    Hey Adam, a little bit ironic that after a long wait for the Maccast, about the same time you record the show, iPhone ads are running during “60 Minutes” (east coast at least). Great show!

    For the guy asking about remote software to support relatives. I can highly recommend Co-Pilot

    This software is specifically designed to support this need, and is pay for use, so perfect for only occasional use. You can buy a day pass for only $5 and the software is small, removes itself after use, uses 128-bit encryption, either party can cover the cost. You don’t need to worry about machine addresses or anything like that, and it will pass through standard HTTP ports. There are both a Mac and PC client and they can talk to each other.

    Hope this helps

    For addressing changing IPs from your ISP, there is a free service from DynDNS that uses clients to redirect your machines IP address to a static one. The clients periodically check for changes and update the redirect as necessary.

    hey adam,
    show 188 dies at the 14 minute, 12 second mark.
    the track stops and flicks back to the beginning.

    even if i select a later part of the show, and hit play; nothing happens.

    Hiyo Adam,

    Really liked this episode of the podcast, especially, the song you put up! Really the type of stuff I can get into.

    Keep up the awesome work!

    Let’s start a petition to get The Gathering out of retirement! That was an awesome song.

    Better yet, how about starting MacCast Records and getting that into iTunes.

    Regarding AAC-support in various devices… AAC is actually widely supported. Zune supports it and I believe SanDisk Sansa supports it as well. so that cover #1, #2 and #3 of the mp3 player-market right there. AAC is also the format of choice for the cell-phone manufacturers, so just about all of the music-playing cell-phones support AAC.

    Hey Adam, great comic relief with the micro suggestions and what an Jobs Easter Egg you left at the end! Have you been doing this for a while?
