Dead air at the end of 747?

by erier2003 / June 17, 2008 5:37 AM PDT

Am I the only one who got seven and a half minutes of dead air at the end of Episode 747? I also did not get any outro music. The show simply ended with Molly telling listeners that the Firefox site was still down. Not a complaint, just a question. I listened for about two minutes of dead air, hoping for an easter egg or some secret code, but nothing happened. Happy

yes, dead air. That's what I get for rushing production through to get to a meeting. Re-upping in a few minutes. At least you didn't miss anything, I just failed to copy the end music up to the end of the dialogue so it sat where it was the day before: a few minutes later.

you mean you cut out the audio from the day before from the ending credits and then put it in the current days?

why not have "ending credits.mp3" and just insert it at the end? this way you can't make a copy/paste errors?

Yeah,

To cut down on post production time... So the beginning and ending music is already placed within the Audacity project. Every day that we go in to record, I delete the prior day's dialogue track... we record the show, I top and tail the dialogue for that day. Move the start of the dialogue to the middle of the opening music, move the end music to the middle of the end of the dialogue and bammo. Done.

...that is of course if I don't forget to move the end music over, which happened yesterday.

Believe me, much worse things can happen.

seems a copy/paste might work (its what i do for making he ringtones)

but then again.... who went to school for this? Happy

Plus there is no real problem unless you go OVERTIME which i am sure you take care of.

so... imho Jason.. you do this for a living, you know what to do better then i would ever Happy

Fair enough, makes sense.

I suppose when you have to do it a lot, saving yourself the 5 minutes of clicking and dragging for importing and placing the ads/music is really worth it. I think it it'd annoy me after the first two or three times, and I'd be looking for a way to cut that out.

Thanks for the little bit of extra information Jason! I'm looking forward to your next blog post on BOL!

I have another question
by erier2003 / June 18, 2008 3:31 AM PDT

but I don't know if it deserves its own thread. So I'll post it in here (we'll make this the "Silly Mistakes" thread). Did Tom intentionally throw the old album art on Episode 746? I remember him saying in the beginning of the episode that any name, art, show notes, etc. mistakes would be his fault because Jason was absent. Funny joke or silly mistake? Silly

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
