MagentaGate, MacADUK, and macmule.com

Standard

Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the pod  
Not a drive was stirring, not even the JBOD  
Charles in his kerchief, and Marcus in his hat  
Had just settled in for a long Christmas chat. 

James Ridsdale did join them, and Ben Toms too,  
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.

Me again on yet another MacAdmins.org Podcast.
