    Yes to both questions. I just upgraded the WordPress theme to the 2.0 version which changed the look of the comments. As for the show notes… I have always used OmniOutliner Pro. It’s awesome.

    The Endianness comment is actually quite funny. The Empire that was divided was called “Liliput” The Liliputians were very tiny people. Could it be that they coined the term “Big/Little Endian” for bytes because they were “little” pieces of imformation just like the Liliputians? It’s nice to know the early computer developers had class.

    The actor playing the PC is actually an author. John Hodgman wrote [i]The Areas of My Expertise[/i] and it is hilarious. My sister gave it to me and I loved it.
