Podcast Information
While the name may be misleading, there is a discussion of the number 269, an explanation of marmots, and a string of good and bad jokes throughout this podcast. The best part? We've normalized our sound output for the first time, and the wide volume differences between speakers has been smoothed out. Beware this means this may be louder than previous podcasts. Enjoy!

The Friday podcast is an off-topic discussion. These are unscripted discussions with a general subject, and do not have a transcript or pre-recorded outline available.

When available, Donors (http://www.tankspot.com/forums/general-discussion/36281-tankspot-donation-information.html) will see both the outlines and podcasts in advance of their post date.

Did you find this subject utterly boring? Please, suggest topics and discussions, and ask questions for us to include in our upcoming podcasts. :)

The volume is kinda "too high" for me, it sounds "overloud".

Not sure how to say that.

Can you adjust the volume down on your end? I just use a standard preset, might be a little higher than normal since we don't have the spikes we normally do so the volume preset pushes everything a bit higher.

I think the overlying moral to this podcast is that we are amazing people.

It didn't make sense to me that the 269th day would be 25th on a non-leap year and then on a leap year would be a day *later*...but date math is hard...anyway here's what wikipedia had to say:

269 (number - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/269_(number))

not that it's necessarily right...but I don't think the numbers aren't out to get you. :)

Shouldn't it be in your case Lore, "You can't quit, we fire you"?

Oh and if it makes you feel better... 341 haunted me for many years in much the same way... eventually the coincidences end I assure you.

@Ciderhelm

Haven't listen to your latest podcast yet, but have notice an off topic fascination with marmots. I live at the base of Mt. Washington on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada, where we have a strugling colony of marmots. The Vancouver Island Marmot is actually Canada's most endangered species.

Mt. Washington also hosts a top notch skiing, every year the ski facility closes down regardless of skiing conditions due to Marmot breeding season. I believe at last report there were only 30 some animals in the wild. I know that 4 or 6 animals where released from the breeding facility last year or the year before. Unfortunately a cougar managed to get them, but the breeding program has become somewhat successful and the researchers are hopeful to release some more.

The local elementary school where my kids attend provide some educational awareness of these marmots and thetyalso get the children involved in some fund raising.

Some links for those that are interested.

Honestly, I was looking at this page not too long ago. We're referring to them in a more joking way because I really do find them funny creatures, but why not put a little goodwill into it? Will link this from the main post. :)

Dwarf Fortress is wonderful. But he really needs to spend some serious time on the UI one of these days. Yes, it lets you do everything you need to do, and yes, the roguelike display is part of the charm. But, at the same time, the menus really need some serious re-organization to make it easier to learn—and at least providing asprite-based isometric display as an alternative would be a good idea since the game went 3D... visualizing what's going on became a whole lot trickier with that change.

You guys were mentioning scaling back a little bit? I can understand running 2-3 podcasts a week cuts into other obligations you may have. Maybe a suggestion to do that is to run Podcasts on Mondays/Fridays only. Have every Monday a tanking/WoW related podcast, and alternate the Friday podcast with Guild relations/Off topic discussion. I think that would work fine.

As for subject matter, maybe talk a little bit on what direction you'd like to see different classes go for the future and ideas you have for them. I think getting a serious PvPer also opens up tons and tons of discussion.

Necro update: Arcand did some math and posted this on Maintankadin --


A cycle of HotR-HS-SoR-Judge-HotR-Cons costs 2418 mana and takes nine seconds. That's 269 mana per second, sustainable without any other mana regen if we're taking 2690 DPS.

269 strikes again!
