So here it is our annual live recording at Oggcamp as tradition dictates it is released 'as is' (Although Keith has tweaked it a bit) this episode is especially for the swine's that went to listen to that Linux Voice drivel and missed what was far superior entertainment. Hopefully you'll enjoy Pete totally cocking up the opening, if only this was video you would see the look of shock and disbelief on Matt's face.
We really wanted to open the show with David Bowie's I have not been to Oxford town, but we couldn't find any covers or versions that was Creative Commons. :-(
So this is just Matt and Pete chatting to be honest (No change there then?) we wanted to put something out for you to listen to while travelling to Oxford. Matt kicks off by telling us about his visit to BarCamp London and the quaint way they use bits of paper to offer talks. No CampFireManager there then? What's happening then? We look at the OggCamp schedule and decide that the only individual we know is the only person on the planet louder than Pete, Stuart Langridge.
The opening of the show Pete discovers he needs to learn every soap opera in the world as he tells Matt how work has been like an episode of Emmerdale and we also discover he has a 'thing' for girls in white stilettos! Matt tells us about the personal slaves he will have on his holiday and Pete rages with jealousy.
Is Munich about to move back to Microsoft? But with the announcement that Microsoft is to open an office in Munich Pete wonders if he smells a rat. In the same vein we hear about how Microsoft is lobbying the Chilean government to not use open source. Clearly there has been very little Linux news as the systemd argument erupts again. Oh, and by the way Linux has turned 23.
Matt tells us all about his weekend at EMF Camp
Pete opens the show by telling Matt how he was propositioned on G+ after receiving a video call on his phone. "What's in a name?" XMBC announce they are changing their name to Kodi even though they don't own the domain name or twitter account, great move by the marketing department. Apparently it's all to do with not wanting to have the Xbox element anymore? Who cares?
Facebook maps anyone? Facebook it would seem is looking to employ a developer to develop its own OS and is seeking an individual with the skills of Linus Torvalds. The team asks where this is going and is this likely to become an alternative to Google's services only on a much smaller scale. Microsoft has that much money it can afford to lose Billions! Convinced that the MS Surface will be a success if they just lose enough money over it the question is, after losing $1.73 Billion so far is the Surface the new Zune?
City of London cops swoop on evil proxy provider offering illicit connections to 36 banned websites. The question is still "What crime has been committed?" Have you heard of photopedia because we haven't? The guys after looking on the Interwebs lament the loss of a Creative Commons Licensed service providing some quality stock photo's and ask the question "Why couldn't they sell them?"
Karou learns how to turn Matt into the gatekeeper and Pete tells us about Archie's gunky eye.
FrankenPI Dun-dun daa! "Why? What for? and How?" all these and many more questions will partially be answered.

Pete nearly has a heart attack when tactless Matt says "It's no more."
