Is it your life's work to make us geeks have 20-odd usable minutes fewer in a day?  (I'll DL and listen to it once I can get to Ty, which seems to be down now)

Seriously though, your work is awesome. Keep it up!

althought I'm becoming a linux veteran, there were still occasional comments which I found interesting - mostly where things had "just worked" and I've never found out why!

in my experience, you learn more about linux when it goes wrong (well, it doesn't go wrong, you break it when playing!) and try and fix it than by simply installing a distro and using it!
