RossCode Weekly #041?- 03.30.2006

I've been dabbling with Audacity?a little bit, and I think I was able to filter out a bit of the dungeon ambience this week. Let me know if you hear a difference, and if so, then I'll keep doing it. I may even start dabbling with some other software to record the show too in the next few weeks, as well as actually looking into changing the show up a little bit?- intro music (maybe even an actual intro), maybe no more background music, etc.?We'll see though. Anyway, this week, we have 35 stories in less than 30 minutes. To me anytime i hit better than a story per minute is good SNR!
