I have no patience for UPS. It's gotten to the point where, if a company uses them for shipping I won't order from them. I'll actually call a company if their website doesn't say what carrier does the shipping and ask, and if it's UPS I won't place my order. I have never had a good experience with them. Fedex and regular mail have both always been fine for me. UPS, nothing but screw-ups.

I wish I had dogs to wake up to. Someday when I'm not moving every year or so, and I have a yard... I have a question about how cartoons get made actually. I'm just wondering, because sometimes the cartoon people's mouths just sort of open and close with no relation to the words, but often they move in such a way as to form the words, so I wonder what comes first, the picture or the dialogue, and in either case, how do you make the voice line up with the picture mouths? I've always wondered this.

During the last federal election here in Canada, I was on the CBC website, looking at the returns. They stream their radio broadcasts online and I wanted to listen, but they only stream in wma and I don't have anything that can deal with that format, so I was being very cranky about their lack of open-format content. It took me ten or more minutes of being cranky about it until I realized that I have an actual *radio* that I could use to listen to their *radio* broadcast.

Awesome interview. This is actually the first RFB I've listened to, because after MotFcast ended it was *so hard* to subscribe to a new RSS feed. Well, not really, actually I'm just very, very lazy. But it turns out that I heart RFB as much as I hearted MotFcast, even though there is no Star Trek. The only conclusion to be drawn from this is that you, Wil Wheaton, are awesome. Which rhymes with possum. But not foursome. Unless you're Australian.

Since my computer is currently 100% M$ free and I want to keep it that way (more just so I can say that it's true than anything else), I've been watching thing guild here lately.

Yes please. Bring w00tstock to Toronto (or Ottawa, or Montreal, I'll travel) and I will <3 you forever. There will be much *squeeee*ing.

Also chiming in to say the 'um's are neither annoying nor excessive. The podcast sounds like you just sat down to tell me a story extemporaneously, which is the feel I figured you were going for, and the 'um's fit well.
