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.

Enjoyed it, sounded great

Thanks for the podcast. I learned a lot. These protocols are fascinating, because to the end user, a few bytes here or there seem to be insignificant. But across the entire network, a few bytes here or there can add up to millions of dollars.

Oh, and the audio is great.

audio quality

Take it from someone who records shows on their mobile phone: Your audio quality is great. :-)
