[ Listen to the interview here ]

The other day our friend Richard Tanner, who wrote the excellent Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Macintosh (HHGTTM) series for, invited me to be on his podcast. It was a ton of fun and we had a great time talking about my history with Macs and Apple and about how the Maccast came to be. I want to thank him for asking me to be on his show.

As for his show, any of you Mac historians out there you should really check it out. Richard took the complete series he wrote here and adapted it to podcast form. I have to say it came out great. He has also added some more recent content to the series, bringing it up to date with the latest developments from Cupertino. When you get a chance head on over, take a listen to the interview, and be sure to subscribe if you like what you hear.

    Hi there. I’d like to thank Adam for joining me on my Podcast to do the interview. However, Apple have blocked my .Mac account for exceeding bandwidth limits – so if you do to the site, you will be unable to get the show.
    However, in the mean time I suggest subscribing to the Podcast feed via iTunes, and as soon as my account is unblocked, you will be able to get the Podcast – subscribe to the Podcast here…

    I have now upgraded my .Mac account and added more bandwidth to my allowance, so hopefully this will not happen again!

    Would love to listen but Both iTunes and your website are not streaming/online?

    Adam, Could you have a look at the Maccast site as viewing it in Safari is a nightmare, disappearing links when you mouse over and will only return upon a refresh?

    Cheers guys

    I am aware of the Safari bug and I have my developer looking into it. Will patch it soon

    Hi – iTunes still doesn’t seem to allow users to download Richard’s HHGTM podcast. Any news of when this may be available?

  5. Richard Tanner | Aug 05 2007 - 09:36

    Not heard from Apple yet, but from what I understand the site and podcast will be back up on 16th August. I am working on getting some more bandwidth and maybe moving the Podcast off .Mac – though I would be sad if this was necessary.
    In the meantime, please subscribe to the feed and shows will filter into your iTunes as soon as Apple unblock my site!

    Hi all – HHGTTM is back online. Someone nice at .Mac has reset my monthly quota – I will be keeping an eye on my quota in future!
