Why I can't download the video?

Marcel I Don't see any link to download the video :( I actually download all the videos and passed to my portable device to watch'em. Well I gonna watch anyway on my home. Keep doing the same great job.

re: Why I can't download the video

Hello darwinlinux7,

That's my mistake. I forgot to go back and add the download links. Thanks for keeping me on my toes and for watching.

Marcel is mad

He is stark staring mad!

But keep the videos coming, I can't get any work done until I have listened to your latest crazy offering.

You are mad, but I am sure we'd get along famously if we met ;-)

re: Marcel is mad

Dear Ampers,

I might be stark raving mad here, but I'm guessing that was a compliment. Thanks for watching (which implies you might be stark raving mad [ insert appropriate smiley here ]).

The big Five Oh

Salut le pépère!

Congrats on number fifty.

You still have the vibrancy you did in show #18 and still look younger than Maddog!!

re: The big Five Oh

Thanks for that, Papa Chango. I appreciate the warm congrats. I do want to point out, however, that I am much younger than Maddog! [ insert appropriate smiley here ]
