Well so am I. Due to an unfortunate chain of events episode 149 won’t be out this week. Brad was away at a concert so we decided to do the show on Friday. We were able to get about half way through but then the skype connection refused to work for more than 5 minutes at a time. This attempt was with Pfkninenines, sorry that this one didn’t work out… 🙁
Next Mike and I tried on Saturday however I was foolish enough to record with Audacity. Audacity decided to garble the recording and add a huge amount of static to it. This static was in now way listenable. So this attempt failed.
Finally we could try and do it today but everyone I know is busy. It’s that time of the year, school finals. So with that said no show this week, it’s not that bad really… this is only the 4th time we have not been able to get a show out for various reasons.
To top it all off, this weeks show will be live on Thursday at 9PM Gmt in the RSBandB teamspeak server. Expect more info to be posted later this week.
As some of you guys may know we are doing a live RSBANDBUpdate! this Saturday (Dec 23). This show will go hand in hand with the RSBANDB Christmas drop party. You can take a look at the topic here on the forums.
Here is the guide on joining the show to either listen live or talk.
Hope to see you there!
Regarding this forum topic.
A suggestion was brought to me by someone that it may be a good idea to bring in an AAC version of the podcast. AAC is the default codec of iTunes. AAC can compress to better sound quality at a lower file size. Eg. You could have a 128Kbps AAC file at the same size as the 64Kbps MP3 file.
That is option 1.
Option 2 is to add in the older RSBANDBUpdate! episodes (prior to 45) to the libsyn hosting service. Those episodes would not show up in iTunes as it would require a massive amount of re-adding information into the show database. They’d be available for direct download from the Update site.
There’s option 2.

I have put up a listener survey button to the left (it has actually been there for quite some time).Â I havn’t been getting many responses on it.Â So if you havn’t we’d apreciate it if you could fill it out.Â It’s completely anonymous and the survey will be used to gauge what needs to be done.Â It may also help for website advertising later on.
You can find it here.
