The Name

We’re closing in on a name (and thus a domain and a website and a real podcast feed, etc.). Here’s our current list, please give us your feedback or alternate suggestions.

  • BytecodePodcast
  • Four Horsemen On Software
  • Four Horsemen Podcast
  • Technology Roundtable Podcast

The Audio

Audio quality’s a bit worse this week. We’re working on it – it’s harder than you’d think (you should have heard what the source audio files sounded like). Right now we use Skype for the call, but everyone records their own audio and I edit and clean it up. We use Call Graph as a backup in case someone’s audio recording doesn’t work. UPDATE: Fixed a problem with K Scott’s audio. Much better now.

The Hosting

So far we’ve been hosting the audio on SkyDrive. We’ve been planning to host it ourselves, but I’m wondering if SkyDrive’s hosting would be sufficient provided that we had a solid podcast RSS feed. This should only be a problem if you can’t access the files for some reason – it’s requiring a login, or blocked by your corporate network or something. Please let me know if you have problems with this episode so we can make an informed decision. Other alternatives we’ve considered are the Site5 Uberplan and Amazon S3. Got any input there?
