    This may have been really stupid to you all, but I really have no idea how recording works via all these different platforms. It’s a new area for me. I do appreciate all the feedback though and I should have a device at some point here in the next week.

  2. I remember Will mentioning that they don’t broadcast them live from his house because of his bandwidth cap. I could be wrong, though.

  3. SHOEMAKER!

    I’ve got this cued up in Instacast and I can’t wait to listen. Seriously. I’m bouncing up and down in my chair right now.

    SHOOOOOEMAAAAAKERRR!

  4. I had a freshman seminar at Penn State’s nuclear reactor. The best part of the whole semester was watching while they shot out a control rod and the whole room filled with that crazy, blue glow.

    Also…[pulling Will aside] it’s Cherenkov, not Cherkenov.

  5. My uncle built (by his own design, a few years back) a super-insulated cabin similar to what you guys were discussing. The building stays around 15C the whole year, winter or summer. He has a fireplace for heating if he needs it, that’s it. This is in northern Saskatchewan, which gets crazy cold in winter. I love going there in summer because it is always really cool inside.

  6. Regarding Google Drive, I think Will saying “I’m really happy with Dropbox; I pay them ten bucks a month” is kinda weird or at least sidesteps the point far too casually. The point being that Google now offers 100GB cloud storage for half the price of the 50GB plan @ Dropbox (and Skydrive is even cheaper). That seems like a big deal to me.
