Summary: Tim, Gordon, and Roy struggle with coughs and connection difficulties and yet manage to produce another episode filled with news and discussion

TODAY'S show covers many topics including the new Linux release, Android, Microsoft's latest departures and failures, and of course Wikileaks. This is the first episode in about a week due to lack of time for the three of us to regroup and record. Our new IRC channel and new official Web site will be announced quite soon. [Update: the show notes are up]
