Tomorrow night, I have to hop on a plane and head to a country with very minimal internet access. I know. It’s tough. There I’ll have to look at amazing scenery, prance around a beach in a bikini, eat endless amounts of free food and drink as much free booze as a I can handle. It’s a tough, tough life.
So I’ll be internetless for a week, which means no email, no answering comments and no Twitter. Try not to miss me too much.
But! I got a number of internet thingies done before I leave, so if you need your Bossy Pally fix (my ego knows no bounderies ;D), be sure to check my Holy Pally 101 post at TopRosters (which, in the end, took the appearance more characteristic of a guide rather than a real 101). Leave as much love or criticism as you wish, but be patient since I won’t get around to answering until next week.
And if you’d rather hear my suave (and by suave I mean squeaky and offkey) voice, the first real episode of the Double O podcast is ready for your listening pleasure. We had a lot of fun recording it. We use an article from Kotaku as a starting point to talk about our experiences as being women and being gamers. Men are welcome too, of course.
The editing process for that one ended up being a nightmare. My editing software kept crashing, and when I finally managed to reach the end of the podcast (after no less than 6 hours), it wouldn’t let me export the file to a more…useful…format. As I was tittering on the verge of a nervous breakdown, Fimlys came to my rescue by suggesting I play the file on my computer and use Audacity to record it.
It was one of the moments where the light shines on you and you hear naked baby angels singing.
“Audacity record sounds from computer” was what I typed in Google. Had to jump through a few hoops (Windows Vista apparently does not approve of recording sounds from your computer), but in the end, I finally had a podcast.
Last week we got some feedback about awkward silences, so I was very aggressive with cutting them out. I….also….tend to….talk with…a lot…of….pauses. So I cut in there in hopes to make myself sound less verbally challenges. The end result isn’t perfect as some pauses probably should have been left in, but, hey! there are NO MORE awkward silences!
