    Well, I’m getting the right speeds and the right file size(And I wasn’t getting the right size earlier), but at about 50% completion, the speed drops to 0 and stops. Restarted like 5 times now…Will try a few more times I guess. Anyone else having this problem?

  • JoshuaH 8 years ago

    Well iPod version downloaded fine. I had problems with the Xvid last month to, I guess I will just stick to the iPod version for now on :).

    You all did an outstanding job, congratulations! Where was Alli? Mad props for all that you do!



  • Hey guys,

    Excellent job as always! I did notice something while watching that caught my ear. There was a very faint buzz in the audio during most of the video. I’ve experienced this exact noise while doing audio production work. Through a TON of trial and error, I found that it was the power supply for a laptop. I fixed it by getting rid of the ground pin with a two prong adapter. I hope this helps you guys out! Keep up all the good work!

    Yes we need a torrent PLEASE!

    speeds are varying a lot as well
    20k to 400k but it sits at around 80k

    You will just have to accept that this show is getting more popular so you need to up the bandwidth lol

  • SoCalDaveBandito 8 years ago

    Dude, if you guys are gonna mention sites then either put the URL’s on the bottom of the screen or provide show notes.

    Drives me crazy when playing back and trying to figure out what was said.

    Thanks. Keep rocking on.

    be selective

  • Lots of specialists argue that personal loans aid a lot of people to live the way they want, just because they can feel free to buy necessary things. Moreover, various banks give commercial loan for young and old people.
