The end of an era.  A few bad apples had to spoil it for the rest of us.
 
The last live episode of FLOSS Weekly is taping today at 8:30am Pacific Time.  Join +Randal L. Schwartz and +Dan Lynch in the chat room at http://live.twit.tv/ while they interview Andrew Dixon, Gert Franz - Lucee (http://lucee.org).

No, the show's not being cancelled, but the livestreaming/livechatting  of all TWiT shows is being terminated as of June 1.  We'll still be taping a show every Wednesday morning, but you won't see our results until Wednesday afternoon.

It's been an amazing run.

As we were commenting during today's last live chat, I got a lot of my questions for the guest from the chat room.  That will be sorely missed, and perhaps reduce the quality of the show somewhat, and that will be sad.

I just got a letter from Amtrak:

"A MESSAGE FROM PRESIDENT AND CEO JOE BOARDMAN ON TRAIN 188"

I'm pretty sure he wasn't on that train.

Apple’s CEO says he’s been dreaming of unveiling a gizmo like the one in the comic strip since he was a kid. This is the true story of the unknown inventor who created Dick’s watch.

Both programs are about to enter their fifth decades. Both programs are text editors, for inputting and editing code, data...

Duolingo is adding Klingon for English speakers!  Maybe today is not a good day to die! #klingon   #startrek   #duolingo  
Learn languages completely free, without ads or hidden charges. It's fun, easy, and scientifically proven.

Introduction
Just another Perl/Smalltalk hacker,
Bragging rights
Literally "Wrote the Book" on Perl. Many of them, in fact. Some argue that the interactive web wouldn't have existed as early had it not been for Perl's deployment, and from there we get e-commerce and www on the side of a bus. Thus, I claim at least some responsibility for this whole web thing.

Skills
Explaining complex things simply. Making things go faster. Being a good first lieutenant.
