The cliff is higher than you think.

But the landing is wondrous.

Say Hello to My Liddo Friend....


The "Transcript" links take you to the transcript page (if any) which hosts all auto-generated written transcripts of the podcasts. Up through episode 8 were done by Adobe's absurd and ludicrous idea of a speech to text generator. It's another pathetic embarrassment to Adobe. Transcripts after that were made by a real transcriber. In so many ways, for so many "products", Adobe can just go suck an egg -- and they just more than doubled their subscription. It is truly time to just say goodbye to Adobe.


After bashing YouTube mercilessly for years and years and YEARS, the popularity of our vids has outstripped the capabilities of our servers, and we were forced to begin moving items to YouTube. That really pisses us off. But it is what it is. All links on this page now lead to the same videos or podcasts, but they stream from YouTube instead of from our servers (for the time being). We virtually guarantee we will have trouble with YouTube of one kind or another, because, after all, just about everyone does. If (when) that "trouble" outweighs the usefulness of YouTube, we'll find yet another solution.
