UPDATE: Podcast is live on Libsyn.

Back in the day I hosted a technology commentary website here on wordpress called Technobabbleonline. One of the most popular bits to the website was the podcast that I produced along with my sister and brother.

In those days the recording was done in a relatively primitive way. Sure Audacity was still used for recording and editing but the hardware used to record was not so impressive. We often used a Playstation 2 USB headset. In the later recordings a more impressive forty dollar microphone was used but it still didn’t get the best audio quality.

This time around while the recording software remains the same the audio will be captured with a Blue Yeti. This should up the quality quite a bit.

We’re using a better hosting service so the audio track won’t have to be compressed so much. I plan to post the first podcast tomorrow sometime barring any issues with editing. We will be recording today.

Of course now 5 gold is worth nothing… Continue reading “My Return (Yet Again) to World of Warcraft”

Recently I was given this MacBook Pro (of which I am writing this on at this very moment) and I have been using it as my daily driver for nearly 4 months now. How do I fare? Let’s find out.

Personal Rig Introduction and Some Brief Personal PC History

computerhistory.jpgAs part of this website I want to keep my personal rig sort of up to date for you all to know what I am running at any point in time. You may know if you were curious enough to look throughout the blog here that the blog’s name (redbluegreen.ca) is sort of a play on the colours of the main pc chip makers and the three main game consoles. I am firmly on the red team to what is most likely to some of your dismay. Continue reading “Personal Rig Introduction and Some Brief Personal PC History”
