    AP23 Audio/video review

    This is my second attempt at doing an AAR verbally.
    Let me know if I should continue this. I hate the sound of my own voice...well not really!

    Dig your accent, Vinnie! Wish the image size and resolution could be a bit greater, and you could also turn up your mic volume a tad. Nice work, please soldier on!

    Please do continue, looking forward to seeing more.

    As George commented, if possible it would be nice if the map image filled up the screen space and were of higher resolution.

    Very interesting Vinnie. Thanks for the post! I love it when someone takes a 'low tech' game like ASL and brings 'high tech' into it. :-)

    Thank you for that interesting idea on AAR presentation. Reading allows one to skim; can't really do that on an audio presentation. Did you read from a prepared document? I noticed a few silent pauses that lead me to believe that you did not. Was the report meant to stop after turn one?

    Just thought of something. Vinnie, do you listen to The Two Half-Squads (http://www.the2halfsquads.com/)? Besides their main show, they have what are effectively AARs that are audio as well. In short, each player comments on their setup and then there are a few more 'comment sessions' as the game progresses; but not necessarily one after each turn. Makes decent listening in the car.

    IMHO, the audio format is neat and I personally would (and do) listen to them. But the print version is cool as well and to be honest, I read AARs more often then I listen to them. That being said, I would still encourage you to do audio ones as well. :-)

    I was doing it on the hoof as it were. Need to get better at this.

    Don't listen to the half squads that much as my time to do so would really cut into family time. I need to catch up on them on the drive into work.
