Okay, here's the deal. Tonight, March 16, I did my regular hour long podcast starting at exactly 8pm pt.
Before the show I, as usual, tested all the equipment and the stream. All were working just fine. Approximately 3 minutes before the show however I noticed a weird flash on my computer screen and a flickering of all the icons, cursor, etc. Very strange. But nonetheless, I did the show.
It turns out that the show did not broadcast and, even more strangely, did not even record. I have no idea what happened...people just kept getting a loading error on the live stream. And, my streaming company said they did not experience any problems at that time.
I suspect I may have been hacked or somehow interfered with through my computer.
It could have been anybody, I suppose...as I have a whole gaggle of trolls from a forum I used to frequent that are out to either hurt me or silence me as best they can...or it could even have been an attack because of my political views.
I may need to return to a streaming provided that I once used in the past. They have a very high level of cyber security in place that would, I am sure, be able to remedy the situation. However, they are quite expensive and right now...because of a lot of extra prescription costs from my recent medical issues... I can not afford an expensive server.
I am really bummed about this and I hope I can get it resolved. I will keep you posted. I do have the first two episodes of Blue Moon and I will post them on the site shortly.
