OK, let me clarify this. I was on vacation, hence the delay.
@bryanlunduke has been traveling recently. At the last minute on our previous recording Bryan said that networking issues were going to mean he couldn’t join. Sadly, this happens from time to time with all of us - just the nature of how we record the show.
So, we recorded the show without @bryanlunduke, but were always hoping his connection would mean he could dial in at some point if his connection restored. Sadly this was not to be.
The LibreOffice segment was actually a segment from a few weeks back that we kept in the can (well more specifically, I am an idiot and left it out of the edit), hence we kept it for the show.
Now, this is where it gets nafarious.
@sil, @jeremy, and I thought it could be funny to just not mention @bryanlunduke and see if anyone freaked out about it. This is why I said “gleesome threesome” in the intro and why we deliberately mentioned the three of us a few times in the intro/outro.
Our social engineering seemed to work.
To be quite clear: @bryanlunduke is still very much part of the team, there has been no falling out: just three arseholes playing a joke on the very people that support our show.
…probably another reason to stop listening.
