Awesome. Leo is a good guy; I enjoy listening to Security Now! and TWiT podcasts.

I'm glad G4TV brought back Call For Help. I just wish it was on at a later time or I had a TiVo. Gotta work! Sad

I look forward to the longer MacBreaks with Leo. Who is Alex Lindsay?

He's a regular guest on Call For Help .. he's the 3D/Photoshop guy. (he used to work at ILM)

He now runs: Pixel Corp
Some of his volunteers shoot and edit the TWiT vidcasts ...

The name sounded familiar. I thought he was the co-host on CallForHelp. I can never remember that guys name from Canada. Maybe I should check out the TWIT videos. I listen to the podcast every week.

Andy Walker was the co-host of Call For Help (in Canada) ... his web site is cyberwalker.com
He recently left the show, and here's why Crying or Very sad

He has a few podcasts / vidcasts in the works:
Cyberwalker Mondays
Lab Rats!
The Next Big Ping

... and he has a book, "Absolute Beginner's Guide to Security, Spam, Spyware & Viruses

That's too bad. I wish G4 would move or replay the show everyday after 5PM. Heck they don't even replay them over the weekend. I have a screwy work schedule and would love to see more episodes. I sincerely miss the old TechTV days with TSS, Call For Help, and Silicon Spin.

Ahhh. origininal ScreenSavers. Yea, that was a good show. I don't watch G4TV these days, so I can't comment about CFH, but I remember the old CFH with Chris. I found Chris P's podcast the other day and I eagerly downloaded it, but he is one wierd guy. I didn't like the podcast at all, and I unsubscribed Rolling Eyes

If you have broadband, you can download the Call For Help episodes via BitTorrent ... I won't link the site directly, but will tell you a Google search for "Call For Help Tracker" will find it for you! Wink

Thanks for the tip! Wink

I really don't use BT, but that looks like a good way to catch up. Laughing

ba747heavy. I never really liked Chris on TV, but his blog is kind of cool.
