I was planning on doing some more tutorials for today but my DSL connection went down last night and just came back up a few hours ago. Funny how much we rely on our broadband connections once we get them. I have my copy of Radio loaded at home and set up for remote access (so I can post during the day) and with DSL down, and no ability to re-start the router, I was out of the loop all day. Very depressing.
Important fix for Radio 8 users. After yesterday's corner-turn, the link from the Cloud Links section of the desktop website home page no longer points to your referers page. Although a page would render, it would not contain any referers. Thanks to Greg Hanek for the very clear report. I had seen mention of this on other blogs, so it was pretty clear there was a problem, but Greg pointed me right to it, and I was able to fix it quickly. To get back in the referer loop, please Update Radio.root, and then refresh your desktop website home page. The Referers link should take you to the correct place, as shown in this screen shot.

Here are two quotes from one of my favorite movies --
And that's how it came to pass, that on the second-to-last day of the job, the convict crew that tarred the plate factory roof in the spring of '49 wound up sitting in a row at ten o'clock in the morning, drinking icy cold Bohemmen style beer, courtesy of the hardest screw that ever walked a turn at Shawshank State Prison.
The colossal prick even managed to sound magnanimous. We sat and drank with the sun on our shoulders, and felt like free men. Hell, we could'a been tarring the roof of one of our own houses. We were the Lords of all Creation. As for Andy, he spent that break hunkered in the shade, a strange little smile on his face, watching us drink his beer.
You could argue he'd done it to curry favor with the guards. Or maybe make a few friends among us cons. Me, I think he did it just to feel normal again... if only for a short while.
In 1966, Andy Dufresne escaped from Shawshank Prison.
All they found of him was a muddy set of prison clothes, a bar of soap, and an old rock-hammer damn near worn down to the nub.
I remember thinking it would take a man six hundred years to tunnel through the wall with it. Andy did it in less than twenty.
Oh, Andy loved geology. I imagine it appealed to his meticulous nature. An ice age here, a million years of mountain-building there.
Geology is the study of pressure and time. That's all it takes, really. Pressure and time. And a big damn poster. Like I said. In prison, a man'll do most anything to keep his mind occupied.
It turns out Andy's favorite hobby was totin' his wall out into the exercise yard a handful at a time... I guess after Tommy was killed, Andy decided he'd been here just about long enough.
Andy crawled to freedom through five hundred yards of shit-smelling foulness I can't even imagine. Or maybe I just don't want to.
Five hundred yards. That's the length of five football fields. Just shy of half a mile.
The next morning, right about the time Racquel was spilling her little secret...a man nobody ever laid eyes on before strolled into the Maine National Bank. Until that moment, he didn't exist -- except on paper.
He had all the proper I.D. Driver's license, birth certificate, social security card. And, the signature was a spot-on match.
Mr. Stevens visited nearly a dozen banks in the Portland area that morning. All told, he blew town with better than 370 thousand dollars of Warden Norton's money. Severance pay for nineteen years.
I like to think the last thing that went through his [Warden Norton's] head...other than that bullet...was to wonder how the hell Andy Dufresne ever got the best of him.
Not long after the warden deprived us of his company, I got a postcard in the mail. It was blank. But the postmark said, "Forth Handcox, Texas."
Forth Handcox. Right on the border. That's where Andy crossed. When I picture him heading south in his own car with the top down, it makes me laugh all over again...
Andy Dufresne, who crawled through a river of shit and came out clean on the other side. Andy Dufresne, headed for the Pacific.
Those of us who knew him best talk about him often. I swear, the stuff he pulled.
Sometimes it makes me sad, though, Andy being gone. I have to remind myself that some birds aren't meant to be caged, that's all. Their feathers are just too bright...and when they fly away, the part of you that knows it was a sin to lock them up does rejoice...but still, the place you live is that much more drab and empty that they're gone.
