New Geek Toy and Upcoming SQL Down Under Podcasts

Hi Folks,

I was so pleased today to finally get my new geek "toy" installed. I bought a Rode Podcaster mike a while back but didn't get a chance to install it till today. I love the balanced arm that lets me get it positioned so well while still able to type. And then I can just push it out of the way. It's a broadcast quality mike and is in a shock mount. I've already noticed a major difference in the sound quality, including vastly reduced background noise. I've got a pop-filter for it which I might end up using too.

 

I had a small problem getting it working with Vista but was super-impressed that I just called their phone number, within one transfer I got to a human who immediately helped me. I have to mention it because that's so far removed from the typical service experience I have with most things nowadays.

So look out for increased sound quality on upcoming SQL Down Under podcasts. I'd taken a break from producing any for a while as I've been travelling extensively but now I'm back and they'll start to flow.
