We start the show off with asking the listeners if they rather had a forum or something else instead of the /contribute site. If you have any ideas, write us email!
Lukas reports some problem with our Ogg files not being downloaded correctly in OS X. We cannot reproduce this behaviour (well, we both don’t use OS X for a start) and would be greatful for further hints regarding this. Things definitely look alright from our end.
