    errr… right click where exactly?

    G’day Marnie, you must have caught the page as I was uploading the file. It is now there and available for download.

  3. Shit you must’ve been up late.. that was at about 3am!

  4. Hey, just a thought.. You should install a plug in to notify people who’ve commented of follow up comments. It saves them coming back to check for replies… and well, who doesn’t love getting emails?

    Marnie #1 (LOL) – I finished editing and writing the show notes about 3am. I’m not a morning person (thank you, Captain Obvious!) and most days even if I am not working, I’ll get up about lunchtime and go to bed after midnight. That’s just the way I roll, especially considering I only had Saturday off.

    Marnie #2 – I checked the WP forum and it appears that with this WP hosted version, the only way that will be possible is to subscribe to the comments feed the comments RSS feed.

  6. I don’t think I’ve ever played the handball game you described in this show. When I was in grade school, soccer was all the rage, and a game called “Four Square”.

  7. Erk

    Jen, apart from handball at my schools we used to play cricket in summer and touch football and soccer in winter.

    What was Four Square?

  8. I think I remember Four Square… was that where you all stand in your own ‘square’ and hit the ball all different ways?

  9. Yes, Marnie, that was what Four Square was all about. We had all these different names for specific ways to bounc the ball back at someone else’s square. It quickly turns into an intense competition.

  10. Erk

    Marnie and Jen, it sounds like a modified version of the handball that Drue and I used to play. I presume you used a tennis ball?

  11. Four Square rules. I’d play that right now if someone asked me to.

    Glad you were able to save this episode by the way, Erk. Enjoyed it.
