I’m using an external mic – the Blue Snowball – exact same as the one Drew uses! It definitely sounds a bit muffled though and I think it either has something to do with the room I’m recording in or maybe Drew isn’t using headphones when we’re recording? I dunno. Is that why you ask?

Yeah it is. It’s a great microphone too, I use it for recording aswell. It’s not too much of a problem really as we can still hear what you’re saying, just as you said it’s a bit muffled.

:)

Awseome, I just caught up on episode 2 on this morning’s bus ride.

I love the new Podcast tunes, they’re so much more awesome.

I’ve got something for tommorow, downloading and syncing it to my ipod!

Quick Q for you Jordan, when recording are you using an external or internal mic?

Problem is I only know the basics of Django/Python and would prefer not to spend time learning another language but rather working on the proj if you know what I mean.

It’s only about 35 lines of Python which just screen scrapes a site and parses it as RSS .

Hey Guys,

I hope you’re all rocking on well :)

I need some advice as I’m in a bit of a pickle about what language to choose to develop a web app I’m developing.

Basically the app will be parsing RSS , screen scraping websites, and have manual user input with a Simple API connected to an iPhone app and will be posting all this data to twitter, facebook and to the website front end. There will be a front end to the site which will display the info, and of course a back end to handle different things.

What I’m not sure about is what to develop it with – Ruby or PHP ? I’ve already got a small existing example written in Python that I will need to port over (Written by a mate).

(PHP would be done in a MVC format)

In your experiences, and from your knowledge which language – Ruby or PHP – would be best applied to the project? Hopefully I can pick one that will allow me to crunch down on programming time, but buff up the features (If that makes sense?)

Cheers!

Check the .htaccess rewrite base is set to the correct location.

Have you checked the payment method status?

I’m only going off the top of my head, but you can edit it via the settings.

Maybe set it to pending or something.

Also, are you playing with the PP sandbox or a live payment?

To be quite honest, I think Inspired was the wrong term for Jeffery to use as it’s rather broad. Although, What he should’ve used… well, That’s something I’m not so sure about. Maybe something like Similar..

You can be inspired, but still, not copy other templates, if that makes sense?

All in all, What I’m saying is take inspiration from some of the great authors here, but take the ideas you’ve gathered and make it into something that is your own, unique and not necessarily a similar copy in some way, shape or form.

When you take a good, long, hard look from a 3rd person perspective here at the market places at the nearly 46,000 items you start to find some flow in repetition and commonality appearing among the files – in particular Themeforest.

What we need to understand is not that they are rejecting inspired themes, but Envato and the Whole Marketplace Team are trying to bring more Unique files to the community – Of course with any business decision it is going to affect your customers, and with it hopefully being the right decision – you will always tick some customers off, although in the end the only benefit is to everyone. I mean, Authors become more creative and the more innovative the template is means more $$$. Buyers find really great files, something not found elsewhere and something that stands out.

Looking back on some top selling themes – you realise that when they came about they were new, fresh and had something to offer that nothing else did.

(I write down my ideas in what ever order i think of them, sorry if they’re a bit everywhere).

Take for example Google, Do you think if they released their search engine that was basically the same as Yahoo – manually entered & slow – that they would be the multi billion dollar company they are today? No, they would not be – with innovation, further development and refinement they have become Numero Uno in the search industry, and if you ask people about searching the first thing they say is Google.

This is exactly what Envato are trying to bring about in their authors, All in all, We should be grateful as not only does it mean we build better stuff here, but it affects us in every other way – it assists in our Full-Time work, Education, Social Life, etc.

I hope my view can be helpful to some of you in some way :)

Why don’t you opt out of exclusivity, then you can sell it from two points.

From a business perspective, it has it’s advantages and disadvantages (e.g support, but if you manage it well, It’s fine) but still you’re open to double income from multiple sources.

Hmm, $100. I tell you it’s tempting, it really is. I could probably get myself a new PS3 game, although for the intricate pixel pushing hours and the love, hardship and tears that either myself or any designer here would put into it – it’s just not with the $100.

Sure you might find someone that’ll do it for $100, But “you get what you pay for.”

If you were to post more details about your project publically – including your budget and time frame you might receive a different response, although if you are after something for $100 in < a week then you won’t get something of high quality.

Cheers!
