TOTP - Top Ten Things I Hate About DIY

Welcome to all our new listeners from the iTunes homepage, we hope the extra surge in traffic didn't play havoc with our servers earlier on today. Jon is poorly with the flu, and being unable to speak isn't a good attribute when it comes to hosting a podcast. Instead we skype the hotline to Scotland to bring you Mark from the Tartan Podcast, he's been decorating and this has enraged him so much that he has compiled a hate list:-

  • 10 - Planning
  • 9 - Going to the DIY store
  • 8 - Paint pots
  • 7 - Arguing
  • 6 - Barley White
  • 5 - Getting started
  • 4 - Shelves
  • 3 - Never looks how you planned
  • 2 - Cleaning up
  • 1 - Doing it yourself

As this was a spur of the moment Skype call the audio quality wasn't quite up to scratch, but the main thing is we've done a show. We should hopefully be back to our 5 days a week schedules of shows. Mark has kindly agreed to do a show on Friday, in the mean time if you are a new listener we have almost 150 shows in our archives on www.topofthepods.com waiting for your ears.

If you find you are having problems downloading shows then try replacing libsyn.com with libsyn.org in the path and it should download no problem.

Good show lads. Doing well even with Jon off sick. No tumbleweeds for this one :-)
Rob, how can you fit 7 tables in one room? And why do you have 7 tables in the first place? Either you have small tables or one very large room. We have 2 tables in proper use, and 2 tables in the basement.
I'm a terrible hoarder of boxes, ask the wife. Either it's a new item & I don't want to throw its box out, just in case it needs to be returned, or it is a software box (which I am convinced, one day, will be worth something, for its artistic value, due the fact that everyone else threw them away).

Anyone in the market for some software boxes? They're in excellent condition, single owner... it's ok, we have plenty!

Of the 3 podcasts I started listening to regularly, this is the only one I listen to now. One seems to have just stopped altogether, the site is broken, no image, no text, error message. The other is turning into a piece of complete and utter poo, and literally going down the toilet (I am unsubscribing today).
Started listening to a lot of the former TechTV people ones (TWiT, SecurityNow, Diggnation, Digital Life TV).
This is still my top podcast.
Way to go TOTP! You guys rock! :-)

Well done on the sudden surge in listener numbers - it's well deserved. I was right about being over 1000 in my comments on the 31st Oct show then !

At uni at the moment so don't have time to listen to the show, but hooray! for having Mark on again.

Hope Jon gets well soon and recovers from the ManFlu.
