In an unseen turn of events, Beth Blakely was out this week with something incredibly nastier than a hangover. However, the show must go on!
For this episode of TR Out Loud, I twisted the arm of a TR colleague to sub in for Beth (yes, you all know him well), and we still give you the goods - including the top discussions, the top posters, and the TR member who won some swag by responding with a great answer to last week's Question of the Week. By the way, I expect to hear from more of you this week, as TR member Colin (aka Hal 9000 and Oh Smeg) poses a brand new Question of the Week!
Oh, and for those of you who are only interested in Beth's ShhhIT list, you won't be disappointed. I was able to retrieve a naughty morsel from her, even though she's sick. Talk about dedication! Listen to the podcast, and then chime in, people!Notes: Top discussion threads:
- TRS-80 CoCo (Cracking open the Radio Shack TRS-80 Color Computer (CoCo))
- Senate violates Constitution...
- Obama's International Socialist Connections
- Poll: Is Firefox more secure than Internet Explorer?
- Installing Oracle on Linux is too difficult
Sorry.... you have to listen to the podcast to get the dirt!Question of the Week: Provided by Hal 9000.
