|February 27, 2005 -- I've made it to Checotah, Oklahoma
where I've stopped to spend the night. I picked this load up at Amarillo,
Texas at a drop yard. The load is going to Atlanta, Georgia. Before my fleet
manager went home Friday afternoon, she sent a message to me saying that
they would likely have me bring it to the Elm Springs, Arkansas yard since
I'm due home for a few days off. I've been out about a month or so -- I've
sort of lost track of how long I've been gone. I'm hoping I don't have to
deliver the load to Atlanta -- I'm ready for a few days off and away from
I've purchased a new domain name and website that will be
called PodcastPromos.Com. I also purchased podcastpromo.com without the "s"
on the end that will point to the same website. My vision is to set up a
website that will function as a podcast promo link exchange where people can
get together and exchange promos to be played in each others shows.
Hopefully I can set this up fairly quickly once I get some time to sit down
and start working on it.
||Another thing I've been looking into is getting a better
microphone for higher-quality audio input. For now I've settled on a
Plantronics USB DSP-500 microphone/headset. A couple of people have told
me that the microphone sounds amazingly good, so we will see. I would
really like to move towards more professional-level equipment, but doing
it from here in the truck introduces several problems. First there's the
problem of trying to power everything from the 300 watt DC to AC power
inverter -- it seems to introduce a lot of noise into microphones.
Secondly, there's the issue of limited space. It becomes a pain if I
have to carry around too much bulky equipment.
