Am I right in thinking that the download link is missing? :)

No, it's in the enclosure. We stopped linking the title directly to the file, but I've added it back in since it's obviously confusing people ;-)

We're also putting together an MP3 feed for those that can't handle m4a, but in the meantime you can download an MP3 version here.

Guys - nice podcast. But I did note that someone commented that there aren't any java compilers written in java - but AFAIK all of them in wide use have been for a long time (it is probably the most important thing you should do to prove a language - if it can't compile itself then..). FYI this is common with most languages - even things like scala compile themselves. Erlang compiler I am not sure about???

The runtimes themselves - that may be different (80% of the JDK is java - hotspot is still mostly C++ though).
