For Episode 52 we had a special event–Tony was in PA, so we recorded our first episode together. Â I drove up to University Park, dragging the equipment with me, and Tony and I sat down with my brother in front of a “live audience” and talked tech.
Sadly, one of the problems with moving the equipment around, and doing something for “the first time” is that I make “first time mistakes” and this was no different. Â I tried to use the Zoom H4 recorder, but ran out of room. Â Luckily we caught it early, but sadly you will hear the difference.
Let us know what you think of the podcast, though, and please, share it with your friends!

- WINDOWS TIP: Spread a Windows desktop image across two monitors:
- Follow these steps in to display a large image across multiple monitors:
- Right click on the background and select Personalization.
- Click onÂ Desktop Background
- Select a background image that is at least as wide as the combined resolution of both of your monitors.Ã‚ For Example, I have two 19Ã¢â‚¬ï¿½ monitors that have a resolution of 1280Ã—1024.Ã‚ I need an image of 2560Ã—1024 or greater so that it can be displayed across both monitors.
- Next, this is the step that most users would never even think about trying: Select the Tile picture positioning option as shown below. This is the only option that will display your background image across multiple monitors.
- GOOGLE VOICE AND SKYPE
- Like Peanut Butter and chocolate, these are two great things that are better together. Hereâ€™s what is great:
- Get a Google Voice account and number
- Pay $30 (for one year) to get a â€œskype INâ€ phone number
- now add that number to your Google voice number. Now people calling your google voice can reach you on Skype (if you want them to.)
- EVEN MORE powerful: For another $30/year you can get â€œskype OUTâ€ and make unlimited calls to REAL numbers in the US and Canada. But it gets BETTER:
- In the SKYPE application, set your caller-ID number to your Google number. Then the only number people will see if your GVoice #.
- By doing this, you add another way to receive calls, but still only have to give out one number. Sweet, eh?
