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?

Matt's Cat
Karou enjoys the sun with a special treat from Matt who bravely opens a window.

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.

Karou craps herself over Pi.
