Funny you should ask, I checked with the station when the show didn’t get e-mailed to me right away. Turns out although the show was recorded for whatever reason the file was never saved.

So like a missing tooth unfortunately there is a gaping hole in my archives meaning that a lot of you missed the wisdom of NeoNeocon, the commentary of Tom of Libertarian Leanings and the comments of my state rep Steve DiNatale, it is your loss.

And I totally deny that the file is missing because of the references we made to events at Northwestern University in an attempt to make sure my 86 year old Sicilian mother couldn’t reference the recording.

If anyone for any reason happened to record it I would be very happy to relieve them of a copy of it…

…just keep it away from my mother.

And the people it is for know who they are:

I made it a point to make a change in my About DaTechGuy and DaBlog section to add the following:

Remember this blog does not exist for people to act out personal feuds if you want to do that do it elsewhere.

Let me tell you why this is here. We bloggers who attended CPAC keep in touch to some degree and a while back one person mentioned a post that they considered important on a topic they care about. I saw the post and its on a topic I write about too so I liked it.

Very quickly a series of comments on that post came up a person (also a blogger) attacking said CPAC blogger, I found a bit obsessive it interesting but that’s ok, people go back and forth on subjects a lot. i answered the person for a while but it didn’t stop. I contacted the CPAC blogger and got some background on the situation. After a bit the CPAC blogger got into it and it went back and forth to the point were it became a distraction from me, particularly since I had moved way on. I declared the conversation over.

Earlier this week the actual subject of the post (who was not either blogger) posted on the post, I approved and answered and didn’t think anything of it. I’ve been busy with the show and my personal live and there have been a flood of comments because due to some very kind links by Glenn and others. In the flood of comments a few days ago my CPAC friend left one on that post. Without noticing I approved it as I had a ton of comments to go through at a stop between selling. Now the other person started again and I could see where this was going so I didn’t approve them.

That’s been followed by a series of comments on me not allowing those comments, this morning I awoke to another one, it is going in the Spam folder. So let me make it perfectly clear one more time:

That conversation is over, that post is two weeks old, this blog doesn’t exist for feuding people to hit each other, I have neither the time nor the inclination to referee such activity. If you want to rant about me, that’s fine its my blog, if you want to rant against a CPAC friend I’m not interested. Lucky for you it’s a big internet and you have many other platforms to feed your obsession including your own blog, but any further such stuff will go in the spam folder. If you want to argue let me refer you to an exchange from a certain TV show that I like to quote:

5th doctor: “That’s hardly an argument…”

Terileptil: “It’s not supposed to be an argument, it’s a statement“.

Build a readership and start a crusade and enjoy it, just don’t do it here.

Andrew Breitbart will be speaking at 9. I have the show from 10-noon and then there is Ayaan Hirshi ali speaking at 12:15. and of course Allen West’s keynote tonight.

I have to hit the vendor room one more time to hit the folks I missed. This time I HAVE to get back to my hotel get packed to check out find a church and to catch a 1 p.m. flight (or is it noon? my notes are in my hotel).

If you are at CPAC and want to put in your two cents and see a Fedora with a Sicilian attached to it, stop me for a quick interview.

…So I am in the process of picking up a substitute guest, (waiting for confirmation will update you as soon as the name is confirmed. But we will be live here from the GOP Grassroots 2011 conference, I have confirmed a special guest from the great state of North Carolina tonight and our first blogger panel will be this evening in the 2nd hour.

Due to BC Basketball DaTechGuy on DaRadio will be delayed by 30 minutes on New Years day. The show will run from 9:30 to 10:30 p.m. on Saturday Evening.

This means I’ll likely be leaving the open house tomorrow around 8:15 or so and get back home about 11:15 for the tail end of the party.

I’ve been so busy with my show I missed my two-year Blog anniversary on Nov 29th, but I was wide awake today when the Blog crossed the 300,000 hit plateau. Of the 300,192 hits as of about 6:30 a.m. 244,845 have come since January 1st of this year.

Thanks to every single one of you who have gotten me to this point. Those hits led to the radio show and the ads I have been able to sell. So every one of you are the reason why my mortgage is paid.

I won’t forget it.
