Is it just me, or did monday's podcast have an echo? I was listening to it through my headphones, and for the first time, I noticed an odd echo in the sound. This didnt happen when I listened to the others again. Did anyone else notice this, or is it my headphones.

I didn't notice anything

But I do think the file was at a lower bitrate than normal. Trying to find an echo, I could only hear slight , uh, "fuzzies" (not sure of what real term to use), but only because I was looking for something.

Just leaves a wide open space for echo.

Or it could be the lower bitrate Veronica tried. She can explain more but before anyone says it, yes we're using LAME.

When i listened again, i noticed that if I only had on one ear on my headphones it was fine, but with both the sync was a little off, so it wasn't really an echo, but sounded like one. I don't know how that works exactly, but one side was going faster than the other.

That's mostly where I noticed it and then it wasn't so bad after that.

I knew it. Yes, I encoded it with LAME at 96kbps this time, and you still noticed the difference!

That's it, I'm sticking to what I always do.

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?
