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.

I know, it’s been over a month since the last podcast. Jash, Michael and I have been busy. So we decided to make it up to you with this long…. long podcast featuring the Brockway Mountain Midnight Pizza Party. 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.
