Bandwidth issues...

I got an email from podomatic today telling me that I've run out of my monthly allowance of bandwidth already. Apparently, some people were getting messages saying that they couldn't listen to the podcast and asking them to go donate to me so I could continue to put out the show. So sorry about that. More people downloaded these first two episodes than I had anticipated. That's a good thing, right? So I immediately went out an upgraded my podomatic account so it shouldn't be an issue. For now. This might mean that I start some kind of donation incentive or something.

So thanks for running me out of bandwidth. Everything should be okay now.
