EP75 - The moral dimension.

Its been a lovely hot day for once in the UK so be prepared for some nakedness at the start of the show! Matt kicks off with a story about OpenSSL being made optional in OpenSSH and both the lads agree it's very good, well it is! Will XP ever die? we hear about Microsoft issuing an emergency patch for Windows XP even though officially they no longer support it. Remember Pete saying Mozilla is evil? Well he gets a chance to say it again with this story about Mozilla and the adoption of DRM support. Oh and by the way the guy's name Pete tries to remember is Chris McAvoy. Why not drop him a line asking him where his morals are now? ;-)

Matt's Cat
If you're squeamish I'd look away now if I was you! Karou has started to bring little gifts home to brighten up the family home.

It began in South Africa
Hands up who remembers the much vaunted Ubuntu on Android? Well it's another project that's fallen to the cost cutting going on at Canonical Towers. Fancy an Orange? Yep the boys talk about the new Ubuntu Orange box but is it Ubuntu's? After clawing over the specifications Pete and Matt are not impressed with the costs or for that matter the supposed usage.

EP74 - Who's next?

Is there no end to Pete's fame? Pete brags about PBS America and one of his tweets. So there's yet another patent troll according to EFF and one that is targeting podcasts! The team are not worried as the troll only seem to be targeting shows with money and since Matt started dissing PayPal the kitty has bugger all in it now. Next up we have a story by that famous news outlet PandoDaily. Yeah we scratched our heads too for a bit. Apparently Indiegogo will no longer protect you from fraud but then a fool and his money is easily parted anyway. Mozilla appoints a Beard as the new CEO. He may not have a beard but having the name Beard is good enough for most geeks. Lets hope this one is squeaky clean? So has anyone heard of this Heartbleed thingy then? Pete and Matt reluctantly spare a few minutes to mull over the subject that everyone else has done to death by talking about some of the submits and fixes.

EP73 - Have you shaken your Caracas?

This is a big show and we've a lot to get through, oh and this episode doesn't end when you think it does. First up lets have a quick chat about the Brendan Eich/Gay marriage storm which did the rounds for about a week. Mozilla announce a pretty cool tool that will allow your apps to run on Android although Matt's not convinced of Pete's "It's wine for Android in't it?" The problem with Microsoft is you can't get at the code! Amazingly MS has released the original code for  MS-DOS v1.1 and Word 1.1a to The Computer History Museum. Admittedly you can't do much with it other than look at it but hey, it'll be cool to see where the PC took off. Yet another round up of 'Where Canonical went wrong' Pete and Matt both agree everything in the article they've said on the show over the last few years. This may look like a small thing but the impact is huge! Finally the UK government does something right and modernises copyright to allow fair usage. "I remember you?" returning to the fold is the Windows Menu. Some of you may remember MS re-instated the start button on their much vaunted Windows 8? Well now the actual menu is set to return. Matt tells us all about Net Neutrality and how the EU is going to level the playing fields. Linus Torvalds tells Kay Sievers he's not allowed to play with the big boys anymore until he cleans his coding skills. Potentially this could have a major impact on Systemd.

Matt's Cat
Karou refuses to crap in the toilet but is more than happy to poop on the floor.

In an attempt to save 27p Canonical announces they are shutting down U1 and their Cloud Music Store. Pete asks "Do these idiots know they have a phone?"

South London Makerspace
In this new section of the show Matt tells us all about his new venture. Actually he tells us twice, at the begging of the show and in this section mainly because he cannot read and didn't even know this bit was here.

EP72 -Dave's dead.

Next time someone says "There's no viruses or Malware on Linux!" tell them to hand in their Linux User badge and leave by the designated exit. Matt tells us how upwards of 25,000 Linux servers are infected and currently offering what's known as 'Drive By Infections' to Windows users. GOG to bring old games to Linux but as per usual Ubuntu is insinuating that it's coming to Ubuntu only. Matt thinks it's a great idea but Pete just takes the piss. Unreal Engine to be Open Sourced! Or is it? Well it is kinda, but only if you pay $19.00 a month, hand over your work and let them take all the credit and monies. E19 lands full Wayland support. The team get all excited at the development of Wayland and can't wait for it to be the default in the next Fedora.

Most of the show is taken up with the awesome feedback. Featuring such celebrities as That bloke from the Archers, The posh Irishman, Our biggest fan who runs some breakfast club or something? And yet another famous person who Pete makes out he knows personally from EasyTag.

Matt's Cat
Karou has clearly been dead boring this episode as Matt has nothing for us so Pete talks about Archie instead.

Mr Twonk III.

Pete has a bottle of Bushmills and Matt has a bottle of Sloe Gin this could get messy! Is Bryan Lunduke more popular than Jesus? Pete winds Matt up with Bryan's begging tweet and talks about his rehabilitation back into the community through some podcast run by some bloke from Ubuntu and his fans. Dell are charging to install Firefox! Pete tells us how he got into a spat about it, apologised because some twonk posted some text that supposedly proved him wrong but ended up withdrawing the apology after discussing it with Matt.

Wikipedia is going downhill fast, not that Pete cares, as Matt tells us that the only content people submit to on there is Pokemon and Female porn star stories which makes Pete blurt out something maybe he should have kept to himself? Did he jump or was he pushed? Matt tells us how news is seeping out that the reason Steve Baller was in effect 'booted upstairs' was because he threw a hissy fit in a board meeting. Last episode we laughed at Apple and the fact their SSL authentication wasn't worth the paper it was printed on. Matt tells us how the GNU SSL was also as secure as wet toilet paper!

"Who the hell is Wil Wheaton?" Pete asks as we hear about the fact Wil is not happy with the direction Ubuntu is going. The team realises it's Mark's train set but why are people staying on the train when it's going to a destination alien to most Open Source advocates?
