  1. I enjoyed your comments on the “new era of civility.” I think it’ll be interesting to see how much effect we can have from the bottom up. Your challenge to “do better” is one we should remember – I try to be fair, if angry, on my ‘cast, but it’s a challenge, especially since I’m recording these to empty air. Any offense will have to come later, via email, and so far – no complaints. No listeners, either, for all I’m aware…. *grin*

  2. A very interesting podcast, Dave.
    First, thanks for providing us details about the BT, very interesting indeed. I personally wouldn’t have thought a typical ipodder-download could provide that much upload. Good for you.
    Regarding your stuff about rambling – hey, that’s you. The EGC wouldn’t be what it is without you rambling most of the time, having this special kind of amused anger I think most of us are enjoying.

  3. You mentioned not seeing the spike in initial traffic since the switch. I don’t know about everyone else, but when you made the switch, I got the test file, but haven’t gotten anything since the 17th through Ipodder. I’ve been downloading the episodes manually. I deleted and reentered the rss url, still nothing. Didn’t want to switch to the direct feed in hopes tha the BT will kick in, but so far it has not.

  5. Brad, can you do me a favor? Let me know what version you are using. If it is less than 1.1.4, would you mind upgrading and letting me know if that does anything for you? This is a little distressing.

  6. Sure thing. I’m not at home right now. I wanna say I’m using 1.1.4, I updated a couple weeks ago. But I’ll double check when I get home tonight and let you know for sure. I’ll probably get home too late tonight, but I’ll be happy to do some testing with you tomorrow if necessary.

  7. I am using 1.1.4. And it hasn’t grabbed anything since the 17th. It’s not grabbing engadgets feed either for some reason.

  8. My Anecdotal BT story is as follows:

    I run Doppler on WinXP, and generally see your shows download overnight. Doppler launches BT as a separate process which I generally don’t end up closing until I leave for work in the morning. When I close the BT download window, I have always uploaded at least 300MB – which makes me feel good about myself.

    Oh, as always – good show.

  9. John at Dogmatic had a good post about Henry Rollins’ new film show on IFC. He also points to an interesting interview. Of particular interest is this:
    DRE: What people do you want on the show?
    ROLLINS: Werner Herzog, David Lynch, Martin Scorsese,…

  10. Great podcast as usual. Interesting stats…I’m still toying with slapping up a podcast myself (I mainly have to get off my ass and get a mike that doesn’t make me sound like total crap), and the BT experiment provides valuable info. (Not that I’ll have to worry about it anytime soon *grin*, but still good to know.) And I dig what you’re saying about the new era of civility…I’m going to have to go track down the other posts you were referring to as well.

    Take care, dude!
