    HAHA yeah :) Some Mac Geeks are youngin’s

    I’m not a gamer, but I found the 2cents piece about videogames interesting about the OpenGL, DirectX thing.

    Hey One Comment – This is an overall, general comment.

    I have been listening to the mac cast for a while – I guess you changed your feed and possibly more – But I have not been able to download a recent edition of the podccast for the last couple of weeks – There is always an interruption in the download. I use the Ipodder lemon – It seems to work for most everything else – But when it comes to getting the mac cast – I miss out. Is anyone else haveing problems? Any suggestions? Miss getting the show on my ipod!

    I’ve noticed that the Maccast is has taken a lot longer to download over the last few shows – particularly the latest one (i.e. several minutes).

    I have not changed anything recently. So I am unaware of any issues.

    I also use Ipodder lemon and have not noticed any problems at all. All my downloads have been, and are, working fine. I don’t know what that means for those who have been reporting problems…

    Same here. Have not been able to load past two podcasts with iPodder Lemon…gives this error:

    Can’t grab timeout

    All other feeds work fine. My Firefox browser works fine, but attempted direct download also gives me a timeout error.

    Disregard previous post. I power cycled my cable modem + router and all is good again. Two maccasts now downloading. }:o)

    I use iPodder too and have no problems. I’m not sure what Gates is talking about in regards to the iPod, since he is allowing iPod and PSP connectivity with the new Xbox 360.
