GNC-2010-04-20 #568 Murphy’s Law Strikes

Posted by geeknews at 1:59 AM on April 20, 2010

My Faithful audio recording machine refused to record tonight, but we had the backup recording machine and everything went as planned. Congrats to Jeff that won the Ring Central contest and will get a years free worth of service. On Friday’s show we will give away the Roku to a lucky listener plus we will pick the iPhone application developer winner as well. Great show tonight with lots of great content.
