EP94 – I’ll sleep with you only in a Yurt.

So as you’d expect we kick off with what we’ve both been doing, how Pete is now able to take up one seat on an aeroplane rather than the three he used to need. Matt tells us how his social life has “Really taken off” since he’s stopped rushing home to record.

You thought OggCamp was no more? Well, apparently not. A secret team has been working away in some darkened shed, possibly in Surrey? And the rumours are that 2017 could see the return of the much loved Linux Community event. We discuss potential locations, Pete insults the Scots, Matt prays to the rain gods that camping is on the cards while the world celebrates that Pete might not attend. Gasp!

Never mind “Year of the Linux desktop” Matt definitely thinks it’s the year of the Linux gaming support. We talk about Steam and the games we’ve purchased from there. Matt’s favourite Humble Bundle while Pete moans that 0.a.d. is still Alpha.

Announcements
Matt is going to FOSDEM so bring some extra money because he’ll expect everyone to buy him a drink.

This episode, as you’d expect, hasn’t the best audio quality. After spending time setting everything up, checking sound quality, at the end of the recording session Pete discovered he’d not plugged in the USB from his mixer! #facepalm luckily his webcam had picked up his voice but more importantly the second tier of redundancy was built in with the implementation of Skype Call Recorder so Pete’s voice is from the Skype call while the richer sound of Matt is from his local recording.

EP93 – Touch my scar!

OggCamp is nearly upon us so the discussion turns to what it’s about, what you can expect and other similar events you could attend.

We actually have some feedback, true it’s a few months out of date, but hey, beggars can’t be choosers.

Matt tells us about and event he’s planning with GLLUG, but he has no idea where or when. To make it even more interesting, the GLLUG site is broken. LOL

Clearly being away proves too much as the show winds down to both Matt and Pete losing the plot (As per usual).

EP91 -A picture of my bleeding nutsack.

First up Pete gives a shout out to Peter Robinson for fixing his webcam and warns him not to visit the 14th century!

Microsoft Open Sources .NET but the License looks either a bit dodgy or not worth the paper it’s printed on?

So it’s not very Linuxy, but Pete is really taken with Detroit Soup a movement that awards Micro-grants to creative projects. People gather and pay a minimum $5.00 entrance fee (You can pay more if you like.) hopefuls give a presentation as to why they should get the micro-grant and you get some food while listening. At the end you all vote on who should get the money in the bucket. Simple.

EP90 – The night of the terrible puns.

You thought they were dead? You thought you’d heard the last of them, but yes, SCO is back and set to ruffle IBM’s feathers all over again with their reactivated $5 Billion lawsuits.

If you can’t beat them lock them out! Microsoft appears to be on course to implement their plan to stop anyone putting what they want on a PC or Laptop with Secure Boot scheduled to be implemented on Windows 10.

‚ôę ‚ô™ “Happy birthday to you………..” ‚ô¨ ‚ô© The GNU Manifesto turns 30! If you didn’t know that, don’t worry. Clearly, most of the Internet are unaware too.

“All crimes begin with a thought. So, if you control thought, you can control crime.” — Crimethink George Orwell 1984
When does an online fantasy cross the line into a criminal conspiracy? That‚Äôs the issue the Second Circuit Court of Appeals is currently weighing in¬†United States v. Gilberto Valle,¬†the so-called ‚Äúcannibal cop‚ÄĚ case.

OpenSSL patched a ‚Äúhigh‚ÄĚ severity flaw as part of a patch batch on Thursday that turned out to be nowhere near as scary as widely feared.

EP89 – An evening of going of on a tangent.

The only news story you’ll hear¬†the team discuss is the BBC dropping WMA due to licensing costs and switching to more open MPEG-DASH.

We then went on to discuss Lenovo making your newly purchased equipment vulnerable with ‘superfish‘ the discussion moved on to the NoSQL injection vulnerability of 40,000 MongoDB databases. Linus announces Linux 4.0 this was a really good discussion, honestly. ūüôā

We save the best for last. The headline was that Mark Shuttleworth admitted Unity was a mistake, but after some discussion, we admit that’s not really what he was saying.

South London Makerspace
Now, this is possibly the biggest shame of the whole show, if only you could have heard Pete tearing Matt a new arsehole during this section for saying that he had no right to claim any kudos seeing as he hadn’t attended much lately. Anyway, the great news is the GLA (Greater London Authority) has granted the Makerspace ¬£20,000.00!

EP88 – Crunch goes Bang!

RaspberryPi 2 announced but can you, in fact, get more bang for your buck with the plethora of devices out there? The guy’s muse that the Raspberry Pi project seems to be moving away from its original reason for coming to the market.

Main Topic
Philip Newborough has announced the end of CrunchBang we did try to blackmail him onto the show, but clearly, he was holding out for a better offer. ūüėÄ

Huzzah! Finally a phone! While Matt and Pete are chuffed to bits that Canonical finally listened to #tdtrs and got some stock phones they’re less than impressed with what you actually get in the box.

EP86 – Merry Linux Christmas

Just what has Pete got in his sack? And how many times can Matt squeeze “Linux!” into this episode? Rather than giving you a load of outtakes the team has decided to do a semi-normal show¬†but with some surprises thrown in. First up are you ready for Christmas? We hear about how Matt hardly has room for a piece of A4 paper in his multi-million pound flat “Nothing big for pity’s sake!”

So the only opening story for discussion is Revisiting open source social networking alternatives which Matt seems to think Pete will be interested in? He’s a G+ fanboy you young impressionable fool

EP85 – People Trafficking

Matt tells us how a 5-year-old has passed Microsoft’s MCP exam and we mull over whether the exam is too easy, the lad was coached till the answers were burnt on his brain or maybe he’s just a clever bugger.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll have heard about the first crowd-funded Open Source Tablet. Matt is not overly impressed and says that by the time you get your grubby hands on one the hardware will be out of date. Pete meanwhile tries to impress Matt with the comparison chart.

Mozilla switches to Yahoo for default search in the US, duckduckgo search option and has 90% funding for last year from Google but does anyone really care what search engine Mozilla uses?
