And they talked about Kickstart and Slack and Ubuntu
“Don’t forget MacADUK!” they shouted, over beer,
We gotcha covered, fellas, no need to fear.

No notes this week, just a heartfelt thank you. Each and every person reading this note: we thank you. When we started this on a lark, we had no idea what it would grow to become. More than 100 episodes have passed since then, and you’ve stayed with us, you’ve told friends and colleagues, you’ve written us letters and hit us up on Slack or at conferences, and we’re incredibly grateful to you for helping to make this into an awesome thing we all enjoy.

As you gather with your families and friends this American Thanksgiving, know that we’re thankful for each and every one of you.
