Posted by John on July 20 2004,01:39I am going to be on The Linux Show tomorrow night. This is going to be a stretch for me because I'm a bit interviewed and I've never done a live interview before. Anyway, I'd appreciate it of you all could listen to the show and join the IRC channel. Maybe you can help me out if I get stuck :-).

Posted by SaidinUnleashed on July 20 2004,23:38i hope i can muster the bandwidth to listen...
Posted by mikshaw on July 20 2004,23:48I'm on dialup, and it's coming through without much trouble....no idea how long this intermission will last, though. The music doesn't suck, but that's not why I'm listening =o)
Posted by John on July 21 2004,00:54Show is about to begin at the top of the hour..
Posted by ke4nt1 on July 21 2004,01:24Barely made it home in time...
Geez......irc? it's been years...
Posted by ke4nt1 on July 21 2004,02:22....After the 5 min crash course i nIRC ...whew.. I made it..
The interview was great, John..
Very high energy on the irc channel
So many DSL users there supporting your effort...
It looked like a DSL banner advertisement for about 10 minutes on the IRC !
I personally saw a ton of users jumpin' for joy to get the word out.
It was a GREAT 10 minutes of fame.
I thought the "Linux Show" staff and crowd was very warm and receptive.
Only good things to say about DSL... and for good reason
Lots of good info, explored the new items, upcoming additions...
You did good, .... real good...
Backpats and Kudos.......
.....and honorable mention goes to cbagger01 who gave everyone on IRC
a 10 min crash course in DSL 101 skills...
That got things going!! Good Work !

...and who was that "arne" character that used SaidenUnleashed's nick to give out John's email ??
Posted by John on July 21 2004,02:40Anyone have the IRC transcript?
I would love to read through it. I only got part of it.
Posted by John on July 21 2004,02:47http://www.thelinuxshow.com/cgi-bin/irctoday got it!
Posted by SaidinUnleashed on July 21 2004,04:22someone used my name to give out Johns email. that dirty bastard.
makes me angry.
although, for the 4 minutes i was on there i did learn a place to buy 50mb cds ^_^
and i gotta d/l the whole show from today so i can listen from the beginning.
EDIT: actually read the transcript of the IRC and it turns out Arne was telling me to send John an email after i make a way to boot DSL over a network. Like I didn't know that already...
Posted by John on July 21 2004,05:51I just wanted to thank Ke4nt, nmy_MGALUG, SaidinUnleashed, and cbagger01 for helping out in the IRC channel. you guys added a lot of value to the interview.

Someone please make the a copy of the log downloadable,
or upload it to me...A Great time had by all.. 10 min of insanity !
Posted by libretto on July 22 2004,18:43Havent had a chance to listen to the whole show yet (onyl heard about 10 mins so far). But kudos to John for the excellent interview.
Anyway keep up the good work!
Posted by melange8272 on July 23 2004,18:45Damn I missed it!
I did get to listen to the archived show and was pretty impressed with the way that you fielded the questions and explained DSL and what makes it unique..
I also have a heads up to look out for 0.7.3!!!!!!
Just as an aside - I took the roachiest, oldest machine that we have in the office (P166) and am now using it to rdesktop back to the lab (where my laptop is).. My biggest giggle as of late is using my machine to field the "MY COMPUTER IS SOO SLOOOW" complaints from the engineers.. I love it.
Posted by ico2 on Aug. 12 2004,10:29great interview, prehaps you should go on an internet radio station listened to by windows users and tell them what their missing
