The volume is REALLY low on this and the past episode.
lars, sorry you’re having trouble. We haven’t changed anything in the podcast levels for quite some time, so I’m not too sure what’s going on. We can see the actual waveform levels in Audacity, so I’m pretty sure they’re not any quieter now than they were before.
Nice show, guys. I don’t have much feedback, but I just wanted to post something since you didn’t have any feedback so far.
Isaac said that he wanted the music player applet to have fine control over the position in a song. It looks like it does have that but only for music players that have support for seeking.
hahaha geekiest person in the room! Love the cast guys! Keep it up. Loved checking out the ogmented sandbox!
