    I use your podcast feed for my podcasts episode 44 is in ogg and won’t run on my player. This also happened for episode 40 and a few in the past. Maybe you are not aware of this.

    What happened to your email addresses? I could not find them.

    Hi Rothgar and Charles, et al.
    You wanted feedback: PCs – Maxdata3000, Toshiba M40, Zoostorm 10-270 Netbook, etc. I use PCLOS at present as it more fulfills my needs e.g. WiFi connection, and I prefer its rolling updating method. I like to hear the news and was interested in your comments on LibreOffice. I do hope that one version of OpenOffice will continue. gThumbs works for me with Gimp for more detailed work. Audacity is still a pain in Linux, I just can’t get it to record – works fine in Windows XP and Vista so I don’t think it’s the equipment. VLC preferred for DVDs with SMPlayer for audio. It’s all very well that folk say there’s too many options in Linux, but I have to try them all to find one that works. What must Windows users think of this … Sport? I’m a Brit – I don’t understand NFL, I’m a Rugby Union and Rugby League fan. Keep the theme tune. Tutorials? Why not? I liked the CRON talk. It encourages us all to try. Intro chat on buying houses is fine – it’s a problem wherever you are in the world. Finally – I prefer Linux to Windows, mainly because of the frustration of the antivirus and system update hurdles that I have to leap everytime I use Windows – and it’s so slow …
    Keep up the good work. Thanks and take care.
