BBC and General Woes

Tags: ,
BBC iPlayer is having technical difficulties at the moment. Just trying to check the radio schedule for the upcoming week is an exercise in frustration since program pages will sometime load but mostly give error messages. So I'll get the Radio post as soon as I can but BBC may not be able to fix things over the weekend. I was actually going to be on schedule this week! It's not my fault this time!

Oh well. In other news... I got nothing. I've been trying to make real progress on the dissertation again but just can't seem to get going. It's just a slog when I'm not in the groove and so hard to get there and the lack of progress makes me stressed, depressed, etc. which makes it harder to get anything done and makes me generally unhappy. Hopefully I'll get going soon as summer is almost over!

I've been reading the flist but my apologies for not commenting lately, especially to those of you having a hard time. I keep meaning to, but the general feeling of stress and not getting anywhere takes it toll in lots of ways and I just haven't been up to it.


A work in progress

Thinking of you and your writing. I've been a bit stuck this week, too, only managing 50 new words on my article. Bah! I decided to take today off from worries and leave those for a weekday.

Here's hoping the player gets back online soon so you can enjoy your Sunday!

Thanks. I'll get there. Today's PhD comic is definitely on topic.

iPlayer is mostly working again. I might get to the post tomorrow evening. We'll see.

Ah, it is iPlayer then and not my connection! I fussed around for ages yesterday and got half a radio program out of it before it gave up the ghost again! It was a pity because I had to clean the kitchen which is one of my rare radio opportunities.

Sorry about the dissertation woes- they are such hard work to keep going on.

Definitely iPlayer and not you. It should be working again now. It was supposedly fixed sometime this morning but it is taking them time to get through the backlog of stuff and upload everything that aired while things were down. A couple of the programs I wanted from Sunday have just been added within the past hour or two and at least one is still missing. Hopefully it will be up soon and maybe everything you wanted is there now?
