The Adventure Calendar - 2013

It's back. The adventure calendar from the "Doctor Who" website is out.


For those of you who are not familair with the adveture calendar, let me explain it this way. It's based on the advent calendar and with 25 "doors" on it. With each calendar day you open each door. Starting on Dec. 1st you open  one door, and each day after you open an additional door until all the doors are opened on Dec. 25th (Christmas Day).

Behind each door could be a saying, part of a story or even a small gift.

Well the Adventure calendar is the same thing but, since it is on the "Doctor Who" website every door has something "Doctor Who" related to it.  It could be a link to wallpapers, links to video clips, etc...


Now that you know what it's about here is the link to this year's Adventure Calendar:

Time of the Doctor - new trailer - (Spoilers!!!)

Today (Dec. 11, 2013) BBC has released the new trailer for the upcoming Chrismas special "The Time of the Doctor".


Warning: There are spoilers about many of the monsters in it and some dialog about the story in the clip. SPOILERS ARE IN CLIP!

It can be found here:


If someone knows how to embed the clip, please feel free to do so. Just be sure to place it lower on the page so it doesn't show up immediately so that those who want to remain "spoiler-free" can avoid the clip.



The clip can also been seen on YouTube here:

Enhanced Podcast Features and Tandem With The Random

How do you listen to audio podcasts? Are you taking advantage of the features of the enhanced podcast format? In other words, accessing the chapters, embedded images and links? The reason I am asking is because all signs point to the fact that Apple is phasing this format out. Their latest Podcast app doesn't seem to support it. Oh, it will play fine, and it will still sound better than the plain mp3 version, but the aforementioned features are absent. Also their latest version of GarageBand has removed the tools to create those features for enhanced podcasts.
