    It is now official... I hate computers.

    Long story short: When we recorded 2 weeks ago, our guest Nathan Butler was not picked up by the audio capture program, leaving holes in the audio whenever Nathan was speaking. Nathan, being the trooper he is, went back and rerecorded all his stuff from the show while listening to our half of the conversation.

    Hurdle passed... or so it seemed.

    My multitrack editor, after plugging in all of Nathan's files (and believe me, there was a LOT), was refusing to save the file. So, to try to get around it, i played the file while using an audio capture on another program.

    Again, it would not pick up the output from the program. Scrambling, i discovered my sound card did not have the right drivers installed. I popped in my SB Audigy CD, reinstalled, and suddenly discovered that the CD had drivers for ME, not XP. My computer went bezerk, suddenly restarted, and i lost the editing job i had done on the show.

    It took me 3 hours to get the computer back the way it was with the correct files. At one point I thought i was going to have to format my HD (which would have driven me to something drastic, i'm sure), but was saved by an unknown intervention by the computer gods.

    Now that my computer is back to the way it is, i would go back and re-edit the show, but it's so out of date there's no point. Our topics were pre-Celebration and after the dust has cleared I really can't find a good way of releasing this and have it be in context to anything.

    In response, i'm going to make it up to everyone that's been bugging me to get a new show out. We've arranged to record a special show of DLR from the Episode II line the night of Tuesday, May 15th. We'll be talking to Star Wars fans and asking their opinion of things, we'll meet some friends of DLR that you'll be seeing in The Formula, I *promise* to talk about Broken Alliegance, and i'm going to try to figure out a way that people can talk to us while we're on the show. Who knows? Also, JUSTIN WILL BE ON THE SHOW. He'll be in line with me, so there you have it. Anyways, I apologize to everyone on behalf of myself (and my computer) and i'll do my best to get something out before The Formula premieres June 1st. Cheers!

    No, we'd prefer to keep you around and watch you eat your words for a while :p

    Sorry to hear about DLR though :( But the good news is we've got the formula coming really soon now :D

    <buries face in hands>

    TUESDAY, MAY 14th. <screams>

    As for DL:pG, i should have that one up pretty shortly, i was so worried about DLR that DL:pG got put on the backburner.

    But that's okay, since EagleIFilms will listen and just say there was nothing that interested him on the topic list. :)

    <ignores previous couple posts>

    Alright, here's the deal.

    I will be in line around 4PM CST. Justin and Abe will be joining me in the late evening and night.

    Here's where you come in...

    we're doing a special Ask the Panel this week. While in line i'll be taking phone calls for Ask the Panel questions or anything else you might be interested in hearing or talking about. We are putting a ban on questions about David Nutely's pets. (Don't worry, Dave, it's only temporary.) I don't think i'm going to have a way to put anyone on the air, but feel free to call and get your 2 cents in.

    The ASK THE PANEL LINE: 319-981-4145

    If you are outside the Cedar Rapids area, please dial carefully, long distance charges *will* apply. If you don't get me, leave a message with your question.

    Feel free to ask about Episode II, things we should ask other people in line, what we should do to entertain everyone, who knows. I'll be in line. Bored. CALL. :)

    -Chris

    Chris, if you just got a phone call that hung up, I'm really sorry.

    I'm using a thing on the net that gives me free long distance, but I just relaised I have no mike.

    So, when I find a mike, I'll call you and actually speak to you.

    EDIT: w00t!! I actually talked to Chris via Internet phone, while e was in teh car, headed for the theater. I can't wait for the show, as they will be talking to people IN LINE, and they'll be recording up until they walk into the theater.

    So, anyway, it was great talking to Chris, and, well, yeah.
