I just would like to say that I've been a listener for quite some time already and your podcast gets better and better over time. I subscribe to maybe 3-5 podcasts and yours is the best when it comes to in-depth discussion on PC matters.
Please keep up the excellent work! I hope sometime soon I can download your twit videos
Thanks for the great feedback! We'll be recording another tonight!

might want to check out J&W Mini-ITX 780G
just as big as the Ion board you guys tested
AMD Phenom X4 9850 Black Edition, GA-MA790FX-DS5, HD 4870 512MB GDDR5, OCZ Gold XTC 4GB PC6400 Dual Channel (2x2GB), VelociRaptor 150GB , Corsair 620HX 620W, Windows 7 Ultimate RC 64-bit
I haven't been able to catch the live podcast lately, but I like when you show hardware. You can also show more if you have video download sometime in the future.
Really enjoy the podcast and the site.
How is Laramie?
I haven't been back to Laramie since I graduated with my BS EE.
Laramie has been amazingly rainy as of late. Glad the drought seems to be over! Mosquitoes haven't taken us over so far. What year did you graduate?
Usually there is an unofficial rebroadcasting of the podcast, but Ryan has been recovering from his trip. Pure trauma apparently.
Whoops, lighting in the area. Gotta shut the machines down!
Loved the show this week, but what was up with Colleen's attitude? Really put me off, listening to her. Sounded like she wanted to hit Allyn. Didn't seem very professional.
I particularly enjoyed the bit about the new AMD cpus, thanks!
Huh, I guess I never noticed any sort of tension or bad attitude? I thought the podcast/video went pretty swimingly, other than the obvious technical difficulties brought about by a large distance (Taiwan) and lightning (it jacked Allyn's sound).
The AMD CPUs are interesting, especially the Athlon II. Here's hoping they get that lineup running like it should. I bet in about 4 weeks that we will see some parts that will be VERY overclocking happy. It typically takes a month or so for AMD to start making low level changes to their process and design to really get it running like it should.
Allyn and I have been personal friends since well before he was ever associated with PC Perspective, and in fact I introduced him to it. I love Allyn dearly and he knows it .
Not that if he and I disagree, there is a 99% chance that he is right and I am wrong. He is freakishly smart.
Keep in mind while co hosting on the show I also am...
- running the camera switching
- writing the lower thirds
- engaging double boxes and live sets
- pulling up web pages
- pulling up voice mail audio
- running the mixer to make everyone gets mix minus audio
- monitoring audio levels to make sure one clips
- using one computer to record multitrack audio
- using another computer to recording of encoded h.264 video
- using another computer to stream to Stickam
- using another computer to stream to ustream
- using ANOTHER computer to stream to BitGravity
- Monitoring three chat rooms
- making sure four separate computers have live skype connections to the other hosts, and calling them back if they drop off
I am still getting used to being comfortable and relaxed while being on camera while doing all of that. It may make me seem a bit quick or stressed. Though it may not seem like it, I am camera shy and nervous on air.
I think I am getting better though

Well, I think you do perfectly fine. It seems the only issues we have are usually out of your hands (lightning, Taipei internet, my singing...).
And yes, I believe that I should watch my intake on podcast night... too many beers last night and too much unfiltered content on my part. My apologies.
I am going to switch to an over the ear mic so that my audio is more consistent in volume. I seem to be incapable of keeping my mouth super close to the Heil pr-40 when I am engineering and talking at the same time
