Yeah, it\'s sad that Wells hasn\'t done any more of these. The series is amazing.

And his intro music is so much better than the music used in design*sponge or Metropolis\'s podcasts!

Sorry I had a break in the podcast schedule. I\'m writing a book on Harwell Hamilton Harris and that is taking up a lot of my \"extra\" time. But I am keeping the podcast going, perhaps only monthly through mid-2007, when I will return to a twice-each-month schedule. Thanks for the condolences!

Months and months go by, and we wait for you to return. Perhaps you should change your name to something more Beckettsian.
