Coming out BOL listening hiatus, what did I miss?

by alchemistmuffin / May 14, 2010 9:50 AM PDT

Hi there.

I used to listen to BOL every day, until last year in June, when iTunes started messing up the "uber" feed of all cnet podcasts. I had no choice to stop listening to BOL or any of CNET podcast, until the problem was fixed....
Well, I appearntley did not realize that problem was fixed a long time ago, but completely forgot about it until today when I heard that Tom Merritt was leaving CNET (from someone in Twitter)

Could anyone tell me why he is leaving? Also, who has joined (or left) CNET or BOL within last 12 months, as well as any shows that has been cancelled, or postponed, etc.

Last episode I remember, was the 970th episode, and although I want to listen to all the episode up to current to catch up, my mind tells me that is impossible. So, what are the important key episodes I need to listen to catch up?

What are you talking about?

I have listened through iTunes for years with never a problem!

Perhaps a thing or two has happened!

In reply to: Huh?

iTunes kept syncing podcasts, even the ones I have listened to. It was a huge bug on iTunes that in the end, forced me to just delete the feed altogether and wait out for a while.

Well, that waiting for while turned into waiting almost one year....

So, I need to know what happened at CNET since last June, when I started to have issues that forced me to stop subscribing for time being.....

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
