Abe? Ben? Paul? Clive? Who? What? Huh???

I can put up with Clive Robertson not being on 2UE’s middawn shift as I like Paul Makin, and they both do a good job…but what happened to the middawn producer Abe? There was a “Ben” there this morning…I hope Abe was just unwell or taking some time off and will be back soon as I think he is the best middawn producer they’ve had in ages.

Why is it that every time I get used to a middawn producer 2UE change them?

From The Vault: April 18 2005

I completely forgot about this yesterday, it’s the monthly feature where I pull an old article out at random with the help of a random number generator and the post IDs produced by WordPress. This month we’re going almost all the way back to the beginning!

The morning of the first day of the LCA

April 18th, 2005 at 08:19am

To the tune of “The Twelve Days Of Christmas”
“Twas the morning of the first day of the LCA
And Samuel is happy today.
The days of the Linux conference are here
And I live rather near…”
OK OK I’ll stop singing…but it is official, I live 20 minutes away from LCA by foot.
Today I plan on spening most of my day at the Security Miniconf which should be quite good, I might also try and meet up with an old work colleague who is running one of the other miniconfs.

Letter To The Editor: Caz, The Hack and the end of TSSH

Dearest Samuel,

How did one so young become so cynical?

You should properly read Caz’s most recent post. She did not say she was quitting blogging. She said that she and I were both withdrawing from TSSH permanently and handing it over to contributor Tealou, who will run TSSH as a forum from now on. I think Tealou already has the keys to the domain name and is backing up the moving van to shift on in, as it were.

Sadly for those who wish us harm, we will be back elsewhere – in a slightly different form and with a different focus in a short time.

Despite the timing of the post, we are dead serious. You’d be an April Fool not to take us at our word.

Caz has been posting in the past couple of weeks but she and I were both missing a few weeks back while she was laid up in hospital and I was otherwise occupied with the house and the kids. Again, examine the site and have a read before you criticise.

And in fairness, son, when Caz has withdrawn (temporarily) from blogging, she has done so under duress and always with the promise she shall return. Read back to the posts immediately following those death threats last year to confirm the truth of my words if you do not believe me.

As always, love your work. Don’t you go changin’.

Love and kisses,

The Hack.

You mean all I had to do was ask and somebody would send in another letter? Why didn’t anybody tell me that a few weeks ago?

This is your chance to set the agenda on Samuel’s Blog, all you have to do is send a Letter To The Editor to Your letter can be about almost anything, and it can be from any part of the opinion spectrum, as long as there is some point to your letter. I don’t have to agree with your letter, but I am moderating, so the usual no defamation etc rules apply. For more details click here.
