SEB lurker Melanie wrote in asking what the hell happened to the SEB Podcast I mentioned I was going to do. It’s still something I want to do and am learning about, but we’ve had a small problem: I broke my headset I was going to use to record it.
When we made the move to our new home I somehow lost one of the feet on my computer case and so it’s been sitting in a pathetically lopsided manned ever since. A few days ago I took my headset off and set it on top of the computer case to get up and get a drink. As I got up my knee bumped the case and knocked it over with the headset sliding off first onto the floor and the computer crashing down on top of it. I wouldn’t have thought that would be enough to do any damage, but it was. The right speaker was snapped off and dangling from its wire.
Now I need to find myself another decent headset to use for the podcast and PC gaming. The last one was a Plantronics set that seemed to work pretty well so I’m thinking of trying the GameComPro1 PC Gaming Headsetfrom Plantronics as it looks a little beefer than the set I had previously and has gotten pretty good reviews. The problem, again, is that money is tight right now so it’ll be awhile before I can pick these bad boys up.
So, yes, I do still plan on trying to do a podcast once I figure out what I’m going to do it on, who I’m going to do it with and, most importantly, have a decent headset to do it with.
