Ericast 147 - Big VR-Plus FAIL

What happens when your podcaster has a problem with the tool he plans to use to help him make his podcast? Well... he makes a podcast about it.

I had super-high hopes for VR+ from ShapeServices but ran into a teeny tiny problem: The recordings disappeared.

That's not cool.

I have no idea what happened to the files that it uploaded to imtransfer.im4mobile.com -- as of this writing, my first and second one are giving 404 errors but the third one (which I left unpublished) is fine. Weird.

I'm not too demanding; I understand that technology isn't perfect. But when something just plain doesn't work (and there's nothing out there like a "Shape Services status blog" or such)... now what?

So, I'm back to where I started from... unless I have better luck playing with this in the next couple of weeks... but at that point, what's the point in buying it if it just keeps on working in a "kinda-sorta okay" way?
