v2.0

Well here it is folks the fabled episode 55, after a first attempt to record the show and the imbecile Pete not actually recording two hours of material the team had to sit down and record it all over again, so you'd better enjoy it!

Matt tells us all of about the PS4 and how it runs FreeBSD which gives Pete a chance to tell us his famous BSD joke. Next up the team discuss proper programming for schoolkids and how currently there is little scope for exposure in most schools to anything other than the standard Microsoft office applications.

How often do you see the message "This material is not available in your country"? An ISP in New Zealand is offering a service called 'global mode' which enables users to view location restricted material. "Where's my shortcut gone?" Red Hat has announced that it will be using Gnome Shell classic for its RHEL7 release.

For our main topic Matt tells us how WC3 seems to think that DRM is good for the web which ends up getting Pete's feathers slightly ruffled.

Kevin grenade sent us a feedback e-mail about some software he is developing and the issues he is having with the associated kickstarter project which leads to Pete completely flipping his lid and offering to take on all-comers.

Twitter toppled my regime.

So dear listeners this episode should really be called the jinxed episode as we hear how the original date for recording fell through due to technical issues and after rescheduling the recording for another night Pete yet again experienced some hardware failures

It would seem that TSTWNBN has been experiencing some Spam in there are RSS feed? This is what happens when you mess with the Dick Turpin, that'll teach you to start a fake argument just to get some publicity.
Moving swiftly on the team ask the question "How do you gauge marketshare?" With this story about android and its dominance of the mobile phone market place.

"Could all the old stuff be lost for ever?" Matt tells us how some of the original documentation held on PCs, servers and Internet services could possibly be undecipherable to future generations due to ever-changing standards and formats. Is open standards the answer or should Google just take Pete advice and upgrade the Internet?

Stop saying I'm horrible! The Turkish prime minister wishes that Twitter would disappear up its own backside as it keeps allowing people to say horrid things about him? The boys discuss the merits and pitfalls of twitter is a social force.
Stop using those resource hungry browsers, use Internet explorer, you know it makes sense? Matt tells us all about a study that has been made (No bias of course?) that supposedly demonstrates that IE uses significantly less system resources and could potentially save you a whopping 10p!

Finally for this section Matt tells us all about Wayland, well actually he doesn't. Given that neither Matt or Pete has actually read this story and unsually for them, they decide that perhaps it would be best if they don't talk about it given they don't actually know what is in the article. Bit unusual for these two don't you think?

Archie Woof, woof
Just make sure you do the manual intervention crap before you update that's all we're saying.

It began in South Africa
Given that every man and his dog has talked about bug #1 the guys didn't really want to talk about this but hey, why pass up an opportunity to have a little dig?

Mary Mary quite contrary how does your garden grow? The team start off by telling us all about the glorious sun and their garden activities "what is this, gardeners question time?" As a great segue Matt tells us all about the walled garden competition that Google has joined by dropping XMPP and working on its own IM protocol.

"That's not me that's someone else!" And Irish judge orders the Internet to take down a YouTube video that wrongfully identified a man for fare dodging. However Pete points out that this might not be as crazy as it sounds when he tells Matt all about the Ruth Jeffery's case. We really should learn to put Ubuntu related stuff in the "It began in South Africa" section. The team tell us all about Canonical, yet again, talk about changing their default browser from Firefox to Chromium.

Matt and Pete's favourite community personality, NOT, Simon Phipps is next up as the team discuss his comments on the WebM license. Be warned, the boys are not big fans of uncle Simon.

Archie Woof, woof
So Pete starts off by telling us that there is nothing in Archie Woof Woof this episode then proceeds to tell us all about his Cinnarch/Antergos merge while Matt tells us how he is unhappy with his Manjaro install.

It began in South Africa
Pete just can't resist picking holes in the interview Mark Shuttleworth held via IRC with the OMGUbuntu team. However Matt believes that as usual Pete is reading too much into things? Make up your own minds.

Seven thousand elephants.

In typical English style the team kick off this episode by discussing the cold and grey weather outside. Yet again the boys are smug that there are no corrections from the last episode.

We kick off by discussing Microsoft Open Technologies Inc and their first year of contributing to free software. The guys struggle to find anything tangible that Microsoft has actually done but Pete lays his cards on the table and begs Microsoft to actually do something. We also hear how an anonymous MS developer has written a pretty revealing insight into why development of their kernel is so slow and Matt tries to discuss the "Microsoft's most profitable OS that's not even theirs." Android patents deal but Pete says he's heard it all before and can't be bothered with it.

"Pirating is theft you swine" Matt tells us about an interesting survey that maintains that for 10% of pirated material there is a 300% increase in legitimate purchases. The guys discuss the very fact that the Internet provides the ability to view what you want when you want and that pirating, in a lot of cases, can lead to people purchasing the DVD, books or merchandise for that downloaded show.

Pete proves that he is a moron and can't even read by introducing this item as co-funding, Matt tries to tell the old fart "you need to put your glasses on Pete, there's an r in there!" this item is in fact about a crowd funding project on indiegogo for purchasing a whole bunch of wikireaders to supply to, hopefully, new world students.

Pete couldn't find anything much to put into this section therefore Matt comes to the rescue by talking about his Manjaro install.

It began in South Africa
As you can imagine Pete is in his element when Matt starts to discuss the proposal for Ubuntu to create their own package management environment "one more step to my prediction" screams Pete. Matt desperately tries to point out that yet again this is just a proposal but Pete suggests that maybe he should take out yet another Ladbrokes bet. The boys fall about with laughter at the revelation that Ubuntu's servers are running a version of Apache that is 12 months out of date! Your data is safe with us.

The bra of wrong.

You'll be pleased to know it's a shorter show this episode. The team can clearly pat themselves on the back as yet again there are no corrections from episode 50 so to celebrate the guys try to master some tongue twisting Irish place names sent in by one of our listeners.

Having failed miserably to master the language of the little people Matt proceeds to make sure he ruins any chance of a knighthood by slagging off our current Prime Minister and his attempt to block porn from public Wi-Fi. Finally for this section of the show Pete tells Matt about Sabayon moving to Git.

Archie Woof, woof
Yet again the Arch Linux community demonstrates that it has the tact of a sledgehammer as Pete tells us about an issue that was shut down by the forum moderator simply because one of our listeners happened to mention that the hardware they was using was a Rasberry Pi.

Hold onto your seats folks Matt actually has something good to say about Ubuntu! Yes that's right, finally they have actually produced something physical in the shape of the XPS Dell laptop.
