Windows podcast

Hey guys.

I've been toying with the idea of doing some kind of tech podcast lately.
The idea of one geared around Windows XP games and hardware seems quite a
nice focus area, certainly shouldn't run out of stuff to talk about.

I'd be looking at a fortnightly format, perhaps 40 minutes long with
segments on troubleshooting, new games, general cool stuff going on with
Windows, and a bit of hardware / tech news talk. Target audience would be
novice users (lets get them into podcasts) rather then the more traditional
PC-hardware and should have some focus on education, aka the cool stuff you
can do with Windows sorta stuff. It would be tied into my Windows site, and
possibly my blog have to see at what people actually do listen to it.

Ideally I'd have a co-host too, 40 minutes of me talking to myself isn't
fun - trust me lol, volunteers very welcome, then with potential guest
speakers if we could find any. Any other input etc also very welcome.

</idea plug>

Not exactly. I don't think I can do a mile yet. I believe it was more like
a 1,600. 8-)

Come on people. Someone's gotta have a couple of hours to spare every 2
weeks.

In response to your post, not Paul's. LOL! If I can't even meet him within
Forza on Xbox Live! how in the world would I do a podcast with him? 8-)
