TOTP - Top Ten Things I Would Do If I Could Pause Time

Following the time travel theme from yesterday, Sean from Riverside issued us with a challenge to write a top ten of things that we would do if we could pause time:-


  • 10 - Sleep on the job
  • 9 - Not worry about an extended toilet break
  • 8 - Look up stuff on the internet quickly to appear intelligent
  • 7 - Rob a bank
  • 6 - Throw rocks and stuff in water to see what splashes look like in slow motion
  • 5 - Look up girls
  • 4 - Shave parts of Jon
  • 3 - Answer all my emails
  • 2 - Dodge bullets
  • 1 - Reposition people

We also talked to Linda on Skype about Podcastuser Magazine - this is a free magazine available from http://www.podcastusermagazine.com. We also talked to songwriter Jeff Shields about the great song he wrote for us, you can read more about Jeff at his bio page and download some of his tunes at SoundClick.

Now that I'm awake, guys...
What I should have said was that Podcast User Magazine has articles written for listeners in addition to information for podcasters and musicians and the business community: how-to articles, tutorials, and even podcast reviews. All that in addition to the crazy pic of Jon...

Thanks, from -5 GMT (...the things I would do if I could pause time!),

Guys, loved Linda's interview. Tell her that she needs to start podcasting...

Excellent list.

Rob you would love the movie Clockstoppers, it's a watch that can stop time, well actually it doesn't actually stop time, it accelerates the wearer's molecules so that go into 'hypertime' and everything else appears to stand except for very fast things like a bee's wings. At one point one of them goes into double hypertime and turns into a kind of ghost that pass through objects.

There is now a podcatcher program available for Nokia series 60 phones.

Handango Link

I've just bought it so I'll see how good it is.

Bazza,

I'll need to check this out when I get home but I can't imagine the bills (or the time it'd take) to download files the size of your average podcast. I've got a mobile Feedburner app on my Nokia that will alert me to who has new shows in their feed so I can then go fire up the PC and use my 'catcher. Very nice little tool.

You should try using the subscribe using email link on the page - if you have a blackberry or other push email device you can get notified via email. If you have a windows powered device I suggest PocketRss - around $5 and downloads podcasts over wifi or other connections.

Bazza said...

Yeah I tried it last night, it does take a while to download episodes even on 3G, in fact I gave up waiting in the end. When you update your feeds it does just give you an episode list though, it doesn't attempt to download any episodes until actually click on them. Probably ok if you pay a flat fee for data transfer, and have a bit of patience.

It does also come with a pc companion application which downloads the episodes on your pc then sends them to you phone, it will even compress them to 1/10th of their original size apparently to save space on your phone.

bazza - anything similar for a Samsung D600 phone?
