Our fellow geeks may be curious about some of the technical details. The show is recorded via Skype. Wesley’s PC runs Windows 7 while Dustin’s run’s Sabayon Linux. Both use the Blue Yeti microphone. Face to face interviews are recorded using a Tascam DR-07MKII. Dustin edits the show using Audacity and it is available encoded through both the proprietary MP3 (Lame) and open source Ogg Vorbis codecs.
The banner and “CD Cover” are using a picture Dustin took from the edge of a cliff near “The Monastery” above Petra in Jordan looking off to the west in the late afternoon of 23 June 2007. The text is using the TTF-Ubuntu Medium font and the image was edited using GIMP 2.8.
The tagline, “Not all those who wander are lost”, is borrowed from J.R.R. Tolken.
