Over to you…

For those of you who didn't hear our live show on Purple Radio earlier today, you missed out! After 3 weeks, we finally came to blows on the Mac vs. PC debate - it got rather heated! Due to Seb being snowed under in C# coding this week, the podcast won't be available until Friday - can you wait that long?!

Now we've done a few episodes, we've got a fairly good idea what works and what doesn't - but we want to base the show around what you want to hear. I've added a poll system onto the website, where you can vote on what you want us to talk about on future shows. If you've got any ideas that aren't included in the poll, use the 'Get in touch' link and tell us through that.

Look forward to hearing from you - and see you all next week!
