    This is a great idea guys.

  79. Brian's mouth spewed forth:

    bigsquid, you guys are the best

  80. jerry stephens commented thusly:

    Seriously, you need to stop switching from one person to the other… very distracting. I was an online instructer for a school for a couple years, you need to review and watch what you look like on screen. When a person is talking, keep the camera on that person.

    • Jeff broke a vow of silence to say:

      Thanks for the feedback, I too think it’s annoying. Unfortunately it’s a sideeffect of the google hangout software, we don’t have nearly as much control as we’d like. It’s all pretty much automated by the software. We’re certainly going to be looking into ways to improve our presentation as we go along.

      • Zach B said this nonsense:

        Pretty sure whoever’s PC was streaming this can lock onto a single person by double clicking their feed along the bottom. I think that’s how it works it a regular g-hangout – been a while since I’ve been in one and not sure how what you’re using differs from the “normal” version. The only issue with that is you have to keep on clicking on people to change the camera.

      • Jeff said:

        Yeah, we discussed and played with that feature, but we decided to let it ride this first time. Next show we’ll try the manual switching to see if that works any better.

  81. Craig S. commented thusly:

    pick me

  82. David commented thusly:


  83. Matt F. said:

    Comments posted before 10pm shouldn’t have counted… just sayin!!

  84. Chevis White's mouth spewed forth:

    Awesome show. Cool giveaway, y’all keep it up.

  85. Trace proclaimed on this day:

    Question, earlier show for East Coasters ???

    • Jeff proclaimed on this day:

      We’re discussing it. Right now, this just happened to be a time that worked for all of us while we were at home, or in Cubby’s case, in the car.

  86. jerry stephens said:

    Can you have some guests on (like us in your audience)

    • Jeff said:

      Anything is possible. Our exact format is still up in the air. Right now we’re playing it by what we think is going to work. If our audience (all you guys and gals) tell us differently then we’ll make changes (within reason).

  87. Nathan said:

    You guys rock!! Can’t wait for the next

  88. xerxes proclaimed on this day:

    laff all u want jeff hoy ur dimise is neer

  89. Zach B said:

    Having to leave comments on this page makes watching the vid kinda hard. When you leave a comment here, the page refreshes and kills the live feed so you miss a few seconds of talking while you wait for the page to reload and hit play. I’m assuming you want the comments on your own website so you can dq those who try to cheat the system?

    • Jeff said:

      Excellent point, thank you. We’ll be investigating other options for future shows. Perhaps a live chat box embedded below the video.

  90. Brian Rohe proclaimed on this day:

    YAY! I WON!! THANKS!!!

  91. isaac proclaimed on this day:

    sweet vid 1! hope im not to late to enter, oh well!

  96. Marco Del Valle commented thusly:

  97. Marco Del Valle opened their gaping maw and spake:

    That truck-give it here!

  98. Mike McFarland commented thusly:

    I want the truck !!!!

  99. duston opened their gaping maw and spake:

    I think i missed the show…dang nab it. You can blame Steam for their Falls sales and the addictive game play of Borderlands 2

  100. Michael Ro proclaimed on this day:

    Is this really random? I want a Durango!!!
