Move along. Nothing to see here. But hopefully something to hear. I’m thinking ahead to a time (possibly as originally scheduled in March) to a time when I’ll be more inclined to use my mouth than my hands for blogging.
Towards that end, I’ve just signed up for CINCH as a way of instantly recording and embedding audiocasts into the blog. I actually called this one in via Google Chat over my Yeti microphone to the Cinchcast.com number they provide that I have added to my G-mail contacts. Let me know if it does not work for you, contents are blahblah — just something to see if it worked. It did. I’ll do better next time.

Perfect, Fred! I would rate the modulation(tone and clarity) at 10 on a scale of 1 to 10. I strongly suggest you consider this option.
Loud and clear, clear, clear. Very impressive. Can’t imagine a better result.
This is so easy. I have the mic by my keyboard 24/7. I click “call a number” in my gmail sidebar and type CINCH and the number is inserted. The call is answered over my external speakers: “record after the beep”. I say my piece (thinking this morning about a winter essay from last year) and minutes later, it is up at cinchcast.com and I can grab the url or the embed code. There are no limits to file size or number. Users may subscribe like one would do for podcasts. Seems like this will be a persistent site, or something like it will survive the relative long-term.
