    Wow, that was a very informative tutorial. I never even would've thought that someone would make one for this topic. Well done! :D

    I'm curious how the ForceCast guys do their podcasting.

    I'll see about Grimby or I talking to them to see if they'd be interested in discussing it here a bit.
