Newbie-Do Part 1
Newbie-Do #2: Over Open Sights


  1. Only one comment - when I use "Down Them All" I don;t get any of the "special's", like the Village of the Damned etc. Might wish to add link for that.

    But thanks for setting it up this way! I was doing them 1 at a time and that was a real pain. Now I can start it and come back later and there they will be. ;-)

  2. Thanks for the nudge to get this done, Ed. All episodes and extras are now available.

  3. Well, thanks for adding them, but more importantly thank you for taking the time to do the show!

    FWIW - There are 3 of the mp3 file links I continue to get 404 errors for, so there must actually be a typo or folder name error or something. They are episodes 19, 6 & 7, I'll paste them in case it helps.




  4. Thanks for checking our work, Ed. All fixed.

  5. Thank you for posting them one one page. The episodes with subtitles are helpful reminders to the shows contents. I wish episodes 1 through 18 had them. When can we expect newbie-do 2 or the remake?

  6. Newbie do is great for the newbie I am. Please do post some more !

  7. This comment has been removed by a blog administrator.

  8. get thee to a gunnery - don't forget Mortars have rate for Area Fire.

  9. 'Normal Captured Use penalties apply to the Free French use of the German MMG.'

    ASL S16 bottom of scenario, special rule 2!

  10. Episode 28 404 file not found

  11. Episode 28 link now fixed. Thanks for the heads-up.

  12. Just found your website and podcast(s)! Good Job!
    I have downloaded the first 18 episodes + a couple of later ones. I played the original Squad Leader back in the early 80s. Not sure if my 61 year old gray matter can get around ALL THE RULES!!!

  13. Oh yes it can, and doing so will help to keep our old grey matter YOUNG!

  15. Hey guys, as an fyi, episode 1 isn't being recognized. Producing a fault when trying to download. Aaahh the fun of having a NAS that crashes. Personal opinion, never buy a BufTech NAS.

  16. Hi Joseph. Thanks for writing. We're finding no having downloading or listening to Episode 1. Not sure what you mean about the crashing NAS. We don't use a NAS to deliver content. Our audio files are hosted in the cloud by a streaming service called Podbean. Anyway, please shoot us an email if you continue to have problems.

  17. Thanks guys, it works now. Was getting a scripting error (it would kick out the xml script not the mp3) when trying to download.

    My NAS, a Buffalo Tech one, crashed and died. Normally NAS's can handle a single platter going out and reconstruct itself. But when the power supply board that drives two platters dies, your lost. Appears to have happened a lot, as subsequently Buffalo Tech raised their warranty from 1 year to 3 years. In addition, there are a lot for sale on eBay for parts. Guess what that means. Raising the warranty that high doesn't happen cause they are feeling jolly, its all a risk analysis study.

    Odd thing is my 8TB NAS is still working, but it's the later build 12TB NAS that I bought about three years after that died. Yep, 1 year 3 months, 3 months after the 1 year warrenty and about 6 months short of the expanded warranty offering. /whining end

  18. How many episodes are there where you mention my name? Just kidding... keep up the great work.

  19. says down them all is not compatible with my version og firefox. i have the newest version

  20. Great job with the podcast and congratulations on all of your episodes. Do you happen to know which episodes have interviews with MMP representatives? Do you happen to have an index for what topics are on each episode? A lot of work...
