From Dave: Raef Granger, AKA Hollywood, has been trying to get me into Flames of War for a while. I’ve been intrigued more lately as I see how much they are learning. Cool things like how Sherman tanks were welded at first and then cast in a solid peice, and later upgraded with bigger engines…I’m sure I’ll fall soon, I do love miniature games when I have the time to paint and play them. Check out his latest attempt to tempt me…very cool. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=IKNe-na2YCE

I am writing to you on my new iPad 2. My wife bought it for me as a surprise gift, I’ve been talking a lot about one and I was totally psyched when I got home and saw it on the kitchen island. The new iPad 3 was out yesterday and as any good geek would I took a moment to reflect in whether I was happy about getting the old technology…for about a second. I am totally psyched. If you have not had a tablet before, especially if you are an iPhone user, this is a must have. I am blown away by the little things like how easy it is to read my gmail, view the AppStore and when I downloaded my blog hosting app this morning, I found that was intuitive and easy where on the iPhone it was cramped and tough to utilize. Don’t get me wrong, the iPhone is awesome, I love it, but this little gem has a place now. I think it will get the most use on my couch and at my desk at work. My phone is still perfect for podcasts, audible, phone calls, Hero Academy, and lots of other things but if i want to read an article, a comic, or do something creative with a picture or sketch pad, this is the way to go. We surfing is better too. Of course, games designed for the iPad are awesome, so far I only downloaded Neuroshima Hex and it is…
Stino: Hi all. I just wanted to introduce myself to any listeners/page visitors that are enjoying the show. My name is Justin Alix (they call me Stino) and I am the editor/producer of the NerdHerders Podcast. Back a few months ago when Ian mentioned that he was thinking of starting this podcast and told me he had both Dave and Matt very interested in the idea, I immediately offered to help in any way that I could. I am a college student with end result of attaining degrees in Computer Information Systems and Computer Engineering, and I knew that a chance to sharpen my audio editing skills and techniques along with the creative process would be ideal and assist in a future career. With this being my first project, I am still rather new to the whole thing. I am having a lot of fun, collaborating with the guys to come up with bumpers and segment intros, as well as creating my own bumpers such as the spoiler warning in Episode 2. Obviously there’s lots of room for improvement (I know my Vader voice was horrible), but that’s what this is all about! I use Adobe Audition CS5.5 and Audacity to put everything together, and I am definitely open to any comments. I am still learning the software, so if anyone has any tips, tricks, or suggestions on how to make it better please let me know! If I ever find the time I will be starting my own blog,…

Thanks! http://traffic.libsyn.com/nerdherders/Episode_2_Electric_Bookaloo.mp3 Books & Movies, we really love them both, but we love even more is when a great book is made into a great movie! We count down our top five in the Thunderdome and you’ll see yet again that we don’t always see eye to eye…or decade to decade. Board Game Geek (www.boardgamegeek.com) is featured on the Utility Belt while Hero Quest is looked over in the Vault. Trivia: This is Mark 2 of Episode 2 because we failed to record the first one correctly…boohoo! It was a good one, and you’ll see that topic again in the future (TOYS!)
