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.

  • hpr1328 (2013-09-04) "A Hacker's Perspective On Schizophrenia " by sigflup.
    • Comment 6: Vegewurst on 2019-09-06: "Insightful"

      As someone who's just started working on a general adult psychiatry ward I really appreciated hearing what it was like on the other side of the curtain.

      I will never claim to understand what it's like to have such a condition but I feel like I have a better idea. One thing we are taught is that patients with schizophrenia are more often scared than anything else (before angry, violent, dangerous, manipulative, whatever negative preconception you want to put in) and your podcast has really confirmed that for me!

      Thank you!

  • hpr2881 (2019-08-19) "Automatically split album into tracks in Audacity" by Ken Fallon.
    • Comment 2: Hipstre on 2019-09-01: "2881 - Audacity: Split Album into Tracks"

      Thank you, Ken! Combined with youtube-dl, one can pretty much acquire every single piece of music one has ever wanted in a single night with this. You've sped up my workflow considerably. Also great for breaking podcasts into chunks, if like me, one has a car stereo with an incredibly slow fast-forward/rewind function.
