Warning: This podcast contains use of the words ‘neckbeard’ and ‘dangler’. If you are offended by these terms, please find alternative sources of ‘entertainment‘.
In this week’s show:-
- We chat about etherwake, vi, wedding photography in New York, netbooks, pop-up books, and backups.
- We discuss what’s new in soon-to-be-released Oneiric Ocelot (aka Ubuntu 11.10).
- We confabulate about how to keep the Ubuntu community, and its leaders, engaged. We mention Amber Graner’s new Ubuntu Leadership Team – take a look.
- In the news:-
- We have a Bit About Ubuntu:-
- Not about Ubuntu
- We have a command line lurrrrrrrrve from Andrew McCarthy via twitter:”eatmydata” runs a program disabling all fsync-like syscalls. Dangerous if power fails etc. but makes some disk-heavy tasks v. quick, “liferea” RSS reader uses sqlite as backend, but badly. Every tiny change is a fully sync’ed transaction. Much better under eatmydata.
- Finally, we have your feedback, including a corker of a missive from the Wing Commander.
- Comments and suggestions are welcomed to: firstname.lastname@example.org
