  • “The game sweeping the world: Minecraft (Ed barely contains himself!)” – I think thats a understatement, Robin!

  • Are these stats correct!!!

    7000+ downloads in 24hours, thats insane!

  • Prenumbra: no fighting and all the hiding… did you not use the hammer to bash the hounds as you cower on top of boxes? Takes a while to get them down, but doable….Pretty intense experience the first go round!!!

  • Maybe YOU’RE insane! Did you think of that?

  • You guys are doing a fantastic job keep up the good work.

  • Please, Please oh Ubuntu Gods. Do not ever let Ubuntu look even the slightest bit like windoz 7. If I had wanted that trash I would have bought it. I have been a Ubuntu user for about 2 years and never want to be a slave to microsoft again.

  • G’day Gentlemen. Thanks for mentioning my comment from podcast 12 (No insult taken), but Dave you really to work on that Australian accent :P. Looking forward to podcast 14. Cheers Glenn
