I now have an AudioBoo account & will post boos when I can. Go here to listen to my boos and also to subscribe to them.

I’m at I Knit today & hope to record some interviews while I’m there. They’ll be uploaded to AudioBoo :)

Dealing with Comment Spammers

Posted in Uncategorized on September 7th, 2009 by Marie Irshad – Be the first to comment

My blogs have been subject to attacks from spammers over the past
five days. Their comments didn't make it to the publishing stage
because TypePad has been excellent at recognising spam. However, I have
comment notification by email and was getting all of the spammy
comments that way. There were so many of them hogging my email that I
couldn't find actual emails that people had sent which was really

As a result of all this I've had to close comments
and trackbacks on all of my blog posts for both blogs. I'm only going
to enable comments for recent posts in the future. Sadly, this is
something that I'm going to just have to keep an eye on in the future.

A little something from my trip to the Knitting and Stitching Show. I just have to remember how to update my RSS feed etc. Expect this sometime over the weekend :)

Cross posted from my blog at Scifiville. Good news – I will be going to the Knitting & Stitching Show next
week :) I’m doing some stuff for my dayjob but will also be recording some interviews for KnitCast. No,
really, it really is returning to the podways. So that means I’ll be
curing RSS feeds all over again! Oh joy…

Where’s KnitCast?

KnitCast is still delayed, mainly because at the moment I’m in New York on vacation! Pop over to my personal knitting blog for New York updates.

KnitCast Update!

Posted in Uncategorized on June 9th, 2007 by Marie Irshad – 6 Comments

This would have been available earlier Friday but have I mentioned how much I dislike writing my RSS feed?!

When exactly is KnitCast coming back and what’s coming up? Take a listen!

Show Notes

Send your NYC suggestions to (remember to replace AT with @ to remove spam trap) If you’ve emailed that address before and had a "This mail box is full message", I’ve now fixed that.

All suggestions on RSS feed generators accepted – (I use an Apple Mac btw). I’ll probably try Libsyn’s one first and see how that goes. At the moment I’m writing it sort of manually-ish and having issues. There must be a better, easier way!

Such A Bad Podcaster…

Posted in Podcasting on May 22nd, 2007 by Marie Irshad – 5 Comments

Yes this is a little addition to the post on my personal blog.

Firstly, yes there will be a new edition of KnitCast this month.

Secondly, I’m going on holiday to New York City in July and hope to record some interviews while I’m there! I’ll be there for the first
week of July and I have some ideas for interviews and I’ll be
contacting people soon about those. However I do want to leave the
majority of my trip for shopping! It’ll be my third visit to NYC and my
second trip to the Garment District. I’m really looking forward to it!
Let’s hope I don’t go over my baggage weight allowance on the way home!

If You Missed Wales in Stitches

Posted in Uncategorized on March 12th, 2007 by Marie Irshad – 2 Comments

You can still hear it online on demand at . Just go to Listen Live or Listen Online on the page, click one of those links and then scroll down until you find Wales in Stitches. It should hopefully remain there until Wed 21st March.

Just a reminder again that the programme is available via streaming Real Media, not as a podcast, so you’ll need Real Player to hear it.
