeners. Just taking a glance at iTunes, you see many gaming podcasts, and Steve's podcast all of the sudden looks much less appealing do to the infrequent updates. I will always enjoy the podcast, no matter how sparse the shows are, but when the average person goes to iTunes looking for a good gaming podcasts, Steve's becomes one of the lesser appealing shows.

Don't forget that Steve is probably also looking through the numeous reveiws and other articles many of us sent him when he asked for potential reviewers, although an ETA on the next podcast would be nice, it's not like without you realise what a sad and lonely existence your life really is, unless it actually is in which case, well..... TOUGH!!  ;D

Us regular listeners are doing fine. It's the casual listeners, and the new listeners, who are being turned off by the infrequent updates.

I know that when I find a new podcast that I'm interested in, I always check when the most recent podcasts have been released. If I see that the podcast releases are regularly 3-4 weeks apart, and the last podcast was 3 weeks ago, it will give me a bad impression of it, and I'll usually find a different one.

You don't have to "switch", you can listen to more then one podcast.  I mean do you only watch one TV network and listen to one radio station?  I listen to Gaming Steve, Gamer Andy, twit, and Major Nelson with the occasional digg.

I've tried other gaming podcasts, and they make me sick.  They all remind me of the ultra nerds who tend to send in audio questions to Steve - they have absolutely no charisma, are dull, lifeless and boring.

I could listen to Steve waffle on about anything.

I've been listening to a bit of Gamespot recently, it's not as good, I enjoy more mature podcasts like Steve (heh, and what else? :D), but other than that, I think the hotspot is a fairly good show. I think it's interesting how they have a female gamer.

I listen and watch too many podcasts and video casts.  Let me look and see.....about 40 of them.  And yes  I listen to my iPod all the time.  Also some of them are only 5 minues long or so and most only come out every week or every 2 weeks but I have some that are daily podcasts also.
Title: Re: Next podcast?
Post by: tadale on August 10, 2006, 10:38:57 am
I've been browsing for other podcasts to listen to, and nothing seems to fit.  I don't mind waiting, but Steve knows how popular his podcast is and he knows that he has people who check this page everyday to see if we've got something.  You think he would be able to through us a bone, maybe a small update that tells us that he's still around and still working on a podcast.  I know he could have something wrong with his recorder, but is it really that hard to type a few sentences in an update and post them on the front page?
Title: Re: Next podcast?
Post by: J-Caizer on August 11, 2006, 01:46:53 pm
I'm all for Steve taking his time and attending to his life.  I appreciate all the shows he has done up to this point and love the quality.

But yeah.. it's not too hard to post on a message board to let us know what's up.

I mean, do we even know if he's okay?  Hope so....  :(

Anyway, while I'm dying for more Gaming Steve as he's my favorite, here's some other good ones that tide me over until the king returns:

www.broadcastgamer.com
http://www.teamfremont.com/teamfremontlive.shtml
www.geekson.com

Hope Steve's alright.  I and I'm sure everyone else miss the guy.   :'(

I have to admit that I am getting a bit impatient too. I doubt the power outages in New York could still be giving Steve trouble in get a cast up.
I hope he's OK and not laying in some hospital bed with only one pinkey still functional with which to monitor the forums.
If you are Steve then know I'm pulling for you!

Post by: J-Caizer on August 13, 2006, 10:45:16 am
The little problem I have is that I'm a webmaster too, but my audience is about 1/100th of what Gaming Steve brings in.  He's a responsiblity to his readers and listerners to tell them what's up and what's going on.  I was gone from my site for about a week, but I let them know that my father had passed away and that I would be gone for that time. 

That being said, Steve's proven himself through and through to be a good and considerate guy, so for him to be gone this long without so much as a word... does raise some concern.

Is there anyway to find out if he's alright?
Title: Re: Next podcast?
Post by: LadyM on August 13, 2006, 03:36:12 pm

Post by: Gaming Steve on August 15, 2006, 07:21:05 pm
Hey all. So a few things on the next podcast:

1) It is coming, I have it ready to go, I just need to do it.

2) I have been crazy busy ... working on a new game actually. And once I get into a project I sort of get sucked into it...

3) When I heard that E3 was "scaled back", and I'll go into this in more detail on the show, I was so damn depressed that I didn't really want to have anything to do with gaming for about 2 weeks afterwards. I didn't play a game, read gaming sites, or do anything gaming related. Even the game I have been working on didn't appeal to me much anymore. But then Dead Rising came out and sucked me back in! That and the fact that it appears that cancelling E3 has done the exact opposite and has caused more gaming conventions to pop-up. Plus ... I found out some very interesting dirt on what happened to E3, and I'll share this with you on the next show.

4) I have to find a new place to record my show. I have been recording my show at a friend's place since my place hasn't been accessable to record a show (my apartment is very large for Manhattan, but all the rooms always seem to be occupied and they're all sort of open and connected to each other) and I need to find a new place to record my show. And that has been the biggest problem of them all. Manhattan is an awesome place, but trying to find a quiet place to record a show is sort of impossible, and has been a major problem. Any Manhattan listeners who have an idea on this one I would be interested to hear...

But, I am working on getting this all straightened out. The show is ready to go, I just need to find a place to record the damn thing.

And those people who submitted articles and such for the site, I haven't written anyone back yet, but will very soon as I have tons and tons of applications to go through. But I'm alive and well, just crazy busy...

Steve, you are a king among men.

We love you and the podcast, but really if something like this goes down and you're outta action for more than a week or so.... could you give us a heads up?  I was thinking everything from some kinda legal trouble to other trouble had struck ya man.  You got a lot of people the count on and look up to ya.  Not gonna even dream to tell you how to run the site, but as a fan... could I ask that we get at least a whisper and an update if you're alright and everything's fine?

Anyway, sorry to hear you were down, man.  But damn glad to hear you're back in action.  Looking forward to your next cast and to hear you once again knock it outta the park, Steve.

Glad you're okay too!   ;D

Thanks for the update!

So was I.  I was the second site on the internet to report it (http://www.unscleric.com/news/category/e3-2006-coverage/) and it made me sick to my stomach.  I'm very interested to hear what information you have on it, but I've felt from the very beginning that Sony & EA were behind it, and then the news came out a couple days later that they actually were, and paid several million each to the ESA to have it done.  Absolutely sickening, and you were one of the first people I thought of when it happened, because I could just feel how much you loved E3.  Hopefully the CEA can help revive a bit of the magic, and have some kind of event in May to replace it.  RIP E3.  I wasn't even at E3 2006, but that entire week was some of the most fun I've ever had.

Hope you check out the e-mail I send you too, thanks.

I am planning on discussing this game on the show ... and even go through the entire process of what it takes to create the game on the show. I think a lot of people will be very interested in hearing the process from the beginning as it's actually happening. Altough I also think a lot of people will be surprised just how much time is spent waiting for things to happen. Making a game isn't always fun and exciting, like most things it's just a ton of hard work and a fair amount of downtime.

I can't go into the game details too much, but it is definitely offbeat!

Great to hear from you Steve, you had many people worried about you.  I can't wait to hear about the development of your game.  I have always wanted to make a casual game type of game but I am woefully under-qualified (last programming I did was in BASIC on the C64).   Hopefully with the release of Mictrosoft's XNA I can dabble a bit in it.

Post by: Fade2gray on September 07, 2006, 06:33:03 pm
Most of his regular listeners probably just use a subscription program. Most probably not going to go through the hassle of oversubscribing and will just let it be until they notice a new episode downloading. He probably isn't going to gain too many new listeners though without regularly releasing new episodes. I don't think he does his show though sheerly for the number of listeners he has, it probably just because he enjoys doing the show in general.

Yes their free, but so is your email if you use hotmail, yahoo, or pretty much anything.  Now if you all of a sudden see that they lost your data and you lose all of your email are you gonna go "well it was free so I can't complain"?

I love Steve's podcasts and I don't blame him for the lack of them recently but the last 2 hes said he would do one biweekly or the next one would be out soon when neither were true.  My point is don't say theres going to be a new one in 1 or 2 weeks if you can't fullfil that.

Are you kidding me? the introduction of a Gold Supermodel gun that creates Golden supermodels at will, would totally depleate the Gold and Supermodel markets. Especially the Golden supermodel markets. It would devalue both and most likely cause a worldwide economic depression. Although supermodels and gold will end up being notoriously cheap.

Anyway
I don't think steve has any need to change the theme music right now.

I'd say the spore demo would be interesting...but I'm not so sure Steve is sitting on the spore demo...

Iíd like to talk about another thing that might have to do with the lack of episodes. It's more of the "human" kind.

Have you ever been sick for a day or 2 and couldn't go to your job, or had an active blog and just couldn't get around to update it for a couple of days/weeks? I think most of us have.

These kind of events always give me the feeling there is somehow a bigger threshold to overcome to get started again. Like having to push a car, the hardest part is the overcome that initial friction to get it going. I know that for me it would be a lot easier to hold a job where Iíd have to work 2 hours a day for 5 days then 8 hours a day for one day (10/week easier then 8/week?), just an hypothetical example offcourse ;) I mean, why do you reckon Monday is the most dreaded day of the week?

Obviously there's more to the puzzle then just this piece, like other commitments, priorities, etc. Just my $0.02 :)

Cheers.

There's something quite fishy about this. This requires further investigation!  ;D

Anyway, an easy or quick solution would be: on the mainpage a post when there's no show, by Steve himself. It is an easy way to let the audience
know you're still there, and haven't given up on podcasting due to personal/job related time constraints, which is perfectly understandable if that would be the case, yet it would be a pity.
Recently some other podcasts called it a day and quit, they too had some good plans right before it happened (like Steve's website content) and were also not pumping the podcasts out on a regular basis anylonger. Anyway, to be clear, i do not say this is the case with Gaming Steve. It is just me expressing my concerns. It would be a considerable loss to gaming podcasting if Steve
were to quit.

Finally found this thread. If he's never gone a month before, then tomorrow is a milestone. I don't like the looks of it. If I had to put out an educated guess, I'd guess either some part of it has lost it's appeal to Steve and it's now a bit of a drag to do, OR, he's gotten so busy he literally doesn't have time to do the show anymore. Either way, a post on the front page stating his intentions would be greatly appreciated.

So is it confirmed that the podcast is gone? In all honesty, I do have to say it's kind of crappy to treat your community this way. They helped build this into what it is now and deserve a small post to let them know if it's gone or not. Shades of Gone Gold...

Okay, the podcast is not gone. It is late, that is all. It has been a month late before, actually the last two have been late. I don't feel like he is treating the community bad at all. If you listened to the last podcast, he said that he has been busy, he is working on a video game, he is trying to find a new place to record the podcast as he can no longer do it from home and has some other real life issues.

One of the reasons he is looking for people to help write articles for the front page is because he is so busy.  He hasn't forgotten.

I'll send him a message that the crowd is getting restless again but a little understanding would be nice. Honestly, I have so much fun here on the forum, I don't miss the podcast that much. It's like a bonus.

I don't mind that there hasn't been a podcast for a while I didn't start listening to the podcast until i had been on the site for a while and even then i only listened to spore talk then i started listening to the rest as time went on. when steve gets some free time again and starts recording again I'll still be here I'm here more for the forums and community than the podcasts anyway. Be nice if he could get people to step in for the time being or something. I have to admit to being tempted to recording my own half arsed parody of steves podcast to fill the time at times. but ti will basically be a few minutes of me saying "With that being said" "It's just awsome." and mispronouncing stuff.

/agree. And it's not like that would ruin his schedule for the day.. It would hardly take 1 minute. On top of that it wouldnt even have to be posted by Steve himself,
someone who is in the know is sufficient, which i guess just happened in this thread by ladym.

Although i do still have this website bookmarked i dont check for updates as often as i used to

I think the excuse that theres no news so why have a podcast is laughable

I can recall last year before and during the 360 launch when people asked would he have the same kind of coverage for the ps3 and wii launches he said he would and we shouldnt worry. hmmm i guess he's not fullfilled that promise.

But his job family and other commitments should come first.

Im sure it wont be too long and im getting used to the monthly podcast.

You wouldn't want Steve end up thinking "Hmf... I want to do this podcast, but I can't do it at home anymore and I'm swamped with work... and all these buggers can do is whinge about there being no podcast, can't they cut me some slack??? arghhh... this isn't fun anymore..." *gaming steve over*

Yes, I am back. For those of you who were wondering ... I had a baby boy recently (well, I didn't have the baby, my wife did). And my already crazy life became even crazier!

But things appear to be settling down and now I will have some more free time every day to devote the site and the show. Look for a new podcast very soon!

They are that desperate that they send all their units to the US, and then they give the finger

If I had to guess, I would guess Steve's interest is waning. I know he's busy and all with the new addition, but that will reset your priorities. I think it's the beginning of the end here.

Given Steve's long history with gaming and the fact that he's currently working on a game, I really doubt that he's lost interest. Podcasting is low on the priority list with all the things he has going on. I wouldn't be worried about him calling it quits until it comes from his mouth.

There's been a sighting!  Epileptic Gaming visited Electronic Arts for their community summit (sometime in the last few days), and mentioned Steve:

[19:54] <T-BirD> wait...did he say gamingsteve was there at the same time as EG?
[19:54] <ONAIR|djWHEAT> yeah actually
[19:54] <ONAIR|djWHEAT> i met him
[19:54] <ONAIR|djWHEAT> and we talked about each others shows :)

Guess that confirms that he's pretty busy...and maybe generating new content for the show!

He's always planning on making a new one. He could probably give us a deadline like next weekend, say, but he didn't keep to it last time so I dont think it would fill me with confidence. The fact that he's still out there at events and stuff is a good sign, at the very least he'll be able to post some interviews because if he isn't an active journalist I cant see the industry sending him invites to these events anymore.

A 2 year old and an infant... AND a game that he is working on? If the only pod cast Steve ever made again would be for the release Spore, I would understand...

Granted I'm hoping he makes more, but I don't fault Steve at all for the slowing stream of updates.

Post by: Piloteer on November 26, 2006, 03:32:30 pm
Don't forget that between his game, caring for his two kids, spending time with his family, and going to these events, I'm sure he still enjoys sitting down and playing some games. After working so much and spending so much time on all of these things, he still deserves to enjoy some games, and I'm sure he'd rather spend his little free time doing that than making...say, a podcast.

Hopefully his schedule will become less hectic soon.
Title: Re: Next podcast?
Post by: Manna on November 26, 2006, 03:51:31 pm
yeh, but if he's still going to events like T-birds post says he is, then it seems pretty pointless to spend time doing the journalism thing, only to leave it on his hard drive instead of presenting it in some form to us. I know he's busy and I can understand that but I get the feeling he's holding off giving us these tidbits because he keeps saying "I'll do a new podcast this weekend" and doesn't have the time.

I agree if steve and his podcast do return it will be after christmas.

Does anybody else think that steve could have planned things better concerning his podcast ?

He must have known he was going to be busy, a baby doesnt happen overnight ;) upto nine months notice is given here in europe
not sure if the dates are the same in the us given the delays we get in europe aka ps3 , knowing the us you might get them earlier  ;)

apologies for the joke i thought it sounded funny  ;)

I suppose it was a choice of either giving the podcast a rest during this period or letting somebody else deputise for him while he's away. I guess its difficult to let go even if its for the benefit of his listeners.

Looking back the last time a podcast was on time was 19th june episode 56 the redmond hq vist.

3 podcasts in 6 months hmmmm

ps

i dont see lady m making any contributions so i assume its not gonna be soon

I don't know when the next one is coming, it could be anytime.  We send Steve forum updates and keep him informed of happenings. The last we heard he was working on things behind the scenes and he hasn't forgotten us. You have to remember that it is more than just a baby keeping Steve busy, he is also working on a game and he also has to travel for his work.

I have to agree with you devoid

real life issues babies job family life are far more important than a podcast

but he could have delegated the site and perhaps the podcast on a temp basis to somebody else whether it would have worked
who knows.

on a side note i noticed he's got his xbox gamer score upto 1335  :-[  slightly better than me at least he's still playing games  :)
although my friend link with him is still pending from august lol

I've figured out why Steve hasn't posted in over two months. Its so obvious! The answer's been there the whole time! This has nothing to do with the new game he's working on or his new baby. He's become addicted to MapleStory! I say its time for an intervention! Who's with me?

I somewhat agree with arkserver

I dont think anybody can criticise steve for spending this time with his family i would in his situation.

I do believe he could have organised things far better than whats happend.

He must have known he would be busy over this period he did give the indication that he wanted somebody to help out on the website he asked for submissions in essay form if my memory is right. Did he read any of them ? kinda pointless to ask and waste peoples time to subit an essay if nothing was to happen.

I think it could be sometime before we see steve on a regular basis back on the site he may do the odd podcast but his life will be very busy for the next few months and beyond. 

But saying all that i shall wait patiently for the next podcast :) His is the most informative that ive found and worth the wait

Happy christmas guys and gals

let's look at it like this

2: Christmass is on the way
3: Thanksgiving has also just occured, I think, I'm not sure when this great American holiday is...
4: because of 2+3 and maybe even 1 he and his wife might want to go see their respective families

All this means then guys going to be very busy, cut him some slack!

I agree with everything you said werechicken ! BUT

dont you think he could have organised things better ?

All the points you made are good ones but they dont happen over night

for a guy that seems so organised he's let himself down when it comes to the website podcast etc

So to recap!

no criticism for him taking time out with his family be it thanksgiving christmas or anything else
i would do the same.

but a big fat lump of criticism for not organising things better he had the opportunity earlier in the year

oh and happy christmas  :)

Werechicken, he's "just" had a baby for a couple months now. Christmas is probably a very busy time for him, though. I've defended Steve so far, but I'm switching to the "He's being negligent" crowd a week after the new year. That's enough time of failing to squeeze in a few hours to do a podcast, and it'll be after the holidays.

I still <3 him, though.
Title: Re: Next podcast?
Post by: LadyM on December 19, 2006, 02:44:05 pm
In case you haven't noticed, he has spent the last three days working on major updates to the forum. There is a lot of behind the scenes things that go on. I'd hardly call that negligent. He has even been posting more. Things seem to be getting back on track, have some faith.  ;)

i'm sorry, but i havn't been able to download that last few podcasts barly. i'm got stuck with a crappy ISP (our old one transfered us because they were going out of the dial-up business.) one of there anoying features is it automatically kicks you off every few hours becaouse of some security cr@p.

i would be happy if he like did 1 hour podcasts, and did them a little more often.

i was able to download enough of one of them to hear him say it's hard to find time for a 2 or 3 hour podcast. mayby if he did shorter ones he would be able to do them more often.

just my overpriced 2 cents.

Lots of ways to be dead in the world. Not necessarily dead dead, but "a wife, a kid and a job"-dead, which can lead to the same amount of online-deadness than a real demise. Let's face it, this podcasts was one man's hobby and a very time-consuming one. Good luck to him with his family and job, creating 59 podcasts with high quality content was fantastic, but no podcast lasts forever.

Long story short ... the server wasn't working and I couldn't really even post to the site, and it was just getting worse and worse (which is why I turned off the commenting a few weeks ago on the main site). I couldn't update the site because I couldn't GET into the backed of the site ... it was that bad. Well, after rebuilding the server and upping the memory the server finally seems to be working better than ever and is finally back to normal.

Now I'm just going to update the backend blog software to the latest version (hopefully today), make sure it works, and then updates will begin again! And then so much more...

Maybe this will help. He was having server problems and he couldn't do the updates. That probably affected the podcasts too. If you've noticed, he has been posting in the last few days and he is still working on the forum, the server and the site. Maybe it won't be too much longer. Got to have all the equipment working to make it happen.  ;)

he is spending time with his family and working hard on his new project.

i still have his podcast on my itunes list. since he hasnt made a podcast in months does itunes have a policy of deleting his podcast from the server if he hasnt uploaded a podcast in X amount of time ?

Uh.. why are you looking at me like that?

NOOO!

Ok, ok, I take it back, I take it back!

But seriously though, I'm sure Steve has a good reason for this. He COULD do it, not SHOULD.

The lack of even a brief post explaining what is going on is pretty surprising

Have any of you even listen to the podcasts? He has a family to raise! He's got a job to do!

We will keep his forums warm until he makes more podcasts.

So don't go off mouthing "I have a family but I still have so much free time that I can make posts here and there".

It's rather annoying.

For the record, he has posted explanations. I guess when you don't check other threads or other pages of THIS THREAD EVEN, it would appear he hasn't been around in months.

Steve has not forgotten about the forum, the site or the podcast. He doesn't have a place to record a podcast right now but that is being solved soon. Remember he said that in the last podcast? Well with a new baby, there is no where quiet in his apt. to do that. There will be more podcasts when he gets a place to record.

As far as the front page, he needs new blogging software that allows him to keep his current information and that has been a problem. He currently does alot of work behind the scenes on the forum. Have patience and faith, things will get back to normal.  :)

I wouldn't say dead as much as in a coma. Not a very deep one, either. Steve still shows signs of life, and while he's active on the inside, on the outside it appears as though he's just sitting in a bed. He could wake up at any time, though. All we can do is wait.

tbh none of the posts he's replied to hold any interest for me

since he is now posting on the forums how about the main news posts

i did read somwhere he was having difficulty for one reasan or another creating new posts
on the news section.

The last update was october although its been longer than that since we've had regular news items.  good to see him back and while this site isnt dead its definately in hospital needing some tlc

I made a post earlier in this thread, did you read it? He is unable to update the front page until he gets new blogging software. He is unable to make a podcast until he finds a place to record it. Both of these concerns are being worked on. Solutions don't always come quickly. He reads the forum on a regular basis. He works behind the scenes on the server and the forum software. He is in touch with us and available when we (the moderators) need him.

The site seems to be doing fine. We get new members daily and the regulars are still here having fun.  :)

thanks for the update about steve lady m i knew it was something like that  ;)

Does it really take 4+ months  to get new blogging software ?

I think he's just enjoying the rest from the website and spending time with his family.

I understand that comment more than its taken 4 months to get new blogging software lol but im just cynical

i keep checking the website several times aweek the news section might change one of these days  ;) ;)







Title: Re: Next podcast?
Post by: LadyM on February 19, 2007, 04:17:09 am
I think the problem with the bogging software is finding one that will allow him to keep his past writings and work with the website format, otherwise he loses everything in his history. The forum and website still has been buggy. It probably wouldn't take four months if that was all he had to do but he does have the family and babies take a lot of time.

Don't be cynical, it'll be okay  ;) When he gets back and we get a new podcast we'll have a forum party.  :D

Why in the world should I have to scour the site to see words not written by Steve (like I would know who speaks for him other than himself) to see what Steve himself is up to. So he has time to talk to admins about his whereabouts, but not 120 seconds to get on here and tell folks himself. Yup, in your universe I guess that makes perfect sense.

I admire Steve for devoting more attention to his 6-month old son and his new game project, than to me and other fans of his podcast. I would love to hear another episode (even if it's not Steve; I think it would be interesting to hear LadyM's voice at least once). But if I get to hear a session report about how Steve's toddler pwned him at a game, that would be worth the wait as well.

(Since the toddler has Steve's genes, the little Glicker tyke will probably have earned all the achievements on his daddy's Xbox 360 titles before his first birthday...)

I forgot his answers so I went back and listened again. He recommended Guild Wars, Warcraft3, Half Life 2, Hero's of Might and Magic 5 and Ticket to Ride.

Out of those 5 I did get Ticket to Ride and I enjoyed it. I did a write up in the PC section. I still play it once in awhile. I have found some other PC games with multi-player that are fun, some are older but fun all the same. ParaWorld, Star Wars Galactic Battleground, Rise of Nations, Star Wars Empire at War are a few of them. I'm still playing Civ4 though.  :)
