Geeks & Beats Episode 18 Now Available (Show Notes, Too)

Boy, it’s hot.  My office windows face southwest so I get blazing sunshine from about 11am until…well, until I can’t take it anymore.  And no matter how much I water the ficus tree that I have blocking the windows, it keeps going “Are you kdding me, man?  Can’t you see my leaves are burning up?”

Meanwhile, there’s a couple of guys pushing a heavy cart around the neighbourhood offering to seal asphalt driveways with that oily guck.  If you’re feeling hot and miserable today, spare a thought for them.

I realized that after Michael and I finished this week’s podcast, neither one of us had read the standaard disclaimer.  So here it is:

    With how hot it is over there … just think, In a northern suburb of Melbourne Victoria (Australia) I have been scraping ice off of my windscreen each morning for the past few weeks. Reminds me of the good old days back at home.
