Podcast #055


Intro, advertising


Spolsky: Alright let's get on with the podcast. Let's start with attendance, somebody thought that was very funny when we did that last week.

Atwood: <laughs>, I'm glad someone thought it was funny.

Spolsky: So I think we should do it every week now, <laughs>, Jeff...

Atwood: Present.

Spolsky: And Joel present, good.

Atwood: Present, check, you have to check.

Spolsky: Check.

Atwood: Check, yes check <laughs>. A little Flight of the Conchords reference for anyone who doesn't know.

Spolsky: Of course. That show's great, and I think they're done, they're not making any more, or are they ?

Atwood: What ever ?

Spolsky: Huh ?

Atwood: Well they were in concert last night in San Francsico I know that.

Spolsky: Cool, well I think they were tired with having to come up with a whole song for every show.

Atwood: Hmm, I hadn't heard that.

Spolsky : Because they'd used up all their songs on the first season, and then they did a second season and it was just exhausting for them to come up with like a new song for every single show. It would be like doing a podcast every week or a blog post.

Atwood: <laughs>


Atwood: The only difference is that we don't actually come up with anything interesting <laughs>

Spolsky: <laughs>

Atwood: I'm sorry listeners; I'm really, really sorry.

Spolsky: This is as good as it's going to get, so if you think it's getting any better than this, just hit that fast-forward button on your podcast thing and go on to Adam Corolla talking about his childhood show.

Atwood: Exactly. So I do have one important bit of Stack Overflow news.

Spolsky: Oh good

Atwood: We are going to launch the Server Fault site tonight.

Spolsky: Woo!

Atwood: I was going to launch it Monday, because I sort of picked a random day on the calendar and - this is a classic geek thing to do, by the way - "So let's just go and launch it this Monday"

Spolsky: Yeah

Atwood: And that happened to be, of course, Memorial Day. I realized as that day got closer; I was like, "Oh right, that's a holiday." <laughs>

Spolsky: Right

Atwood: We probably don't want to launch a site that most people use from work, based on our traffic patterns, on a holiday. That would probably be a bad idea. So I went ahead and moved it to, basically, midnight tonight. So essentially tomorrow. So Server Fault should [go] public.

Spolsky: Yeah

Atwood: Yeah, it's been super fun - Server Fault's been doing great and, you know, I'm happy with the moderators who brought online - there's been a lot of emails; have been sending back and forth about how we're looking at things and how... trying to establish how we do things and what we're doing and things like that, so I want to get that formalized as well also. I'm really pretty happy with the site and I think the only complaint people have is they want more users.

Spolsky: Right, because they're more likely to get answers

Atwood: Well exactly.




Spolsky: There's a wiki! Every week... that people use to type in transcripts for all or part of the show. So if there's something you heard that you like, and you would like to contribute to humanity and to the hearing impaired by writing up the transcript, that happens at the Transcript Wiki which we'll link to from the show notes at, or you can go directly there by going to I don't know how I remember any of this. See you next week!

Atwood: See you next week.
