Excellent podcast. It was fun to hear both Dipsy and Morg. I will now read all Dipsy's posts with the British voice (as opposed to the American accent in my head. :shock: ) :D

Thought it did a great job representing all the value that we have at PlayDip. I joined the guys on Periscope when they were recording the other parts of the Podcast and was able to interact with them some on Periscope. Fun guys.

After Morg mentioned the player that was helping keep track of PbF results, I suffered a massive wave of guilt for falling down on that job. Off to get things straightened out!! :oops: :oops:

Oh, one random nitpick I noticed from the podcast.

I used to make this same mistake in the past, but "Elo" as it pertains to the rating system, isn't ELO (an acronym/alphabetism), but rather someone's name (Arpad Elo).

i.e.

"ee-low" (or the Hungarian pronunciation, probably closer to "ay-low") rather than "ee-ell-oh"

The same team decided to do a follow up with Morg and me, and are planning to do at least one more. If anyone is interested, the Live version is on Wed 12th April and the recorded version will be available on their site over Easter.

The Live bash isn't at a brilliant time for us in the UK though (2:30 am!)

Tune in live with Periscope or wait for the canned version over Easter!

Jeez, I thought it strange people were talking about the Electric Light Orchestra (ELO).

Fantastic to hear Dipsy's voice - not at all like I was expecting, but unlike Alman I think my expectations were more based on the preconceptions conjoured by the avatar! :D
