    0041: A New Year and a New Pixel Power Podcast

    0041: A New Year and a New Pixel Power Podcast

    It's a new year and a new Pixel Power Podcast. What's new? For one, I set a timer for 20 minutes and do my best to stick to it. Get it? 20 for 2020? There's also a new web site for the podcast at the original URL: https://www.pixelpowerpodcast.com. The new look comes from the website's move from Google Sites to GitHub pages. The design is minimal but more functional and easier to maintain.

    Some things stay the same. You will still find a main topic (in this episode I discuss pixel and Google related holiday gifts given and received), the Addendum segment where I talk about living a pixel-powered life, and the same quality show notes you've come to expect. It's now in a more compact version. I hope you like the changes. Be sure to use the feedback options (described at the bottom of the page) to let me know what you think.

    0040: Holiday Hiatus

    [2019-12-18] It’s the last episode of the year before I head off for a holiday hiatus and I’ve got some news for the new year. No main topic this episode, but an extended addendum. Think of it as a stocking full of Google goodies!
