Hi MJ,

We've added the feed but someone at Apple has to have a look at it before it gets listed. As soon as we hear that we are in there we'll let you know.

Interested to know what you think of it by the way...

I got impatient and manually subscribed to the feed in ITunes - I think overall Apple have done a pretty good job. It needs lots more work on the directory but it's a good start & will bring in loads more listeners. I'm seriously considering moving from ipodder which will be sad as I've grown to love the lemon. I now need to stop hogging your bandwidth & inflating your user numbers as I've currently got 3 subscriptions to TOTP at the mo on various computers. /confession

One more thing - the spoilers are still displayed when browsing from a pocket pc. Don't you guys have a proper QA department :)

Bloody funny video.

p.s. Why was Rob singing the theme tune to blind date at the start of the show? I'm guessing it was a Freudian slip as he's dreaming of "trading up" now he's a podcast God.

Another office prank:
Turn down the brightness and contrast of the monitors.
The servicedesk will be overloaded with telefone calls.

Here's one we did on a mate at work: when he was away from his desk, we emptied the contents of a hole-punch into his umbrella and did it all back up. Two days later as he was leaving his flat for work, it started to rain. He popped up his brolly.... and was instantly enveloped by a snowstorm of hole-punchings in front of highly amused passers-by.

umbrella gag is a good one. when is that rain coming? cheers Grant.

monitors one is cool too. The amount of times I get calls from my clients about monitors dying only to realise that the brightness and contrast are like at nothing. hmmm, sounds like i could make some money with that gag...

Rob was singing the correct tune it was me that sung blind date. I'm an idiot. and no i'm not trading up. well thats my story if the wife does ask!

Highest position on Podcastalley was 4!!!! How did that happen??? Thanks guys, really, thanks for voting. How cool was that to see us at the top? Bloody cool.

QA dept is closed as they are now in a brainstorming excersice with the QA QA Dept.

Mark. Is that your real name? I love it. LeShark. Are you in money lending by any chance?

#5 was a cool prank.
I don't have what it takes to try it out though.
