Had some issues with Thay's audio this episode, thus leading to a several week delay in getting the show out. Fortunately, Thay seems to have disappeared, so we haven't recorded anything new either.

Speaking of which, has anyone seen Thay recently? I haven't seen him in a while. If you bump into him online, tell him we need to record.

Sorry for the late upload this week - I'd like to lay all the blame on Thay, but he only added to the delay by a day or two. It's all doom and gloom this week, with Microsoft buying Skype, PSN, Blizz subs dropping, and the questionable release of Brink. Enjoy!
