Missed Last Night’s Live Show, Apologies

I’m sorry for missing last night’s live episode of The RaT Project. I had some rather important things come up at the last minute in real world that kept me from being on TalkShoe to host the show. Complete apologies for that.

I shall return next Saturday at 9PM EST for a Live Episode of The RaT Project. Right now I’m planning on discussing the series finale of Monk, set to air this Friday at 9PM EST on USA Network. Along with the finale, feel free to discuss the show in general.

Hope to see you there. 🙂

Updated Episode Database, Corrected Episodic Numbering

So, I was looking through my accumulated episodes of The RaT Project in an effort to finally figure out how many episodes I’ve recorded. The earliest episode I could find was from Saturday, 27 May, 2006. There were a good number of episodes recorded live on TalkShoe (show ID 21129) last year.

Anyway, I have 53 episodes recorded and in the archives, and now added to the database. With that corrected numbering, the next episode is number 54, and will be live on TalkShoe this coming Saturday night, 9PM EST, TalkShoe ID 21129. Calling in to the show is easy (I recommend using X-Lite to call in via SIP).

The RaT Project Live 37

Join me for the first Live episode of The RaT Project in well over a year. Show is at TalkShoe ID 21129.

Possible topics for tonight’s episode include:

Modern Warfare 2
New Super Mario Bros. Wii
Pokemon Talk
Doctor Who Podshock Second Life Meet-Up
Nintendo DS: 5th Birthday

Hope to see you there.
