The passing of FiftyOneFifty

It is with deep sadness we announce that another of our hosts and friends Donald Grier, known to us as FiftyOneFifty, has passed away.

FiftyOneFifty's frat brother Randy Hall has written an lovely piece. The team at Linuxlugcast are preparing our own tribute if you want to contribute an audio file you can email Honkeymagoo or join the show.

Our thoughts go out to his friends and family at this difficult time.

Sorry I missed it

I am listening to this show today, and I am sorry I missed it. But if you look at your up-loads you will see I cranked out 4 more shows over the weekend, so I hope I can be forgiven.

Also, you asked whether the material on my site ( it a transcript. Essentially it is. I always start by writing a page for my site, and then record the show pretty much by reading it. That said, I did ad lib a little bit, but it definitely serves the purpose of being a transcript (with screenshots!).
