EP14 – Happy Birthday Mrs C

The team yet again apologise for stealing two hours of peoples lives “I’ll never get that time back you know!” and promise to try and make it shorter. The subject of ‘My train set’ is discussed along with methods of managing distributions.

Everything falls apart as the discussion moves to ‘Ice cream sandwich’ with facial recognition when we hear the hosts know fook all about it. Will the announcement of a five-year support for Ubuntu LTS be an effective selling point?

Convinced Mark Shuttleworth of Ubuntu listens to the show the team comes up with an awesome name Ubuntu 12.10 we then move onto why identi.ca is losing its original fan base, is it the current problems or is it that G+ is shiny?

Room x1101 returns with topics of “Graphical boot loaders and “Netbook editions” suggested by Lincslug.

Plus much, much more.

Closed minds need not apply.

Janice has had her work cut out dealing with the flood of fan mail feed back, the team get a lesson in the GPL but still manage to find some unanswered questions.

EP12 – Two sweaty men.

In what now appears to be a potential Arch Linux section we hear how Gnome 3.2.0 is available in Extra and that ArchBang 2011.10 is released. Finally, to try and get the humour back in we have a little play with “Draw a stick man” which passes 5 minutes if you’re bored.

Room x1101 returns with “Buzz words” with an interesting outcome.

For the main topic, the discussion turns to ‘Release Cycles’ and should they be speeded up or slowed down?

EP11 – Cant get it back in.

The team talks about the proposed sale of Yahoo and the unbelievable fact that people use alternatives to what most of us use until Pete gets bored. The royal “we” is used while talking about the Arch Linux announcement of a new iso.

After much pleading and money changing hands, Room x1101 makes a comeback, and we finally see Matt in his true colours as he swears like that bloke down shopping centre armed with a bottle of Diamond White.

While knocking back some Ginger Beer, we are reminded that the 19th of September is “Talk like a pirate day”.

For the main feature, the team revisit the discussion they had in their very first podcast episode “Should we be paying for our Linux?” and possibly using Flattr and the FSF for that?

In the closing section, the team talk about Tinap and our mate AndyC’s hospitalisation “Get well Andy.”

EP10 – Purple pigeon pooh

Pete muses the perceived demise of Identi.ca and the drop off of some regular posters and talks about how he has loosened up and let people enter his circle. Matt moans about companies offering goods on the cheap yet charging the earth for their consumables.

Thank you very much for sending me my password in plain text. http://plaintextoffenders.com

For the main topic, the discussion turns to the announcement of Steve Jobs leaving Apple and what they will do now. Pete shows his ignorance of OSX and has to use a website http://osxbook.com/book/bonus/ancient/whatismacosx/ to help him out.

EP9 – Are yours hot Bill?

Matt reveals his secret liaisons with Linux community members and having slap-up meals while generally wasting the shows GimickCoins on expensive evenings with Red Hat employees while Pete sits at home watching the clock.

We hear the thoughts on virtual attendance of Oggcamp from Bill and what it was like following events via identi.ca and Google+ (Even though Bill doesn’t use G+). The team’s main discussion is a continuation of Lugs and how they work in America. We also hear how listeners such as Becky Newborough have got off their bums and done something about resurrecting their local lug.

Yet again we hit the dreaded sound problems, we’ve cleaned it as best we can. Please struggle through and we’ll make it up to you all in EP10.

P.S. Dirk Gently is cool.

EP8 – OggCamp 2011

Given Matt and Pete had no equipment with them The Community rallied round and scraped together Mic’s and recording devices. A very special thanks goes to biglesp who glided round unfazed by Pete’s demands for better rooms, numerous microphones and a basket of fresh dairy produce.

While normally the show would be edited to make it easier on the ear we have decided to release the raw recording as a lot of fun things went on prior to Dan Lynch finally getting the main mixer desk to play nicely.

Thank you OggCamp 2011 we love you!

Show Length: 00:27:49

EP7 – Non scattare fotografie.

In this release, we hear how Matt is going camping in an effort to test his survival skills for OggCamp. Pete explains how he killed the feed for the show and yet doesn’t give us one of his pathetic apologies.

We hear the thoughts on freetards and lusers and question all name calling is it a case of “The pot calling the kettle black?” Matt decides to pick a fight with community giant Bkuhn in the new section “I hate your blog”, and Pete does his best to blame Matt and look as innocent as possible.

Pete tells us how he went round The Pope’s house for tea and nearly got arrested. And an email from NYbill spawns a discussion on FOSS events both in the US and UK.

EP6 – Here have a rat burger.

In this episode we hear how Matt is so poor he has to cruise barbecues for food Pete tells us how Xorg has placed him on their hate list for abusing their products, Phil talks about the custom Crunchbang he has created for Beck’s, because he luuurves her, and Becky tells us how she callously kills bees.

Pete gives the worst apology in history to Jon Kulp for falsely accusing him of sending the silent Room x1101 sound file.

The team go all Zen-like discussing existentialism and Matt, Pete and Beck’s gang up on Phil simply because they are cruel. Matt is forced to explain the reason for the shows name and yet still manages to come out squeaky clean.

Matt suggests CoC’s (Codes of Conducts) for Room x1101 which descends into the usual gutter humour listeners have come to expect from the show.

There was a disaster in that it initially appeared the first two hours of recording had been lost and that further recording was impossible therefore we stopped it there while Pete tried to recover the files and figure out what was wrong.

Fortunately, recovery was possible if slightly corrupted in places and the final half hour of the show was recorded two days later. We should point out the sound quality is not very good however we just wanted to finish so listen out for Pete screaming “Get on with it!”.

EP5 – You can put it in my hand

Always one to take the controversial path Pete announces that the team will cease to use Linux and follow the one true faith that is Eddie Stobart. The ongoing bickering between Tinap and tdtrs continues as we hear all about secretaries and rival features.

Matt finally manages to get a word in edgeways and talks about the fascinating subject of HDMI cables, but of course, gobby Pete cant resist doing an impression inside a well known UK computer store.

Room x1101 finally has a proper sound effect although the team struggle to find items to discuss as the fan base are too bone idle to send suggestions in. Pete lets slip the handbag fight he had on identi.ca with a certain Community Manager during the feedback emails and, distressingly, breaks down and cries like girl.
