Update: At home, but weeks of recovery

Well, out of the hospital and recuperating at home with a wound-vac attached to my leg. Unfortunately, that means a few more weeks of unpaid time off of my day job. I've been running The Daily .WAV for over 20 years (actually started in late '95/early '96, but only started archiving the WAVs in '99), and have never had a pay-wall or any kind of fees or subscriptions.

Help Hunter Recover From Surgery

As many of you know, I've had necrotizing fasciitis twice in the past 14 years. Each of those times I had a well-paying jobs and insurance to cover everything. I was laid off in 2017, and not finding work, went through savings, had to rejoin the hourly wage force with no insurance. That means no income during my time in the hospital and no income while recuperating, which could be up to 3 months. Anything can help!

New format and player

As I'm sure you've noticed, some Quotes have a little player attached to them and some don't. Well, "thanks" (he said sarcastically) to the latest Windows 10 update, I no longer have the ability to save .WAV files with MP3 compression. So, I'm going to be putting all new files on the site as MP3s. I'm also going to be going back to all the files I've updated over the past 2 years and re-doing those as MP3s as well, but that's gonna take a bit of time to convert them all.

Not dead yet

Hey, I'm still alive (yay!). Still in the hospital, but finally have limited internet access. I will try to get some stuff online this week though!

Basically, just like what happened 12 years ago to my left leg, I contracted necrotizing fasciitis again but in the right leg this time. Had a few surgeries on the leg, and there will be at least one more for a skin graft. Whee (he said sarcastically).

Thank you all for putting up with the lack of new content while I deal with this shit.

This is sucking more than the server issues...

So... I'm about to go into surgery for necrotizing fasciitis in just a bit. Content updates will be few and far between until I'm well enough to start posting new content. In a way it's like that constant phrase from the BSG reboot: all of this has happened before. But I sure hope it never happens again. (For relevance, I had the same surgery years ago on my other leg.)

Whew!

Well, that was certainly not fun. Nothing like a database that decides to get corrupt when you're trying to do some updates. As you can see, I've gotten the database fixed and decided to do some updating to the look of the site as well.

The updating of the look/feel is not totally complete, however enough is there for the site to be functional so that everyone can use it again. I will also be back-filling the missed dates throughout the week and that should start tomorrow (Monday) night.

Thanks to all of you for being patient during the past week!
