Got a mention on SBN #46 this week also.

SBN being Sound Bite Nation, the podcast that follows NetHeads on SIR on Sunday nights. I sent them a D-Bag of the week suggestion and it looks like they used it on their show, got a couple nice shout outs, always good to help feed the ego 🙂 Kind of took me by surprise on the way into work as I was listening and I heard my twitter handle.. Not a bad way to start the day.  I admit I still get those “They said my name, I’m routerninja! I’m that guy!” moments sometimes. I know, stupid fanboy moment but its neat to me. 🙂

So I called into NetHeads last Sunday.

It was a pretty good experience, I think there was some delay because I dont remember that much dead air and lulls in the conversation, my call starts at about the 41-42 minute mark, goes for about 10-15 minutes, and we cover a lot of ground from games to hockey. It was pretty awesome to be able to talk to Will and Trent, and I think I will have to do it again soon.
