Taking iWeb 08 even further – Part 7

On February 20, 2008, in Features, How-To, by Guy Serle

Are we having fun yet? You’ve made a Master Page, set up your Welcome page, played around with graphics and page sizes, all without knowing a single bit of HTML. Now, we’re going to get into what sets iWeb apart from most other web page creation software. Sure if you know CSS, PHP, HTML, and other buzz words I just pulled out of my head, you can make a site that dances and weaves across a web browser like some bad 60’s hippy movie. Unfortunately you probably don’t know about those things (don’t feel bad, neither do I), but you want your site to look like you spent a lot more time on it than you did.

Macspiration 93
Podcast Spring Cleaning

On July 25, 2007, in How-To, Macspiration, by Donny Yankellow


Have you ever deleted a podcast from iTunes and you are asked if you want want to move the deleted files to the trash?

I always say yes, thinking I would be recovering a lot of hard drive space. Well, it turns out I was wrong.

I don’t know why, but I recently decided to look into my “Podcasts” folder. (To do this go to your hard drive, open “Users,” open your username, open “Music,” open “iTunes,” open “iTunes Music,” and open “Podcasts.”) What did I find? A ton of audio and video files from podcasts I deleted ages ago. Some where old episodes from podcasts I still subscribe to, and some were podcasts I don’t subscribe to and I thought I deleted through iTunes.

I proceeded to delete all of these “previously thought to be deleted” files and cleared out 5GB of space! Yes, I said 5gb of space!

So what is the moral of this Macspiration? If you need more hard drive space, check your “Podcasts” folder. You never know what you might find there.

Ubercaster V 1.1
Company: Pleasant Software for the People

Price: $79.99

I’ve been following Pleasant Software for the People’s (no, I’m not making that name up) Ubercaster with great interest for some time. From the very first, the layout for workflow and the potential for what it could accomplish piqued my curiosity and as the betas flowed forth, I was with them every step of the way. Unfortunately each time I was disappointed by what it was actually able to do. I was greeted with crashes and poor quality recording, along with echos from some of the different inputs. Not much of a recommendation right? Well, I’m singing a different tune with the latest version. Before I go on, I’ll get what the program is out of the way.

How We Record Our Weekly Podcast

On February 8, 2007, in How-To, by Tim Robertson

I get quite a bit of email about our weekly podcast and one of the most recent question that listeners have been asking is a technical one: “How do you get your conversations with other people to sound like they’re actually in the same room with you?” Rather than send the same explanation to each person every time I get one of these emails, I thought it would be easier to just write an article and explain how we do it.

First, a little information about the audio gear that we use.

In our main studio, Chad Perry and I use good quality XLR-type microphones. Because these microphones are not USB, and require phantom power to operate, we use the M-Audio MobilePre. The MobilePre plugs into the Macintosh via USB. Our two microphones plug into the MobilePre.

What are these PodCast things?

On January 21, 2005, in Opinion, by Tim Robertson

So you may be asking, what the heck is the deal with these PodCasts you keep seeing here at Actually, it is a combination of a new and old technology, but for those new to it, this article will act as a sort of primer to get you started.

First, a PodCast is sort of like a radio show in that it is all audio. In our case, as it is with all PodCasts, it is a simple MP3 file you listen to. You can either listen to it online in your web browser, in iTunes, or on an MP3 player, such as an iPod. (Hence the name.)

So how is this any different than any of the MP3 radio shows that have been around for a few years now, you may be asking? First and foremost is the distribution method used. Unlike old MP3 internet radio shows, a new technology was created around a year ago that takes advantage of RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feeds. As a newbie, you don’t have to worry about any of that sort of thing, though. You only want to know how you can get the PodCasts to your iPod or iTunes, right?
