- More info about Off the Edge, as well a shop where you can obtain the DVD, can be found at www.offtheedge.co.nz. Sadly, the website has been re-designed since this episode was recorded and no longer sports the retro ’90s design that Hayden mentions.
- Solo finally received a local DVD release earlier this year. More info about the various home video versions can be found at NZ Videos, while the disc itself is currently available from Mighty Ape.
