Atwood: Hi Joel!
Spolsky: Hey Jeff!
Atwood: It's time for another glorious edition of our podcast.
Atwood: Yes, I think for next episode we'll do the guest thing again. Joel and I were talking about bringing other people in but we wanna not do it too often. We don't wanna turn it into like a comedy skit show.
Atwood: Well I think you were excited about- I thought about that, I'm guessing you were excited about the election. I dunno.
Atwood: That was my guess. Oh well, that's true.
Atwood: It was just- it was just a theory. I'm like Quincy. I have theories. I dunno how, y'know, good any of them are. That was my theory. But no, excited Joel was good. Enthusiasm is always welcome. I'm not going to frown on enthusiasm. That's kind of uncool.
Atwood: *laughs* Are you really depressed?
Atwood: Good. Just, I was a little worried.
Atwood: Yeah, so we're going to do some questions this episode. You've got some questions lined up. I feel bad because we haven't gotten any questions in like weeks.
Atwood: No, it's been really slow. I want to talk to about that.
Atwood: So, it's been really slow because, well, a couple of reasons.
Atwood: No no no the website is doing great. In terms of people coming to the website and the traffic it's actually higher now than launch. Significantly higher. So the website's doing great and I keep encountering people referencing the website. Like I'll just click through someone's blog and they'll have a new trick about Stack Overflow, or- it's actually a little eerie. Like wherever I go, like there's Stack Overflow. So-
Atwood: Yeah, exactly, it's really catching on which is obviously great. That's the whole point of it. The more people that use it, the better it gets kind of thing. So I'm very much for that. But in terms of actual development on the website there's a couple of things that have happened. One is that Jeff Daugas is moving into a new house about to have a baby, like, any day now. So he's pretty much not able to do much. And then as for me, I actually just posted about this on my blog. It's- the difficulty for me is that this is game season. I'm a long-time PC gamer and-
Atwood: Well, the new video cards came out-
Atwood: Well that's been out for a while actually but the big titles came out, particularly Fallout 3, which was really huge and also, it turned out to be, like, incredibly addictive, like, I could not stop-
Atwood: It's available on all major platforms, well, by major I mean, like, Play Station 3, and XBox, and all modern platforms, so-
Atwood: No, I played it on PC.
Atwood: Cos I'm more of a PC gamer, umm, but a little bit of trivi there and I actually linked to this in my blog post where I talked about my, my video card addiction umm, cos it's a sort of, you know, synergy between the games and the video cards that sort of makes is so addictive. It's not, like, I just like having a video card. It's like, I like having a video card and playing these really amazing, awesome new games on it. But our wedding pre-invitations, not our actual invitations, actually used some Fallout art. [chuckles]. And that's a measure of how cool my wife is, that she actually signed off on that.-
