I've not done too much recording lately as I have been really busy getting a lot of the documentation for the website ready. I have finally got a name I am happy with and have registered it, but if you are reading this then you already know what the name is :-). The website is still pretty much on track for a release around the middle of 2009. (How did I do, did I get it up and running on time?) Anyway Anna and I went for a long walk tonight to walk off dessert, and on the way back the big show tent near our apartment was creaking in the wind. It has giant cables that tie down the tent and the wind was strong enough to be constantly pulling on the cable tension causing heaps of noise. I got out the R09 to have it immediately shut down from flat batteries. THIS is why I carry spares. 3 minutes later I was recording a good selection of cable creaks and groans. I have heard these cables making nose before, but tonight was the best example I have heard so far so I was glad to be able to grab it, and very glad to be carrying spare batteries.
