Hey Gadgettes.

Mark from Australia, who dislikes alarm noises here, I wanted to let you know that i have set up (i think) a Twitter account for Gadgettes with a twitterfeed running from your blog. Hope you like it. If you guys want access let me know and i’ll send you the passwords.

LTS,
Mark

Dear Jason,

I am one of those listeners who enjoys falling asleep listening to Gadgettes, of course I listen to it again for the content when I’m awake, but there is no need for that evil alarm clock sound, especially at the end of the podcast when I’m nice and out. Playing it twice in the last episode was just gratuitous obnoxiousness on your part and then you made me go to bed angry.

Don’t do that again!
Julia
