EP70 - Jono's maze of books.

It hasn't been that long since the last show, honestly. That lump of a duffus Pete released EP69 too early that's all. So what's the team found to lie about this time then? The guy's poke fun at The Show That Cannot Be Named and Pete whines that Bad Voltage seem to be permanently spamming him with notifications and then it descends into having a right laugh at poor old Jono Bacon's expense and especially that terrible book he wrote.

WhatsApp? WhatsApp? Facebook has bought WhatsAPP for a whopping $19 Billion but shouldn't someone tell them they already own an IM service? DropBox updates its terms and conditions but Matt is still bemused why Pete put it in calling it a "None story" This story sent to us by rubbish listener John Lewis should probably be titled "So much for security." as we hear that Apple's SSL certificate authentication is not been worth the paper its printed on for years! Oh and by the way here's the link for the test page to try out. Lets hope it fails for you too? Systemd, will this subject ever die? The team discuss the announcement that Ubuntu will ditch all the work it has been doing over the last four years and adopt systemd which makes Pete call Mark Shuttleworth a coward for not taking the chance to go his own way.

EP69 - FOSDEM 2014

You'll be pleased to learn Pete's sound is now acceptable although he needs to learn to not move away from the mic!

We start off with a sad story that someone on the Fedora Devel list has threatened to 'duff up' another member and that the Fedora Board has had to step in with a stern warning. Yay for Satya Nadella who has become the next CEO of Microsoft, apparently one of his main assets is he comes from India?

OK settle down with a brew as Matt now takes over the show to tell us all about his trip to FOSDEM 2014

EP68 - Sniffing BOLD washing powder.

OK OK Pete's sound is still not the best, We promise it will be better next episode. We would like to point out that no animals was in any danger during the recording of this episode! We kick off with the Google Outage even though Pete is convinced it never happened in the UK? Apple has patented how Sapphire glass attaches to devices, nice bit of tongue and groove anyone?

Matt is all excited about FOSDEM so we spend a bit of time talking about all the people he's hoping to meet and what talks he hopes to attend but given Matt's track record we suspect he'll spend most of his time chatting in corridoors.

Karou is desperate for attention after being left on her own for a bit.iting Matt's lap is.

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.

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

Merry Xmas Moggers Mum.

Well that's it for another year folks. Matt and Pete are off to drink eggnog and eat chocolate liqueurs while throwing another reindeer on the fire. We hope you'll enjoy our Christmas special with lots of music and our usual outtakes so don't go thinking its all over when you hear the music.

We hope you and your loved ones have a fantastic time especially our friends who will be celebrating their first Christmas with new additions to the family.
