    Hi Roman,

    it was a great idea to start making podcasts. I appreciate it, mainly because it finally showed me (with help of great podcast at javaposse.com) what's so cool about podcasting.

    Since you're probably also listening to other podcasts, I expect that you're using some iPod like device & some podcasting client application to sychronize your favorite podcast feeds.

    If so, can you please tell us, what equipment & client are you using for listening and what are your feelings about it so far?

    Speaking of software, I'd like to use something java-based (since I use both linux and windows) and I found http://www.jpodder.com/. Screenshots seems nice, but it didn't work for me very well. Hopefully they'll fix the bugs, the application itself looks quite nice and usable.

    P.S.: Sorry for a bit offtopic post (=not directly related to netbeans).. but I think a lot of people like your podcast and would like to use some good stuff to fetch,synchronize&play all your future podcasts ;)

    P.P.S: I discovered your blog just about a week or two ago and it is rapidly becoming my most favourite blog. Keep up such an amazing effort!

    Bye & thanks

    Tomas, I don't have any special hardware except for my new Nokia N70 which is capable of playing mp3s, but I haven't been using it for listening to podcasts yet. As for the software, I was searching for something good for Linux but I haven't found anything yet. When I'm in WinXP I use iTunes, it works quite nicely. But I'm still searching for a good player for Linux and would be greatful for any pointers - so far I just use RSS readers + xmms.

    I am glad you like my blog and my podcasts. If you have ideas what to improve, feedback is always welcome :)

    I listened to several podcasts today on my way to the office and Nokia N70 is good for this. I just need to buy the 1GB memory stick because default 64 MB is just not enough. I actually prefer this over an iPod, it's nice to have everything in one device.

    Hi Roumen, I like the 2nd podcast episode. The microphone issue is resolved and everything sounded really smooth. Well done!

    And thanks for mentioning the Profiler article.

    Meanwhile, about the collaboration piece. If you don't want to use share.java.net then Java Studio Enterprise 8 (free if you register on Sun Developer Network) includes a collaboration runtime. It looks pretty simple to start it - it has an entry in the Start menu on Windows or you can run a shell script on Solaris or Linux. More details are here: http://developers.sun.com/prodtech/javatools/jsenterprise/learning/tutorials/jse7/dvpr_collab1.html (note this tutorial is for JSE 7, but the instructions look correct for JSE 8.)

    Thanks, Gregg! It will only get better :)

    Hi Roumen, have you considered publishing your podcasts to make them availalble via iTunes?

    You can subscibe to my podcast via iTunes at:


    This URL is also accessible by browser. I will include this link with each post here in blog.

    I do not know how to get into the directory of iTunes so that people can find me by searching for Netbeans. Any advice on this is welcome!
