Phonecalls and Fingernails

OK, since somebody had to mention it... we could hear you talking over the calls today in the podcast. Happy That didn't bother me so much as... YIKES please set a quality-limit for which calls make the cut for the podcast. No offense to Bill from Baltimore because his call was good once I actually lowered the volume but I think I actually ripped my headphones off in pain when the recording started.

I'll just go scrape my fingernails on a blackboard for ten or twenty minutes to cool down from that one Happy

Twice, even Wink


PS Obviously it wasn't so bad as I made it sound. But I think I did cringe when it came on. Just the initial shock of hearing gentle studio quality banter followed by "screeeeeekkkkkktch tt ttch" Like I said, wasn't so bad once I turned my audio down and the call was interesting.

Veronica needs a hug.

You should be ashamed of yourself, Kevin, for doing such a terrible thing.

I thought it might offend Bill but not you guys. The content of the call really was worth hearing just, maybe read by Tom or you in that particular case. The cell noise was just a bit much in that call at the level I was playing the podcast when it came on.

I assumed the talking over it was an accident - either that or EVP Happy (go (ahem) rent White Noise.) In fact, I found myself trying to hear what was being said by you and Tom. Kinda like an easter egg in the podcast.

The smileys were meant to say don't take it too seriously. You nor Tom nor Bill's feelings should be hurt by it. Ugh... I really hate text when trying to communicate. Since I'm failing miserably, it's time to take a break for a while.

Thats what I considered it to be, I kept trying to make out what they were saying. It was an added bonus.

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?
