I just wanted to add to the discussion about WiFi roaming that was brought up by a listener. If I understood him correctly, he wanted to simply connect another AP to his network via Ethernet cable. Simply configuring both APs to use the same SSID and WPA passphrase, but on different channels should do the trick.

If his wireless network uses the 2.4GHz spectrum, it's important to choose channels that are far apart, because there is significant overlap between them. Searching for "List of WLAN Channels" on wikipedia should result in a page with some helpful diagrams (I tried to link directly to the page, but my comment kept getting flagged as spam!).

Oh, and maybe do a wireless survey first to see what channels the neighbours are using so you can steer clear of the very crowded ones!

I just wanted to know why you limit the feed to 10 entries.  I have some back episodes to catch up on, and hate having to download them 1 by one.

Is there a way you somehow toss me an archive?

Hey Nathan, can you invest in some antihistamine before the next podcast? O_o

I've heavily invested in antihistamines. Sometimes it doesn't matter :(

I enjoyed hearing you on a podcast again Lloyd. I used to listen to you on the Extremetech podcast (in addition to MPC podacst of course). I realize you are not part of the core staff with MPC but I would like to hear you included in future MPC podcasts whenever possible. Keep it up guys!

Any other listeners want to second this?

I have a train to catch! We record in the late afternoon! It's not my fault!

BTW, Gordon already defined pulling a "Nathan" as someone who exists the podcast after his contribution is done.
