The Icon Bar: News and features: Podcast IV - coming soon!
 

Podcast IV - coming soon!

Posted by Richard Goodwin on 14:46, 4/10/2005 | , , , , , , ,
 
Yes, it's nearly time for another podcast. And we want YOU to contribute!

So, below are some of the subjects we're hoping to cover, along with how you can get in touch:

  • Select/IYONIX/RISCOS Ltd./Castle - your views on the matter. Want to bash some heads together? Happy with how things are panning out? Paid for Select and happy/unhappy? Let us know. Of course if you happen to work for any of the above, we'd love to hear from you too!
  • What do YOU do for RISC OS? We had an email from Herbert zur Nedden of the German Archimedes Group asking just this. Are you a programmer, or otherwise contribute to RISC OS? Want to be but don't know how? Let us know your opinions!
  • Starfighter 3000 - the free update means there's even more love around for this excellent 3D space game. Avid player? Played it on other platforms? You know who to call!
  • Your views on the font site being closed - did you use it much? Always figured it was a rip-off? Drop us a line!
As for how to get in touch, we want to include as many people as possible, so we'll try and make this really easy. We use a lot of Skype as it has voicemail, access to the "real" phone system and software available for Windows, Mac and Linux... but not RISC OS, so we understand if you don't want to take that route. You can call up "houseofmabel" if you use Skype; call 020 7193 3202 from a regular telephone (+44 20 7193 3202 if you're not in the UK); grab a microphone and record your own message, then drop it into our anonymous FTP site (ftp://ftp.iconbar.com/incoming/ - email us to let us know it's there!); or just email us your thoughts: news at iconbar.com or use the contact form!

Don't worry if you fluff your lines, feel silly, or um and err a lot - we do that all the time, and I usually manage to edit something together. So have a quick think (we're recording this weekend!), call us up and tell us your opinions!

Since you've said that you might get a few people phoning up just for the sake of it. Or did he specify having anything useful to say in the bet?

It'll cost me more than 20p - think of the postage sending a cheque, or the Paypal transaction fees :(

The exact wording was...
I bet you twenty pence no [expletive deleted] sends us anything
...so you could just send anything.

But being such wonderful, intelligent people I'm sure you can string a sentence or two together!

Then you'd have to write more script to fill in the otherwise silent podcast ;)

eddyosaysyo could be our resident stalker! Like we're properly famous or something! :D
