I know that users with Internet Explorer don't see this page properly.  Believe it or not this message should be at the top of the page, not below  the left column. With not much chance to fix that we've decided that it's time to move.

I'm working on the new Pilotcast blog to replace this one.  (I can hear the cheers already.)

It's going to take a lot of time to fully flesh out, but then this one took way too much to time just posting each page of show notes.  In the long run we'll be better off with new one, which will be a standard Wordpress blog.

If you want to peek in through the peep hole visit:   http://www.pilotcast.com/wp

Keep in mind that it's being built, so you may get a an error once in a while.  If so please check back.

Let me know what you think. In particular if it looks bad to you and the problem isn't fixed shortly please let me know right away.

We'll be cutting over to the new blog A.S.A.P.
