    I think Krispy Kreme had two problems when they came out to the east. A) They over expanded. B) Atkins craze started up.

    Zune Users!:

    zune://subscribe/?TheGeekbox=http://geekbox.libsyn.com/rss

    Run that link in your browser.

  36. Ryan Scott says:

    Nazz, I will definitely take that into consideration. I encoded it at 128kbps, because I figured that’s pretty standard. The next one will possibly be a little lower if necessary. I also didn’t expect it to be quite this long. :)

  37. Jim says:

    100 megs is a serious bitch on dial-up. I can’t download this unless you compress it more – that’d take me something like eight hours to download.

  38. Sopiep says:

    I look forward to enjoying what all you guys have to say! You’re the coolest, Ryan!

  39. Kevin says:

    2 HOURS YES!!!!can’t wait

  40. Nazz says:

    Thank you Ryan. But next time could you compress the audio a bit more? 100MB is a bit heavy for people with download caps.

  41. ZenGaijin says:

    Been waiting for this for a long time get that Zune feed up and I’m ready to ROCK!

    Also, DUGG!
