  3. Glad to have you back!

    Some comments:
    I believe the time station is HD2IOA from Guayaquil, Ecuador ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HD2IOA )

    As for astronomy Northern Virginia, you may want to check out the Northern Virginia Astronomy Club : http://novac.com/
    They also have some maps of the light pollution for the area.

    Lastly, SolderSmoke -- The Book:
    I'd be quite happy to read it that way, because I actually prefer digital versions of books to paper versions.

  6. Boy!. The audio sounds very good to me, but you sound like a totally different person than the one I have been listening to for the last year.

  7. Okay, I am listening now for about 20 minutes using QuickTime Player which allows one to increase the playback speed. I am listening at twice normal speed and your voice seems more like your old self. But, hey, maybe it's all me. Maybe I have not heard SolderSmoke for so long that I have just forgotten what your melodious voice really sounds like.

    P.S. Turned 65 since your last podcast, so maybe the problem is my old ears.
