    The Discussion

      The link to the Drunktender project goes to Ping.

      The question I was looking to answer was where did you get the drinks database from?  Been looking for a good one for a while.

      Doh, good catch, fixed the link. I sent a quick email to Clint to see where he got it from. I know Robert Hess (Knowledge Chamber host) keeps one at Drinkboy.com

      Nice show. Didn't know about the Expression Blend addins.

      WoW - without addons.. I would never have gotten sucked into that game if it wasn't for the addons Smiley
    • Dan

      Me too, I just checked and I probably have at least 50 addons (not including Blizzard ones or addon options (Cartographer, PitBull) in my AddOns directory Smiley

      Speaking of AddOns, Sampy and I are working on a cool AddOn idea for Coding4Fun. It's too early to share, but it should be both useful & a good example for folks.

      The High Quality video of Ping is much better than This Week on C9. What's up with that?
    • Dan
      It's an encoding difference. We encode at a lower bit rate to reduce the total file size. We could change it, but it could mean 2x the size. If you think the resolution is too low, we can change it, but it does mean a bigger file size.

      Cheers,
      -Dan

      Personally I wouldn't mind a bigger file. Hopefully you'll get more feedback on this Smiley
