You all, with the exception of Code Cruncher, will miss how much work
this was. Big props to Dave for getting this together.
It does highlight how important it is to send us (where possible) a
lossless media file, as both the Internet Archive and our own scripts
will produce better audio. If you don't have it lossless then send us
what you have :) "Any audio is better than no audio."
It also helps if you send in "good" show notes. The definition if "good"
is dependant on the show, but in general it's (links to) any supporting
information that the listener might be interested in.
Again big thanks to Code Cruncher for uploading the first 620 shows and
to Dave for the ongoing effort.
