Greetings friends! I, the Commodore have a few items to bring to your attention that you may find useful or potentially even interesting. Lacking a better way to get you all this info, I thought I’d just put it in a post for all to see! Here goes.
First, I’m working on a way to better post mp3 versions of all of our shows so that those of you with long commutes or inexplicable appetites for the sound of our voices can listen to our shows in audio-only format. Fact of the matter is I was just blind posting MP3s before which was kind of a sloppy and unprofessional process – let alone a kind of unsecured one. Please don’t think I’ve forgotten those of you that have requested this, we’re investigating and hope to have something soon. For that matter, we think it’s about time we made a proper podcast and I think that idea dovetails nicely.
Second, I think I have solved the problem of finding our new home for the Echo Screen Live chat. I have secured services in the channel #Echo-Screen-Live on the Geekshed IRC network which I believe will service us well as our new host for ESL chat moving forward. If you want to register your nick on their servers (irc.geekshed.net) so we’ll recognize you (and nobody will steal your nick) go for it! And by all means, feel free to use the chat while the show is not going on. I’m exploring the option of adding this chat to our site as a permanent fixture. I look forward to seeing all of you there during the Game of Thrones show!
Thirdly, I’ve heard from many of you that you (for some odd reason) enjoy some of the long ramblings of Wringers and ESL’s of the past. I really like our new formats, but I understand your feelings here and I’m going to do something for you guys. Presently, I’m working on a very simple show that I can do whenever the mood strikes me to reflect, contemplate or rant about something (games or otherwise). Basically this will be comprised of me, a camera, and a deluge of musings on a particular subject. No fancy pictures, no primo editing, just genuine, mostly off the cuff thoughts, and absolutely no apologies for time. 🙂 My hope is that this will help to partially satisfy those of you that prefer a long format show. I live to serve.
That’s all for now. Thank you all for being a part of the Clan of the Gray Wolf.
