After a decent rest, the team reassemble to produce a bumper edition timed at the duration of a football match (including injury time).
In an effort to give both listeners a slim chance of identifying the British accents and regional dialects, the gang perpetually introduce and thank each other profusely by name throughout.
Fresh from the triumphant completion of his first year’s undergraduate course at Aberystwyth, Luke reviews a couple of fast food outlets available in that fine city.
In the new ‘Takeways’ section inspired by Tim Bray, Luke favours ‘Finger Lickin’ Chicken’ for its close proximity to the Pier nightclub although he docks 10 points for only selling Coca Cola Light. Finger Lickin’ just edges out Sam’s Fried Chicken (‘hard chicken, sometimes live’) but enjoys an excellent location adjacent to the legendary 24 hour Spar.
Like all embryonic podcasts, the urgent need for a TINAP Code of Conduct (CoC) is finally recognised which inevitably leads to 43 minutes of smutty, Viz style innuendo and endless double entendres.
Helpful hints and tips for coping with the stresses and strains of commuting are discussed in a vain effort to restore Richard (train rambler) Cutts’ sanity.
r7 corrected loads of embarrassing musical related errors which we are pleased to correct.
The fine art of podcast plagiarism is discussed so David introduces a brilliant new innovation - Room x11r5 - which is, in no way, inspired by Room x1101 from The Dick Turpin Roadshow. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
Dr. Michael C. Harris and Andy are locked in a deadly embrace of not having the requisite knowledge to appear on each other’s fictional podcasts.
StatusNet appoint a new CEO, Mark Ruddock, who won’t actually eat his own dog food and use identi.ca. Luke is dispatched to Canada with a tin of Pedigree Chum and a pair of rusty pliers to rectify this situation.
David claims he’s an intellectual (like Josh Wood) by joining a social network aimed at ferocious, voracious readers called ‘Byliner’.
A recent unplanned 6 hour outage on identi.ca forces us to confront the elephant in the room and contemplate escape routes if identi.ca ever, God forbid, became permanently unusable.
David expresses an interest in self-hosting his own StatusNet instance but is completely bamboozled by reading ‘INSTALL’ so goes back to smoking his pipe and reading books.
Andy produces documentary evidence that a Web based installer was included in Laconica 0.7 that made installation as easy as the famous 5 minute WordPress installation.
We anticipate the release of StatusNet 1.0 by pondering on how close Evan is to his stated target of 1,000,000 StatusNet instances.
Luke has concerns about whether the StatusNet 1.0 API will be extended to support development of fully functional StatusNet clients (e.g conversations).
Despite wearing industrial ear defenders, we are deafened by the prolonged and very loud Telecaster feedback kindly provided by Fabian Scherschel.
Andy splashes out on an Acer netbook, installs Chromium OS on it (rendering the 250GB hard disk redundant) and enjoys the experience until he lost his internet connection for 3 hours.
Andy and Luke are privileged enough to witness The Mighty Fall in person in London and Manchester respectively and confirm they are ‘Always different, always the same’.
‘This Is Not A Podcast’ is very proud and honoured to present the wonderful ‘I Am Not Left Handed’ introducing their latest single ‘Alone (It’s not so bad)’ from the forthcoming album ‘The Fire And The Sigh’.
The sports roundup mourns the death of Rob Daley, the father of young British diver, Tom Daley and provides the exciting and predictable conclusion to Andy’s London Olympics ticket saga.
We also look at Wimbledon, or at least the footage of Pippa Middleton and a pretty blonde lady sucking on a strawberry in a suggestive manner.

The history of Fab’s Telecaster from the man himself:
The guitar is called Leilani and started life as a Made in Mexico (MIM) Standard Telecaster with sunburst finish. I bought it in 2004. I have since changed the neck (the current neck is from a MIM Baja Tele) and stripped down the paint on the body. I’ve refurbished it late last year in vintage blonde myself. The electronics are all custom by now with a modded Leosounds neck pickup and a 52’ RI bridge pickup and corresponding old-style bridge. I’ve also build in an S3-switch and change the whole cabling while shielding the inside as well. So in short, it’s a true Frankencaster now, all modded to hell but exactly as I like it.
Dan Lynch’s excellent review of Unity.
