Posted by: Jeremy Reimer on Sat Sep 20 17:00:00 2008.

We’re back! In this episode we start out with a shoutout to all our listeners of the last podcast! Individually! By name! We then move on to discussing this week’s tech news: Microsoft’s ads are awful, AmigaOS 4.1 is released, six-core Intel CPUs are out. Then we sidetrack into computing history and devolve into general silliness. Devolve?

Here is a list of the URLs that we talk about in the show:
