Illegal Argument


Due to an unfortunate recording problem (someone forgot to plug in the microphone) this weeks podcast got recorded on the internal microphone of the MacBook. As the recording suffered too many sound issues (distance, fan noises, and the on the rare case that Mark actually speaks - frog like sounds) we've decided not to post this episode.

Episode #7 will now come next week - and we'll make sure to plug things in :-)
