    I love the show, but I do have a question about the RSS feed… it seems that I don’t get enclosures in my feed ?? Any ideas on what the problem might be ??

  2. Zeno says:

    same problem here with netnewswire: got the enclosure, but not the mp3 audio…
    …anyway…GREAT SHOW!

  3. DucSloerie says:

    Yep, I use Netnewswire too…

    Great show. I have been listening since the first and wanted to take a second to tell you how much I like it. I thought giving your car the Blade Runner treatment was great.

    You may want to follow up in the next show on and let everyone know just how iffy it is. You made it sound like a snap and I’ve been trying to get it to work for a few days now, to no avail.

  7. PacoBell says:

    Eek! Phillip, couldn’t you have normalized the audio of the Skype payphone with the rest of the podcast? I was listening to the show on my PocketPC via headphones and it nearly blew out my eardrums when that excerpt started playing *>.

  8. Douglas says:

    very good

  9. Thomas Holub says:

    I love the audio – very informative and helpful!
