RossCode Weekly #035 - 02.01.2006

Like I said in the show, it was a low-energy night. I lost the show notes due to my own error, and had to redo them. Not something I wanted to do, but the second time was quicker than the first at least!

And,?in case you were wondering, the Wings pulled it out, 3-2. I told you they shouldn't have been losing!
