  1. The fifth instalment gets cut off at the end, which is probably unintentional, so I thought I'd let you know.

  2. You did something part way through which completely eliminated the loud background hiss that has been on all the earlier instalments. Whatever it was, please do it again in the future :)

  3. Part 5 is cut off at the end mid word. Also I have to agree with Alex. If you don't know what got rid of the hissing sound make sure and figure out what it was. Sounds so much better without it.

    BTW, Love the story so far. It kills me to have to wait for more. Please keep them coming!

  4. Thanks, guys -- sorry about the weirdness. I'll pick it up from the break-off point when I do my next recording. I'm not sure what fixed the hiss, but at a guess, that was when the fan on my laptop switched off (obviously this isn't something I have any control over!)

  5. Love the story so far - can't wait for the optimistic bit :-)
    If fan is causing hiss probably RF (doesn't sound like fan noise) so one solution might be a better RF shielded microphone/cable?

  6. You got a PowerBook, right?

    The more prominent reasons for a hot PB (and thus the fan kicking in) are: charging the battery, using it on a soft surface (like a couch, a bed or a thick table cloth) and some process that uses much CPU.

    For example on my PB Mozilla's CPU usage tends to go way up after a time and I have to restart it. You may not notice anything getting slower, but you can see how much CPU your sytem uses with the command 'top -o cpu' in a Terminal.

    Love the story, btw!

  7. This file (episode 5) is corrupt. It's doesn't play via the Windows Midia Player. The episodes play though, and it's a good story!!!
