Title: Schneier’s Law

In this episode: There’s yet another serious Linux vulnerability to contend with, but there are new Linux machines from Dell. Bodhi Linux is making a return and there’s a new version LibreOffice, including a version for Android. We’ve got lots of tasty Finds and a Voice of the Masses about old hardware.

What’s in the show:

  • News:
  • Finds of the Fortnight:
    • From our #linuxvoice IRC channel on Freenode:
      • <dije> Umm… Quodlibet sucks less than Rhythmbox, Banshee etc. Does that count? And its companion tagging app, ExFalso, is teh smartness..
      • <dije> Here’s a newbie-friendly one: To get Your Picture Here in the login session “greeter”, put a 96×96 pixel PNG file called .face in your home dir. Maybe that’s for a newb section in the mag; not really a “find”.
      • <dije> For the keyboard-centric anti-mousing fanatic, Conkeror is a web browser based on the same XulRunner engine that Firefox uses. Very efficient. Runs some but not all Firefox plugins — basically the ones that don’t assume Firefox presentation widgets are always present. Very Emacs-y in conception and implementation, including being customizable and even reprogrammable at runtime, using standard JavaScript.
      • <AdamDBrown> RFC 1149 IP Datagrams on Avian Carriers.
    • Graham:
    • Andrew:
    • Ben:
    • Mike:
      • Lille is actually a rather nice French town.
      • vsch, a git wrapper that allows you to have several git repositories in a single directory – very useful for your home directory.
  • Vocalise Your Neurons:
      New Year apathy means we have no neurons. But if you’d like yours read out next time, email them to mike@linuxvoice.com.
  • Voice of the Masses: What’s your oldest machine running Linux?

Presenters: Ben Everard, Andrew Gregory, Graham Morrison and Mike Saunders.
