Well if I let that stop me then I would probably not have done 90%
of the shows I've uploaded. My approach is that while I may not be
an expert, I can still talk about how a n00b can use things like
bash scripts and Python scripts etc. Then I can sit back and wait
for Dave Morriss to correct my scripting mistakes. See? I learn

I'm also not crazy about the idea of extra intro material, but if
I'd known the situation was so dire when I recorded it, I would have
added a little plea to contributors at the beginning of my most
recent couple of episodes.

Sometimes it's easier to record as a team. (I think my very first
episode was with NYbill.) I'd be happy to co-host with new
contributors if that would help at all.
