Beep boop - this is a robot. A new show has been posted to TWiT…

What are your thoughts about today’s show? We’d love to hear from you!

The episode posted up to podcast services seem to be the same as 1632? I thought I was going mad - I finished listening to 1632 and went straight onto 1633 and I thought it sounded familiar… Scott Johnson talking about the same thing etc. Though it might be a Pocket Casts issue so went to Apple Podcasts and get the same.

Just went to the video version on and they are the same - the date shown on the clock is the same on both. YouTube version is correct though.


I’m in the middle of listening to 1632 right now, haven’t got to 1633 yet, but I think you’re right. Both shows downloaded by my podcatcher show as the exact same duration 2:14:32 which must mean I have the same file for both.

Hopefully they’ll be able to correct the feed and we can delete our copies of 1633 and re-download the right one. I’ll keep an eye on this topic to see if there’s an update when we get into the working day on US West Coast.

Definitely wrong episode on the Apple Podcasts audio

All the feeds are showing the wrong show for Sunday. :confounded: Ugh sorry. I’ll wake up an editor.


So we’ve updated the feeds, but since most podcast clients think they’ve already downloaded the Sunday episode you’ll probably have to get it manually from I’m very sorry.

Don’t be too hard on 'em Leo. They work hard and usually get it pretty darned good. I’m sure the filenames were pretty close and someone got bleary eyed or distracted.

Well thanks, Sam :sob:


Good advice on the tires, though. I had “all-weather” tires (Continental DWS) on my Fiata last winter. They did reasonably well in light snow for RWD car, but in March we got a late snowstorm and coming back from work around 5AM my car got most of the way home in the terrible unplowed snow conditions, but I ended up sliding around a turn on ice/sleet/snow at very low speeds.

Complete loss of traction, ended up hitting a sign (in front of a state police station, no less… they gave me a ticket, too) and causing a couple thousand dollars in damage to the car. Luckily I was fine, but it’s pretty scary to be out there in snow/ice (obviously better not to be out on road in those conditions if you can help it).

Going to be getting a proper new set of wheels and true winter tires soon. Forgot to weigh down the back, too, which I used to do when I had a Mustang. TireRack was where I was planning to get a tire/wheel package, so good to hear Sam recommend it.

There actually is a current Android phone (one of the people behind it was on All About Android a few months ago) that recently launched with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, the F(x)tec PRO¹.
