Sorry if the show goes on a little too long, feel free to complain to topofthepods@gmail.com - we are just making up for not doing a show this friday.

This is another repost - either feedburner or libsyn are playing up - does anyone else who uses this combination have the same problem?

Sorry, Rob, WALT DISNEY IS DEAD... no amount of "regurgitation" is going to bring him back.

I can't believe Walt Disney was swallowed by birds. *sigh*

Excellent show and good list.

The binary code you read out, if I got it right: 0011010000110010, converts to 13362 in decimal and 42 in plain (ascii) text.
It could be a reference to the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, where 42 to the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe and everything.

0011010000110010...? Isn't that the phone-in number that the jingle plays in the 1980s local radio spoof Radio Active (Angus Deayton et alia)? Or am I just showing my age???!

I thought it was an old android saying that roughly translated to "Don't stand around gibbering when your life is in mortal danger"

But I suppose I should have spotted the HHGTG reference there.
