TOTP - Top Ten Web Time Wasters

Recorded live from Jons living room, Mark sent us his top ten list of ways to waste time whilst you are on the internet:-

Big apologies for the sound quality of today's show, with everyones kind donations we've brought a Samsung C01U - but its probably the worst microphone for podcasters we've ever found. Not only is it the worst microphone but its backed up by the worst customer support ever (non-existent to be precise). Today's show is very bad, we've had to scrap tomorrows as it was totally indecipherable. Podcaster? Don't buy Samsung.
