EP67 - Let me lick your custard.

Yes they're back! Just when you thought you'd been punished enough Pete and Matt have crashed back onto the airwaves with more mirth and mayhem. In keeping with the #tdtrs tradition Pete's sound quality is not very good. This is because over Christmas he made the move to be totally Linux based at home and yet failed to thoroughly test his recording ability. The reason for the distortion is the muppet had the recording input level way too high.

Did you have a good Christmas? We did. The boys waffle on a bit about what they got and did and Pete finds out that in fact Matt was the secret Santa and vows to get him back. For our first awesome story Matt tells Pete all about FireFox entering into partnership with Panasonic to bring its OS to TV's. Wait, an Open Source company putting their OS on a TV? Is there some vague memory of someone else saying they'd do that? Any hint of Pete being sarcastic through this piece is purely a figment of your imagination.

"That's a sexy blue router you've got there?" Matt tells Pete all about the Linksys WRT1900AC which is the resurrected WRT54G with upgraded hardware and OpenWRT firmware so that all you naughty geeks can hack away till your hearts content. Matt lets Pete enthuse about the latest news that Red Hat has taken CentOS under its wing as Pete prefers to see it as rather than a purchase. Is the business community seeing the CEO vacancy at Microsoft as a poisoned chalice? Matt and Pete poke fun at Steve Ballmer and the fact he's lost a lot of weight yet is still wearing the clothes he had last year.

The MPAA joins W3C! This is potentially a black day? Here's an organisation that has spent it's time enforcing DRM and accusing millions of piracy joining forces with was up until now one of its arch enemies. Does Pete have a point when he says "The best way to destroy something is from within"?

So we, or if you prefer, Pete failed miserably with his Indiegogo campaign to get him to FOSDEM. We would like to thank each and every one of you for your support and interest. For those of you who took the "I was insulted by Pete" perk he says he may try to still insult you as a sort of thank-you but no promises.

Matt's Cat
We hear how Karou is totally unphased travelling in the car and how inviting Matt's lap is.

It began in South Africa

I hate your Blog

Main Topic
Our lickle Matt is now a Company Director! While brandishing his business card and extra special treatment at the bank Matt tells us all about The South London Makerspace he has become heavily involved in.


The forum is down! Matt has no idea when he will fix it, in fact he's not sure he wants to. :-(
