Hello guys,

This is a very helpful information keep going. Stijn helped me very much with a case I opened in the TAC and Blayne helped me in the Show podcast. Very nice work. THANK YOU!!

Good stuff.  Looking forward to seeing more, especially what advanced topics might be covered.  You guys should promote this a little more.  Even as a regular reader of the IPS forums, I just now noticed this had been added.

One other note - small problem with the volume balance, especially Stijn's dialogue relative to the added sound effects.  I had to turn up the volume to hear him, but got blasted by the "swoosh" that followed. Maybe just lower the volume on the effects?


Hello Michael,

Thanks for the feedback! We do plan to promote more. We just wanted to get a few episodes out first. We've completed shooting on Episode 2 and we're editing it now. We are also very excited to move into the meatier topics.

Thanks for the tip on the audio. We're learning - hopefully. I'll watch this point closely while editing future episodes.

Thank you,


Awesome Lads. I look forward to learning more about these bad boys.

Thank you.
