    Over at starwarsfanworks.com, we are looking to expand our staff to include a person (preferably people) to write reviews of fan audio productions, editorials, regular columns, and really anything else that might fit with the fan audio genre.

    Right now, we have two people who will most likely be doing some writing, but when it comes to reviews, it's a "the more the merrier" environment.

    Ooh, blast, I promised to do this, didn't I? Must remember to get round to it this weekend, then...

    I wouldn't mind giving this a shot, since this is one of my favorite mediums. I'd be interested in reviewing the audios and writing a small column about them.

    And if you can review it and put it in an audio form, we may play it on the Requiem of the Outcast and have you as a guest reviewer.

    Sweet. Yeah, I think it's Steve Mollmann and Michael Sheridan already in on it, but we can use as many as possible, especially on reviewing. If you write something up, send it along.

    I suppose I could try my hand at it.

    What do you guys want reviewed?

    (of course, I'd have to be able to get it to PLAY. I still can't play the audio of the DragonCon panel yet.)

    Y'know, I think that should be easy to figure out. Let's go over that one again.

    You have WinZip and you have Media Player, right?

    Okay, once you download the file, you should have a Zip file. Now, try to open that in WinZip.

    If it won't open, then your problem is downloading, not the file you downloaded. You'll need to get something like GetRight to download it. Some people, for some reason, have trouble downloading the entire file, and their computers cut them off. If that's you, get GetRight (free version) and use that to download it.

    Once you have a working Zip you can open in WinZip, extract (drag and drop to the desktop if desired) the mp3 from inside the Zip. Use RealPlayer (or preferable Media Player, but whatever) to play the mp3. It should work.

    Any and all, though if one reviews there own, there needs to be a disclaimer and something a bit more of an explanatory rather than review-like form.

    Finished up Digital Llama Productions, thanks to some help from Nathan on getting the DLPG episodes. I am beginning work on a series of Second Strike reviews also.

    Uh...go read the reviews. :D

    Yeah! You can find them in the Features area or on the individual DLR/DLPG/DL 2.0 pages.
