Delayed upload of podcasts  and playlists caused by complete failure of PC used to record and edit sound and webpages. It's taken a few days to buy a new PC and to find, install and test the compatible editing tools, and to live a life as well (at Fusion Prog all weekend in Stourport on Severn). Playlists are still to be typed but, as of 1745 on Monday 6th March 2022, the podcasts should play...
