Atwood: Hi Joel!

Spolsky: Hey Jeff!

Atwood: It's time for another glorious edition of our podcast.

Spolsky: The twenty-ninth.

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.

Spolsky: Right. Also, last week I was a little too hyper so this week so this week I'm going to be depressed and you be hyper, okay? Thanks.

Atwood: Well I think you were excited about- I thought about that, I'm guessing you were excited about the election. I dunno.

Spolsky: But it wasn't over yet.

Atwood: That was my guess. Oh well, that's true.

Spolsky: But it hadn't happened.

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.

Spolsky: That's nice. You be enthusiastic this week. I'll be depressed.

Atwood: *laughs* Are you really depressed?

Spolsky: No.

Atwood: Good. Just, I was a little worried.

Spolsky: *chuckles*

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.

Spolsky: I think we should do- here's what we should do. Every episode should have a couple of questions, a couple of things from the website. Is there any news for the website by the way?

Atwood: No, it's been really slow. I want to talk to about that.

Spolsky: Uh, all right, go ahead. It's slow?

Atwood: So, it's been really slow because, well, a couple of reasons.

Spolsky: You mean the actual development of the website, not the actual what's going on on the website?

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-

Spolsky: Wherever I go, there I am.

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-

Spolsky: Ah, and the new video cards came out!

Atwood: Edit me!

Spolsky: Edit me!
