Podcast TEST 

As you know I am exploring the idea of setting up a podcast, so I have been playing about with methods and ideas.

To test to see if feedburner will handle it for me I have created a small mp3 of the research I did on Yamashita San.

So... lets see if this works.... ... ashita.mp3

[UPDATE - Friday 13th October]
Seems to work nicely from the feedburner feed at least. Anyone else tried it.

Podcast progress 

Hi all,
So... a podcast is looking more and more likely by the second. I am thinking about setting a Judo one up and have been playing with software. I also spoke to the guys from tonight about what they are doing over there, and that really helped encourage me.

Clever readers.

Forward me all your suggestions, tips, etc.
Specifically, tools for creating the podcast (I'm Mac primarily now, though I have WIndows on Bootcamp)
Also hosting, syndication, licensing, etc?

Help me out folks! :-)

Great website. 

Okay, been looking at websites and designs, features etc a lot lately. Whats cool, whats not. What works what does not. - Terrific layout.
MS - ick

This morning, was (sadly) browsing around the web about lil Chris from the channel4 TV show "Rock School" and came across his official website.

Take a look at and take a look at a successful website with some great features.

Layout/colours... yuck to my aged eyes, but for the age group and for a "rocker" brilliant.
Blog of course and all the usual stuff.

But what makes it stand out to me.

1. His single
Okay the catalyst of browsing the web for him was hearing his song on the TV and going "Hey isn't that the wee fellah from that show with Gene Simmons"
So what happens when you hit his website, out blares the song in question, I knew I was in the right place. And that I needed to turn the speakers down! :-)

2. Him on the site - literally.
The animations are great, really clear, really really good. Really... " right" for the site. be sure to refresh the front page a couple of times to see all the animations.

3. Cursor
I almost missed this one completely! Make sure you float the mouse over the menu items at the top. ROCK ON!!!!

Excellent, not suitable for a corporate site obviously, but to me the whole site felt perfect;y aimed at the target audience, and the features were great, not too annoying, but enough to make you go "whoah thats cool"

Take a quick look over at the site and see if you agree.

Kudos (who did the site!

As research (or catlyst even) I have been listening to from the states.

So... what do people think of a podcast?
