I Go To The Land Down Under

New Album Art

You might have noticed the new album art here. Thanks to the great Lori Lebeau-Walsh for those. Lori did the FLOSS Weekly, Jumping Monkeys, and Radio Leo album art some time ago and she volunteered to redo all the rest to give it a more consistent look.

The host portraits that the album art is based on are by the amazing Nitrozac from The Joy of Tech. She'll do one for you, too, by the way, for a very reasonable cost.

Playing Catch Up

The network is slowly getting caught up after the holidays with one exception: The Tech Guy shows. The shows that aired while I was on vacation (417, 418, 419, and 420) were pre-recorded and won't be released online. I do have recordings from 421 on and we're putting them up piecemeal - and a little out of order. We should be caught up in the next few days. Thanks for your patience!

TWiT Slowdown Begins

Happy Holidays from TWiT! You may notice some missing shows in the next few weeks (well, except for Security Now, Steve Gibson is an animal). There will be no TWiT this week - I'm on the road, but we'll do two more this year on 12/17 and 12/24. Don't forget the ScottEVest coupon code - good through Christmas. 20% off when you use the coupon code LEO on the SeV site. And make sure to buy lots of Audible books. Have I mentioned that they make wonderful holiday gifts?

TWiT RSS Feed Now Podcast Ready

Drupal master, Gordon Heydon, has been slowly tidying up this site. We're up to the current version of Drupal and a number of internal issues have been fixed. One that may make a difference to you is that the RSS feed for this site now includes proper podcast enclosures, too. That means if you subscribe to

TWiT is Podcast of the Year

The Weblog AwardsThanks all you great listeners, TWiT has won the Podcast of the Year award from the Weblog Awards! Dane and I had a blast at BlogWorld Expo in Las Vegas. I went down to keynote the Podcast Track and to accept the award. I'll post pictures and video soon, and if anyone recorded my speech I'll put that up too!

Weblog Awards

Best Podcast - The 2007 Weblog Awards.jpgI'm not usually one to lobby for votes, but since I'm speaking at BlogWorld Expo, I would appreciate your vote for TWiT as best podcast in the Weblog awards. The awards will be presented Thursday evening at BlogWorld.

net@nite and Windows Weekly Update

Amber and I have decided to take a hiatus with net@nite. Amber's very busy at the moment with her TV shows and Command-N and it's tough for both of us to keep producing the show Sunday nights. We do want to keep working together, though, and are looking at other projects we can put on TWiT.

Meanwhile, I do have sponsorship commitments for the show, and I know we need something covering the web on the network, so I'm looking at ways to keep it going either alone or with a new co-host, and possibly with a change in format. Stay tuned.

Also Windows Weekly will be missing a couple of episodes due to travel. Paul and I will be back with a new show on October 12.

Amber and Leo Appearance

Amber MacArthur and I will be making a personal appearance this week in Vancouver, BC on behalf of Future Shop.

We'll be debating LCD vs Plasma and the Future of Television this Thursday, 27 September, from 11:30a-12:30p at the Futureshop store, 1740 West Broadway in Vancouver. The CBC's Tod Maffin will be moderating (and keeping us from throwing any punches).

Happy Labor Day!

All the TWiTs have been working hard this year so I thought they should take some time off this weekend. As a result there will be no TWiT or net@nite this week. We'll be back with new shows next Sunday though. Have a great long weekend!
