Good point, Ken. Good idea too, and whilst I aint lostnbronx, but i'd be
happy to discuss the subject matter on the Hacker Public Radio
Saturday Sessions.

Epicanis, given how you were actually researching to make an episode out 
of it,
if you want to do the HPRSS thing, i have no problem crediting 
completely to you
either should we actually do this.

To those who were waiting for me to twist this discussion into weird 
directions again,
sorry. I will refrain from that until the roundtable (seems like 
everybody finds it a good idea).

sorry for breaking my promise, but thank you. According to my personal
definition I am now a hacker. Yay /argumentum ad verecundiam

Actually, I was referring more to using a mumble server and discussing the
subject. Whether we use celt or one of the superiour codecs doesn't matter
to me.

If you want, I can record a 'what do i think a hacker is' thingie 
tomorrow, and
we can play back our definitions before we begin the discussion this
