The TF2 Wizard is NaNoWriMo!

Broadcasting from beautiful Northern California, this is Ghomus. (Ghomus catchphrase) Joining me from only a quarter of the state away is Alludra. (Alludra greetings). And coming at us from the deserts of Las Vegas, is Acuzod. (AcuZod greeting)

[Host welcome and chitchat]

We’ve got a great show today, with special guest Beefmaster, but first, the news…

We at the podcast hope everyone made it safe through the recent hurricane/superstorm. We saw a lot of community spirit on both the forums and on twitter

MMO champion and wowpedia are virus ridden…at least according to google. The two sites where we get a ton of info have been flagged by the search engine. No word yet on why, or if this is another false positive so be aware and be careful.

Considering making the jump to windows 8? We have a thread discussing it in the community forums. So far no one is reporting any major conflict with games, but we are still keeping our fingers crossed. If you would like to discuss the latest MS OS or if you would like to warn anyone about the problems you have experienced, head on over to the forums.

NaNoWriMo is here! As you may be aware, we have quite a few amatauer and professional writers amongst the members of AIE. Many of whom partake in the National Novel Writing Month challenge every year. NaNoWriMo is a challenge to write a 50,000 word novel through the month of November. It doesn’t have to be any good, it just has to be 50,000 words, and hopefully a lot of fun. To learn more about NaNoWriMo, see To chat with other members of AIE taking the NaNoWriMo challenge, see the NaNoWriMo thread in the AIE forums.

The Frogpants group on LoseIt is a great place for all AIE/Frogpants members to work on their weight loss goals. The membership there has so far been super supportive, and they currently have a weight loss challenge going on for the group as a whole to lose 1000 pounds before next year’s nerdtacular. It’s another great place for the community to band together and support each other in something outside our normal hobbies.

And with that, it’s time to welcome our guest this week, Beefmaster from AIE Steam!…
