On this week's , @moosical and I present 12 tracks voted by our listeners as their favourites from the last 12 months.


Granted, but there are some words that _no-one_ needs to know the definition of! πŸ˜†

Watching my 13 year old daughter looking things up on Urban Dictionary doesn't fill me with confidence...

TuxJam 72 is out.
@kevie @thelovebug and I talk about free and open source software interspersed with creative commons music. We review Haiku, the non-linux operating system, and the Android app DroidShows for tracking your TV viewing.

Just finished recording this month's episode of with @kevie and @mcnalu - really sorry about the editing you have to do, @kevie

Dunno how late to the party I might be, but I've been podcasting using Linux exclusively for nearly 11 years. If I can help, I will!

Just done the same, thanks for letting me know about that!


Dammit! πŸ˜‚. I actually meant the Olympic... there was a conspiracy theory that it was the Olympic that went out instead of the Titanic, but with Titanic's designation.

And not a lottery number in sight!


Did you know?

In 1898, fourteen years before the Titanic sank, author Morgan Robertson wrote a book called "The Wreck of the Titan".

Its story? Well you know, it's just about a fictional ocean liner called Titan that sinks in the North Atlantic after striking an iceberg.


Anyone interested to take over the domain gnusocial.de? Renewal is due for Feb. 02 and I won't renew it.

Thanks for that, I'll have a look at that OPML for ideas, however it doesn't solve my problem. The podcast in question is Fortunately... and although the BBC do have an RSS feed for it, they stopped updating it at the end of last year as part of making the "podcast" exclusive to BBC Sounds.

Brand new episode of the Admin Admin Podcast, featuring Al, Jerry, and Jon!

I've just seen the premonition sequence of Final Destination 5, against my own better judgement. I predicted that they would have pushed the boundary of what had been done previously to the point of excess. Wow, was I right. Is it _really_ necessary to show that level of detail at the point of someone's demise? The film industry has descended into and it's quite sickening.
