Episode 19 – News and Micro Topics

We start out with our usual dash of news from the forums. Rather than one main topic, however, we focus on some of the shorter topics recently suggested in our forums.
We discuss:

Episode 17 – Take Three!

Apparently you can only attach 1 media file per post in the RSS2 feed, and since the Infected PDF was the second thing I attached it took over.. Just like Sigler, I tell ya!!

So, here is the actual podcast episode… again.. I tried once before and it didn’t seem to take. So I just renamed the file, and we’ll see what happens!

Episode is a bit late… but there was an injury involved, so please don’t debuff us 🙂
This episode is part one of a two part interview with a friend of ours dedicated to villains!

Sorry, time is up and I had to remove the file from the post and the server. You can still listen to the book for free on Scott’s site though! I just found out that the limited time was on Random House/Crown’s side — but we are allowed to mirror it indefinitely. So, I’ve put it back up 🙂

Please pardon our mess! Part deux

In case anybody tried to surf around the site or register tonight; sorry about any problems. I was doing some major testing on forums, blog, and gallery integration.

I wasn’t completely satisfied with the results, so I just reverted everything back to the was it was before I started messing with it. I have a lot of editing and real world work to do tomorrow, so not sure if I’ll be able to work on it again until mid-week.
