That plus your questions answered. Enjoy!
John and Dave dig into the mailbag once again for you, dear listener, and answer your questions. Didn't get your question answered? It's because you didn't ask. Your geeks don't bite... just send in a question and they'll take care of you!

Additionally, they talk through a few other, deep-geek topics, like getting geeky about storing photos. You're not going to want to miss this one! Download today (it's free!) and enjoy.
