Podcasts and Spreadsheets and Twitter, OH MY!

A lot has been going on lately. So let me get right to it.

First, there's the podcast. is in full swing. I have purchased a new Audio-Technica AT2020 microphone and a Nady MPF-6 pop filter. They should be here in time for the next episode.

Our laptop crapped out on us (power button isn't working) so instead of recording in the quiet of the living room, we had to rely on my computer desk which has two towers running on it. That creates a lot of background noise which irritated me throughout the whole recording. I just never felt comfortable.

Work has gone well. Last week our boss came to us requesting that we increase the goal we had already set for the month. A goal, mind you, that I was convinced we wouldn't reach. Basically that came down to me miscalculating the number of days we still had left. Come yesterday's deadline and we beat his increased goal and then some. I was pretty excited. Our prize for this? No not a raise. No not a bonus. No not a day off. A couple CostCo pizzas. WOW. We are a bunch of monkeys.

I've found twitter recently but I haven't mentioned it here at all. Basically it's a bunch of mini-blogs. Works great when you don't have the time to spend posting a long blog about your day or your latest rant, rave, or obsession. Instead just answer a question: What are you doing right now? Of course, lots of people just answer each other. The one thing it misses that really sucks is a search feature. You can't search for people. You just look up people's friends (mine for example), look at their friends, their friends friends, etc. and add people you know, have heard of or care to hear about what they're day is like. Most all of my friends are podcast related. Either podcasters or podcast listeners. Go check it out anyways. If you ever miss me and wonder what my latest thoughts or actions are, you'll read it there.

Well, that's it for now. It's getting late. Love you all. Good night.
