Chris G. Williams Beware: I mix tech and personal interests here.
just wait 'til you hear my PODCAST!! haha I kill me...

That's right kiddies... it's coming soon. The Blogus Maximus PodCast!! (You have my permission to kick me if I end up actually calling it that.)

I've spent the last 3 hours playing with Audacity (which I'm really starting to like, btw) and messing with some spoken tracks and background music tracks. The best thing about Audacity, aside from being free, is that it's incredibly easy to use. I've played with a handful of different audio tools over the last few days and this is the only one that didn't kill me with too many options and features right up front. (That doesn't mean it's not flexible or powerful, because it is, but it doesn't confuse you by putting stuff you may never need right on the main screen)

I hope to have at least one PodCast posted before Tech*Ed 2005, and I plan to interview (annoy?) a few folks while I'm there. Should be fun!

I also found this really cool digital recorder at Radio Shack (of all places). It's $99 and records about 27 hours, and the best part is you don't need to mess with any cables or anything to dump it to your PC/Laptop. It pulls apart into 2 seperate pieces, and the main piece has a USB connector on it so you can just plug it right in, very similar to the Creative MuVo. Yes, it does come with a cable for those of you who don't have easy access to your USB ports. The only (potential) drawback is that it records in WMA format, which Audacity doesn't appear to support, so I'll need to convert the recordings to .wav, .ogg or .mp3 if I want to use them.

It's the best thing I've seen so far, an definitely the easiest to pick up.
