GNC-2010-01-25 #546 Live from Jacksonville

Posted by geeknews at 8:28 PM on January 25, 2010

My time here in Florida is rapidly coming to a close and I will be heading back to Honolulu. I am suffering bandwidth withdrawals as the hotel connectivity is simply horrid. Someday Hilton will figure out how to keep their customers happy. But the Homewood Suites here in Jacksonville need to work on their bandwidth. Should be an exciting day on Wednesday we will see if all the fuss is worth it.

GNC-2009-12-22 #538 Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays

Posted by geeknews at 1:19 AM on December 22, 2009

First of all Merry Christmas to all that celebrate Christmas and Happy Hauneka, may you all have a wonderful time with family. On this episode You will here me freak out at about the 50 minute mark? At that point the audio recording computer tells me I am at an 1hr 31 Minutes instead of 50 minutes which I don’t figure out for a few minutes? Turns out my trusty audio recorder lost its mind tonight? May have to rethink firewire.. Anyway I pulled the lower quality audio recording from the tricaster as a backup as the original recording was TRASHED. Great show regardless, just one of those things that happen, at least I did not have to record the entire show over.

GNC-2009-08-14 #502 Batting a 1000 Tonight!

Posted by geeknews at 1:55 AM on August 14, 2009

Tonight show is complete but a small confession the first 12 minutes where recorded twice, first time I have done that in years. As soon as I started the show firefox crashed, the tricaster ran out of hd space, and a host of other things made it a complete circus. Don’t worry I save both the audio and video for a best of clips. Your host is 95% healthy again and I am announce a pretty cool new contest where you can win a Zune HD you will have to be creative to win though and will have to get on this pretty quick more in the show.

You supporting the Show Sponsors keep the lights on here, Thank You for your Support!
