Oh and all the old show files have been switched out with the newer slimer versions as well. Yay for compression!

Oops, I'm only able to get the first 28 minutes or so (tried downloading twice, with Firefox and wget). Caching problem?

Old man rabbit?

I've had this problem before as well. Sometimes it seems to download correctly sometimes not. I would kinda like to see a size put up in the post so that at least I know if I'm downloading the full version.

Good show!

Podcast is around 36.6 megs.

Thanks for the opportunity Shawn. And thanks for editing most of my rambling out! Have a great time in India, let us know how that 360 launch goes.

On playback, we had about 45 minutes of perfectly usable stuff, you need to get on that Podcast of yours, pronto!
