It's a very sad thing - R.I.P. Call For Help
I read The Laporte Report (Leo Laporte of TechTV's blog) frequently - even more often than normal recently because of the TechTV/G4 merger. Sadly, Leo reported today that they have officially filmed the last Call For Help, which will air Friday. I'll admit that I didn't watch Call For Help religiously till Leo was the host - Chris Perillo was cool and all, but not my favorite host. I like Leo, he was the main reason I watched Screen Savers. So I began watching more frequently once he moved to Call For Help, and he put on a good show. I'm sure they helped a lot of newbies - and probably even some experienced users like me. I wish Leo the best in whatever he does, and am somewhat heartened to see that he agreed to keep doing the little 90 second bits he does on Screen Savers. And hey - maybe some other channel WILL pick up CFH - it could happen (keeping my fingers crossed...)!
