coupla gripes about the forums and podcast...

1. I really don't mind the talking over one another on the podcast. It's the meta talk about air conditioning, water status, potential new website domains and theoretical band names/album names that kills me.

I do love the chatter and I actually like it that Paul is acting as a sounding board - his live reaction to news often captures the moment exactly (his "facebook is like chairs" reaction was priceless).

But guys, get the air conditioning, water, soda, alchohol stuff ready prior to starting the recording. I realize the lights are probably scorching you, but I listen to the podcast in my car and this stuff drives me nuts...

2. The forums suck. It took me 6 months just to sign on to one of my favorite sites, but your forums are more of a facebook reply station than actual forums.

I strongly recommend moving to a proper forum platform. Go to AVSFORUM - this is how a proper forum looks and reacts - simple table based replies, linear and chronological. Posts do not resemble blog posts, replies do not look like article reply threads. I know you guys are blog dwellers, but us forum-addicts are having a tough time with this design...
