If you aren't tuning into TWiT Live on Thursdays at 6pm ET to watch me and Leo Laporte talk about PC hardware, you are missing out. I have uploaded our latest episode to my Viddler account for easy viewing here on the site.
Note: as you get into the episode there is a slight video/audio sync issue that pops up. Just a heads up!
Last year (or so...) I had been publishing a series of interviews. Questions are all the same, for Moderators, Members, etc. Well, I got too darn busy and fell off...but the interviews are back by popular demand. We'll start with some I had backlogged. Then we will move on to the newest ones.

In Q1 of 2007 Auzentech announced the upcoming availability of the eagerly anticipated X-Meridian. This was a top end sound card with tremendous features, unique engineering, and sound quality that was promised to be the best in the world. A few months later Auzentech released the card to a host of excellent reviews. While the card was not exactly perfect (the analog outputs were a wee bit hot and caused distortion if levels were not adjusted) it was a step up from nearly everything else in the market, including the mighty X-Fi.

I had a couple of people remind me that it had been just about year since my last "blog" post. Well, rather than let it lapse completely, I'll make this post.
You can STILL hear from me though by keeping up to date on our bi-monthly podcast or by following me on Twitter. Both will give you a mix of personal and professional (website) information so you can keep up with what is going on behind the scenes.

For those of you that are desperately worried (and I am sure there are just TONS of you), the podcast for this week was delayed thanks to AMD. Really, they made me leave my warm cozy home to head for Canada (eh?) for a day and it just happens to have wrecked our podcast schedule. Not to mention Valentine's Day - and I really wanted to spend it with Jeremy and Josh.
I have the extreme pleasure in posting an interview with a member who
is a first class guy as well as a retired (no, no...not retarded ) Mod,
and one of the founding fellows here: Tigsman.
I can only say this, Ron was instrumental in helping me feel welcome
here and to try my hand at doing more than lurking around. This place
truly wouldn't have been nor could have continued to be what it is
without him. OK, OK, enough outta me, let him tell his story.
AMD Q4 2007 Analysis, Page One
We take apart AMD's Q4 financial results and see what the company has in store for 2008. Not only do we look at how AMD almost broke even this quarter but also how their future product plans will affect the company.

Just a quick note about something that just rubs me the wrong way, I'll setup a scenario. You are a Vista user, you are listening to some MP3s in Windows Media Player. You are having a great time. Time to leave, so just close WMP and off you go...but wait, why is the music still playing?
Well, I've been off my feed for a few months and I have a backlog of
interviews to get out. It hasn't helped that my new year started with a
schedule change (after 25 years of the same schedule!) has got me doing
72 hours a week till tomorrow. Enough excuses, here we go!
