LN-QRM #28: Experimental Program

I know, I know… It’s been a while since we posted a show. I’ve been doing a lot of travel for work lately, which means that I’m away from the studio a lot. We are actually up to show 30, I just need to get them processed and posted. So, expect shows to come fast and furious!

LN-QRM #27: Hangin’ Out

We tried something new tonight. We used the “Hangout” feature of Google+. A “Hangout” is a feature of the new Google+ social app that lets up to ten people video chat back and forth. We thought it would be a good replacement for Skype, which has been getting worse and worse with each new version. For a beta product, Hangout worked fairly well.
As you can see, Michael is missing from this podcast. He was on a well deserved vacation. But, in his place… BARTY!!! He was able to make a rare Sunday appearance and we’re glad to have him back.
That brings us to another topic. We are moving the show’s live stream to Wednesday nights at 7:00 pm EDT. This seems to be a better time for all the guys.

It’s an annual event up in Yooper Country that Michael and his family go to every year. But… don’t worry. We still get enough geeky tech-talk in. Enjoy.
