Marco wow. Trade ya systems. Mines pretty rad. Core2quad, 9600gt, 4GBs of ram. You know it's rocking.

Seriously. That sounds like a killer system Marco has there!

How 'bout NO! :)

bob_on_the_cob 4 years ago

Ha Ha. On a serious note that is another awesome podcast. You guys crack me up.

Do you guys like that we're trying to keep it light and somewhat fun? Or would you prefer something more serious? (well, as serious as we meatballs can be.)

3vi1 4 years ago

I think you guys have a great balance. I don't like the overly formal formats (boring), and dislike the campy stuff (XPlay) just as much. The level you have is just about right.

I like it light and fun, and it's great to see that you three guys seem to be having a good time doing this! Will you be wearing costumes for the Halloween podcast?

@lifeskills - Which phone did you get?

fat78 4 years ago

making it a serious pod cast would make it boring.

realneil 4 years ago

Do the cast the way it is,... maybe add some Soupy Sales Pies every now and then.

Marco has the system I want when I grow up. I'm just the EIC here. Real playas get the good stuff. I use to be a playa.

fat78 4 years ago

Arnt you already grown up?

Dave_HH 4 years ago

oh God no, I'm just a big kid.

I enjoy watching the podcast, and I like how it seems casual.

@Marco, got the HTC Evo. Turns out I get a 25% discount on my bill for working at Fred Meyer, plus they got the 4g service here.

This thing sure is hard to type on

marco c 4 years ago

Nice! The EVO is the best phone out there at this time--at least IMO. Make sure you check out xda-developers.com for mods! :)

Guys, keep those questions coming!  We love to get your questions comments etc, answered!  It's a great way for us to interact with you all, the best readership on the web!  Smile

It's good that Iyaz has moved to a smaller room for this podcast because the sound quality on his end has improved a lot (vs. the last podcast)!

Super Dave 4 years ago

I Love you guys, and I love your podcasts, so I'll lay it on the line: improving the video quality would make a really big improvement. I'm not sure if you're using the built-in webcams on your laptops, but you might want to consider something more upscale!

We're using Logitech webcams and we definitely want to improve that over Skype.  We're looking into it but any and all suggestions are appreciated!

I have a question or questions!!!

I want to know, How did HH start? Where did Marco and Dave meet? What do you do if any thing in real life, ie job? Or do you just run HH? How did each of you get into computers and at what age? What was the first computer you had that you can remember?

It was a lonly saturday night in a coffe shop when their eyes met and from that moment on they knew they would be togather.

Heh.... Fat, that couldn't be any further from the truth but these definitely are good questions for the next podcast.  We're on it!

 

bob_on_the_cob 4 years ago

You should have a guest from the forums on as a contest or something some time.

marco c 4 years ago

@Fat78 - HAHAHAHA! All of you forum regulars would totally dig how I got started in this business. Looks like we've got some goodness for the next podcast! :)

Good luck!  Study, rest, eat right the day before and day of and don't be nervous.  Be confident.  You'll rock it.

What's funny is that I'm in the same room, but a different angle. The "castle" background is my fireplace in my living room.

Der Meister 4 years ago

^lol

Inspector 4 years ago

:D iyaz, well the different angle made for a different sound recording :p lol.(Better one) Its always good to change things up to freshen up the podcast Smile

No pod cast this week?

Yeah, sorry guys.  We may do up two next week, we're not sure.  Both Marco and I were traveling to a big brand name press event this week (under NDA) so we were a blown out and couldn't get it done.

We'll have one up soon though!  Maybe Monday... we'll see.

If I guess correctly can I get one of those things that you cant disclose? I bet you were at the AMD/ATI even for the launch of the 6000 series of card this next week.... thats my guess

I've seen angrier... I've seen people lift cars and stuff.

I used to have a wireless Microsoft mouse. It had a bad habit of dropping connection at the worst times. I was playing a competition game in Team Fortress. Nothing super serious, I'm not that good, but I was capping the last point in overtime. The mouse dropped out on me and I got killed. I chucked it across the room against the wall. Jen looked at me and says. "Your not taking my mouse" and tosses me the keys to the car.
