LHS Episode #018
While Richard is back home in Texas, I came out to San Jose, California for a week of “geeking out.” I’m attending the O’Reilly Open Source Convention, learning all I can about Ubuntu, Open Source licensing and patents, cloud computing, system tuning and monitoring and a whole lot more. I hope to put out a couple of short supplemental podcasts for Linux in the HAM Shack giving a little insite into my experiences here and tell a little bit about what I’ve learned.
As far as Episode #018 is concerned, Richard and I tackled a few questions from listeners. We spent a few minutes trying to keep our thoughts to ourselves about spam e-mail, managing to fail miserably. After that, we talk about some useful ham radio and other miscellaneous add-ons for Firefox that we hope our listeners will find useful. And when no other topics present themselves, our well-oiled machine moves onto an in-depth look at the virtual keyboard and mouse controller called Synergy.
We hope everyone enjoys this edition of the podcast and feels compelled to send in their comments, questions and suggestions for future episodes. Also, don’t forget to follow us individually and as a podcast on Twitter, and make sure to leave your audio comments at +1-888-455-0305 so we can include them in upcoming shows.
73 de Russ and Richard
LHS Episode #016
Because Episode #015 was a bit late, this one is going to seem a bit early but actually it’s right on time. All it takes is a little perserverance and perspiration on my part and I can actually get these podcasts edited and released when they’re supposed to be. Imagine that.
As usual, we start out Episode #016 talking about feedback from listeners. We always love to hear what people are saying about us, and we especially like feeling useful when we can answer the questions that come from you. A comment from a listener leads us to our rather unusual topic for this episode: Windows. Now, before you tune out–we don’t actually talk about Windows directly. What we do instead is present all the ways in which we believe Linux is Windows’s equal, from ease of installing applications to productivity out of the box to support and development.
So as always we hope you enjoy this latest episode of Linux in the HAM Shack. Thanks for listening and 73 to all.
