I know this has nothing to do with web hosting but it defiantly marks a day in tech history. The wonderful host Leo Laporte from TechTv's "The Screen Savers" will no longer be hosting the show. This is a very sad day in the tech world. (You can blame COMCAST for this.)

More than any time in history mankind faces a crossroads.
One path leads to despair and utter hopelessness, the other to total extinction.
Let us pray that we have the wisdom to choose correctly.
1) I'm smarter than everyone else around me about computers.
2) Started programming in different langs for different reasons.
3) Gave me courage to put up web pages on the world wide web.
4) I started this hosting company with tips and tricks that came out of his mouth.

Leo Laporte was the reason my 80 year old father came to understand what I was talking about in regards to computers. Leo was very charismatic in his delivery of information, and did not speak down to people (although there was always the odd heckle of Windows based systems)
I had tuned into Call For Help a couple of times and when I saw Leo was not hosting, choose to watch something else instead. Leo could hold the viewer and that comes from his background in radio and his aforementioned low key delivery.
Too bad for TechTV as he was one of..if not the...last original member of ZDTV. I assume viewship will decline overall. Although Patrick Norton does a decent job on his end, of co-hosting The Screensavers. But Kevin Rose is no Leo Laporte and maybe TechTV should recruit Steve Wozniak as co-host. He is ALWAYS interesting and has a good sense of humor as well. If not Steve Wozniak, Will Wheaton is another solid choice.
I too will miss watching Leo on both Call for Help and The Screen Savers. However, I feel that tech tv has started going downhill, especially with the advent of Unscrewed. To me, most of the stuff Martin does on that show is trash, and with the whole Playboy / TechTV's Hottest Female Personality thing....they kind of lost me.
I'll still watch The Screen Savers every now and then, but for now, I'll keep watching Discovery/TLC
