Click Here to download ERS-2012-10-31 #311 As much of the East Coast gets slammed by hurricane Sandy, our thoughts are with everyone in its path. The storm is even reaching Chicago, as waves on Lake Michigan yesterday were at epic heights. I sure hope that the east coast is able to bounce back from this storm as its reach was quite large. The damage it will cause to everything below ground is going to be in the billions of dollars as elevator shafts and subway systems take on water. It will be weeks before things get back to normal and if anyone in our industry is in need, send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or send me a text message.
We only have audio this week. The video is converted but our Blip.tv Channel is down, I'm assuming which is directly related to Sandy. Once it comes back on line, I'll upload and embed the show into the post.
Special thanks to the companies who have donated goodies to the prize pack giveaway!
