  1. Sounds good on the H4 accept the sample rate does sound a little low so if you increase that the quality will be 100% better.

  2. You can actually add any RSS feed you’d like to your bunny. There’s a few that you can easily select right from the Nabaztag website. But you can also add any feeds that aren’t there. For example, we’ve got the RSS feed for the local newspaper plugged into ours.

    Keep in mind that you MUST have at least one computer with a wireless card installed in order to do your bunny’s initial setup. There’s no USB connectivity or anything like that.

  3. Politically correct nursery rhymes are annoying! When I used to work at a day care, I would refuse to read the politically correct versions of them. It was either the right way, or not at all. Most of them have a historical aspect, so, to change that would just be wrong, in my opinion. For example: “Ring around the Rosy”, has something to do with the plague. Say no to politically correct nursery rhymes! ;)

    Yay! Your bunny is on the way! :) A “Bunny-off” is eminent. Well, as soon as we figure out what a “Bunny-off” actually is.

    I enjoyed listening to this very relaxed Erkpod show today.

    Nath – I’ve fixed the sample rate now for episode 112 onwards for the H4. Cheers, mate.

    Shawno – Can’t wait for Bunny. Is there somewhere to plug in Bunny to the mixer? I hope to have it before I go on my roadtrip this weekend.

    Jen – PC anything annoys me. I hate it when I feel the need to self-censor myself in case I upset someone. I enjoyed the relaxed Erk Pod but it did feel strange, especially after RT5!
