My question is: I know that you do a lot of advertising for squarespace and I am looking at using them to design my website but they only allow uploading of 20mb files. How do you guys deal with your podcast files?? Where do you store them?? Any suggestions? Thanks again for doing the show – I always enjoy hearing about all the new things in the tech world Chad Nicholas August 24, 2011 Chad, try http://www.libsyn.com. Best of Luck, Nicholas Curiosity63 August 20, 2011 Hello Cali, thank you and your team for another great episode of GB. I guess progress makes victims that have to be discontinued. First Symbian, then Meego and now WebOS. Shame but maybe someone smart picks them up and who knows maybe develop them further. It’s nice to dream, right?! I don’t think it’s such a good idea that the Amazon forrest is being archived by Google Street View. It should have been untouched. After all it’s only one of the last places where rare species live and they shouldn’t be disturbed. What can I say, I love animals, sorry! Take care and greetings, nick. P.S: Keep up the good work!
