Hi Nick,
As I have used none of the programs you've mentioned, I can't agree or 
disagree, but thanks for them, I didn't even know they existed.

Hope

  Hope,
  While Skype rules, it doesn't give me that same room feel like such programs 
as Ventrilo, TeamTalk, and bitwise do.  However, it's latency, or lack there 
of, can't be beet.
  Thanks,

    Hi Mary,
    Yes, that podcast was a blast I must say!  I'm glad you enjoyed that, 
because it was great fun recording it.
    The doors opening and closing thing you mentioned really made me smile.  I 
wondered how that all came across over the recording, and it does sound as if 
Megan's room is an ever revolving door; when one person leaves, another 
literally chimes in.
    I hope you can get Skype working for you, it would be great fun to talk to 
you.  The experience is pretty amazing.  It really feels as though you're 
speaking to someone right in the same room as you are.
    Anyway, I've gone on long enough, I'm abridging the Hope novel for today.
    Oh, wait, that's a bit hypocritical isn't it, since I just said the 
unabridged books are better?  <smile>

    Hope

      Hi list,

      I've really enjoyed the podcasts this week; two of Larry and Jake walking 
in just a couple days is a very special treat! I sit in my favorite rocking 
chair, large mug of hot chocolate in hand, book port or Olympus WS320 on my 
lap, headphones on, just taking it all in and glad to hear it all. We have such 
cold rainy weather this week and with all the other adverse weather conditions 
throughout the country, it's nice to know at least a few places have more 
pleasant surroundings than snow or rain.

      I love the podcast Hope and Megan did. You guys sounded like you were 
having a real good time with it! I kept hearing doors opening and closing, and 
thought for a while that you must have a huge amount of people coming into your 
room and leaving; and then I figured out it must be the computer doing those 
sounds with instant messenger and people leaving and coming online. So, my 
mistake, but it was fun imagining you carrying on a conversation and hearing 
doors open and close all the time. I thought, "Who is spying on you guys 
anyway?" You really must do a podcast on Skype. I got a version from 
http://www.jfwlite.com and there were scripts there also, but I bet it was an 
earlier version; I set up an account last year and have never used it, and I 
don't even have Skype on my PC now. It just seems too disruptive. But that's 
just me, not used to being interrupted.

      Mary
