    Show this to anyone who hasn’t seen it, and try to convince them that this is only episode # 2. Production quality good, On camera people, confident and entertaining, opening, transitions, special effects, smooth and polished. All this and quality content too? You guys have nailed this thing to the floor !!! I am so impressed.

    Decent production as before, however in comparison to the first this episode was very boring and it took quite a bit just to see it through. The only vaguely interesting segment was the webcam one, I was even suprised at the one that suggested using ‘powermenu’. The utility is notoriously buggy and difficult to setup, I have a good 5 programs less bloated (e.g. ‘trayconizer’, infinately simpler and less buggy) I could give you to put on the program.

    Furthermore, all the humour from the last one seems to have been completely sucked out of the second episode, all the little unix commands and fun things like that in the titles have gone, the comedy n64 hack was gone and in its place we get a picture of a bunny in a tower case and a guide to batching configuring windows firewall that basically concludes ‘dont use windows firewall’

    I agree the first show was better, but keep up the hard work. I know it is not easy to come up with new stuff every time. I would liked to have seen more from the ice caves. Maybe that is coming up in the next release. Tech in strange places is cool.

    Hak on!

    If you don’t mind sharing your thoughts, what do you think was better about the first show that we missed in the second show?
