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.

Great show. We need more on this subject

I enjoyed this show a lot. Thanks for talking about pens, ink and paper. I think we need more shows on these subjects.

Maybe there are more enthusiasts in the HPR community who'd like to contribute :-)
