Do you guys like that we're trying to keep it light and somewhat fun? Or would you prefer something more serious? (well, as serious as we meatballs can be.)

Do the cast the way it is,... maybe add some Soupy Sales Pies every now and then.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

I think you guys have a great balance. I don't like the overly formal formats (boring), and dislike the campy stuff (XPlay) just as much. The level you have is just about right.

I enjoy watching the podcast, and I like how it seems casual.

@Marco, got the HTC Evo. Turns out I get a 25% discount on my bill for working at Fred Meyer, plus they got the 4g service here.

This thing sure is hard to type on

Nice! The EVO is the best phone out there at this time--at least IMO. Make sure you check out xda-developers.com for mods! :)

I like it light and fun, and it's great to see that you three guys seem to be having a good time doing this! Will you be wearing costumes for the Halloween podcast?

It's good that Iyaz has moved to a smaller room for this podcast because the sound quality on his end has improved a lot (vs. the last podcast)!

I Love you guys, and I love your podcasts, so I'll lay it on the line: improving the video quality would make a really big improvement. I'm not sure if you're using the built-in webcams on your laptops, but you might want to consider something more upscale!

We're using Logitech webcams and we definitely want to improve that over Skype.  We're looking into it but any and all suggestions are appreciated!

I have a question or questions!!!

I want to know, How did HH start? Where did Marco and Dave meet? What do you do if any thing in real life, ie job? Or do you just run HH? How did each of you get into computers and at what age? What was the first computer you had that you can remember?

What's funny is that I'm in the same room, but a different angle. The "castle" background is my fireplace in my living room.

Yeah, sorry guys.  We may do up two next week, we're not sure.  Both Marco and I were traveling to a big brand name press event this week (under NDA) so we were a blown out and couldn't get it done.

We'll have one up soon though!  Maybe Monday... we'll see.

If I guess correctly can I get one of those things that you cant disclose? I bet you were at the AMD/ATI even for the launch of the 6000 series of card this next week.... thats my guess
