listen.pls deleted

Post by Flack » Sat May 10, 2014 7:05 am

Back when the Don Rogers show was streaming I added a shortcut on my desktop to the stream. For some reason the shortcut is named "listen.pls" (I always read it as "listen, please!" and the icon is VLC's, which is a giant orange traffic cone. I have an odd number of icons on my desktop and because of this I am always moving it around and it sticks out like a sore thumb. Sometimes I move it to the right hand side and sometimes I move it to below all the others, but I've kept it on my desktop all this time in hopes of the show returning.

The last time I moved it (a couple of months ago) I made a point of looking up when the last DR show aired -- May, 2013. I made a deal with myself. I would move the icon somewhere else, but if there wasn't a show in one year's time, I would get over it and delete it.

Welp, May's here, and unfortunately, I'm back to an even number of icons on my desktop again. I think one of the stages of grieving is acceptance. That's the one I hit this morning. RIP, Don.

The show is down for retooling.
Above all else... We shall go on... And continue!

Oh, is that what they're calling it?

This show has been "retooled" more often than HEALTHCARE.GOV. I have seen cars needing constant maintenance be retooled less than this show.
