Title: Cabaret Voltaire

In this episode: We look at the results from the latest Arch user survey, hear about the first x86 HDMI dongle PC we can think of, and there are two Tizen news items (remember Tizen?). We’ve got some tasty finds, thanks to the community, and a Voice of the Masses with a slightly political edge.

What’s in the show:

  • News:
  • Finds of the Fortnight:
    • From our #linuxvoice IRC channel on Freenode:
      • <pwaring> I have found out that Creme Eggs are now sold in boxes of 5 and the chocolate has changed, which is OUTRAGEOUS but not really Linux related.
      • <Devilment> My Find of the Fortnight is cheese on toast with a layer of Marmite on the bread before the cheese.
      • <Stilvoid> related find: cheese on toast with a layer of mayonnaise and mustard!
      • <Nanu_Phoenix> I love cheese on toast with a layer of wholegrain mustard & tomato puree, I’ll have to try mayonnaise. :)
      • <Nanu_Phoenix> My foody related find of the fortnight previous to this fortnight, is to throw some cinnamon stick in the grinder when grinding my coffee beans, it makes for a lovely cuppa!
      • <Stilvoid> actual find: notmuch mail [notmuchmail.org] – it’s a thing for tagging your email and then being able to search it very easily – it deals with vast quantities of email quite happily.
      • <Stilvoid> another actual find: fasd [https://github.com/clvv/fasd] remembers where you’ve been in your filesystem and then allows you to jump to locations really easy. e.g. typing `z lv` would drop me straight into /home/steve/Documents/lv/ if I’ve been there recently/frequently.
      • <Aikidokajeff> Find: MHDDFS – https://romanrm.net/mhddfs Join multiple File systems to for a single larger FS.
    • Graham:
      • Dexed, an open source recreation of Yamaha’s famous 1980s FM synthesizer.
    • Andrew:
    • Ben:
      • A vertical mouse could help painful wrists.
      • Don’t trust anyone, even your VPN provider.
  • Vocalise Your Neurons:
    • Due to Mike’s absence, we didn’t have any neurons in this episode, but if you’d like yours read out next time, email them to mike@linuxvoice.com.
  • Voice of the Masses: How can we educate politicians?

Presenters: Ben Everard, Andrew Gregory and Graham Morrison.
