Fully enjoyed this episode.
For future …I would like to know more about the status of printer drivers and a way to add a printer no matter how arcane the printer ( like the evil empire’s flagship) Can we write something that will streamline the process, thusly side stepping license issues. Same for laptop wireless cards. We will never truely ride the big wave in the mainstream if we don’t solve some of these seemingly minor announces. Or does this come under the heading of the end-user pacification i.e….too minor to care about. If we make it too easy it might just be dismissed from “Geek Territory”.
Thanks Arron for another job well done, and your often overlooked sound crew also who seems to have gone unnamed. ( and no this is not your mom)
