Mike, I think you've picked a pretty reasonable end-point for the podcast. And it sounds like you're going to be busy. Congratulations to you and the Mrs. One question and a few requests: Q: Will you continue doing the History of Rome Tours? R: I would hate to have the series end with the disappointing last emperors of the west. R: It would be great to get a series wrap-up episode as a whole, similar to the Q&A one you did earlier. R: It would be awesome to get "what happened next" episodes, preferably one for each of the Western and Eastern empires. A sketch of the history of the Byzantines from the fall of the West to, say, the conquest of Constantinople would be neat. For the West... well, the stories of the successor states, and maybe even the "emperors" of the Holy Roman Empire, are worth some note. Anyway, I hope you take some time to look back at the great work you've done, analyze, and summarize. It's a momentous achievement and I think you have a lot to be proud of. Go out with a bang, not a whimper (or an exile or what have you).

Martin: you nailed my issues with XAuth exactly. See for my micro-take. I'm happy to see But I see the limited value to this system -- reducing the number of "login with..." stickers is a laudable UI improvement. If the name of the protocol was AreYouLoggedInto, it'd make a lot more sense. Incremental integrative steps are a good idea. Important not to overstate their value and burn people out too soon.
