From Wikipedia:

"A soapbox is a raised platform on which one stands to make an impromptu speech, often about a political subject. The term originates from the days when speakers would elevate themselves by standing on a wooden crate originally used for shipment of soap or other dry goods from a manufacturer to a retail store."

Ok. So.

I had planned on the premier of a new feature today. Called "Rixx's Soapbox" it was intended as an audio feature that I've been thinking about running each Friday in which I would talk about the week's posts, happenings, and whatnots from around the Eve Community.

As you can see, since I am talking about it in the past tense - this did not happen.
Oh yes, I recorded 13 minutes of it. Added some nice music and went to export it when it went ka-blooie and became corrupted.

I've honestly never had that happen to an audio file before.

Maybe next week.

I don't know, I'm still not 100% convinced it is a good idea.


  1. Rixx, I applaud your soapbox... I own one too... even used it here a time or two... =]

    All I have ever asked is that you make sense when yer up there shouting into the crowd... but, you just keep on doing it crazysauce style man and I'll do the same! =]

  2. I'm looking forward to the soapbox boss! Good luck

  3. I actually listen to podcasts and such at work, I would definitely add the Rixx Soapboxx to the list!! Also you should always spell Soapboxx with two X's. That way it's like a theme. Rixx Soapboxx.

  4. Did you talk about Mike Azariah at all? If so, that explains the gremlins.

    1. Oh man! I may have mentioned him... drat! I'll never learn.
