Hi guys,
Question for Bill Stebbins, how in heck does he backup 8TB? Or doesn’t he?
Listen to the show every week, along with the Simulcast! :-)

Cheers,
Jim Fowl

Email #2
I have a bit of unusual question this time.
Do you know of any old style turn-by-turn strategy game for Android?
I was a huge fan of “Master of Orion 2″. Kind of civilizations in space, and I recently got a craving for it again.
but since my primary computer has been an Asus transformer for the past 9 months, I was hoping you knew of something similar.

Also, what do you think of the vergecast doing listener call-ins?
They do some decent blogging, but I’m not sure they should interact with humans.
Their heads, in my opinion, are just too big for that kind of thing…

Keep up the good work.
