Title: Twenty Sixteen

In this episode: Ian Murdoch, creator of Debian, has died. AMD is overhauling its open source driver approach. Linux has been made to run on a PS4. IPv6 is now at 10% adoption, after only 20 years. And there’s an outbreak of common sense at the Dutch Government. All this plus our regular Finds, Brains and Voices sections. Plus, One. More. Thing.

What’s in the show:

  • News:
  • Finds of the Fortnight:
    • From our #linuxvoice IRC channel on Freenode:
      • <Devilment> My find is Wi-fi Privacy Police. It prevents leaking of SSIDs of other networks you may have used in the past
      • <james_olympus> I’ll offer Stirling’s Approximation as an interesting find; but ‘programming’ on a calculator keyboard reminded me of http://fignition.co.uk.
      • <mcphail> My find has been setting “/umode +R” on IRC stops the majority of drive-by private-message proselytising by religious nutters. I also found that bcache (using an SSD as cache for a HDD) handles power cuts quite gracefully, having had some problems with the ‘leccy during the storms but no filesystem corruption during writes.
    • Mike:
      • sudo apt-get install xflip; sleep 300; meltdown -wait 20 – to make someone’s screen appear to melt
      • http://helloworldquiz.com – guess a language based on its source code
      • ncdu – disk usage visualiser
    • Andrew:
      • Google’s Nexus 5 is definitely fixable.
    • Graham:
      • The Bittorrent File System – BTFS.
      • Create pixel art just like we did in the 80s with Aseprite (source code here).
    • Ben:
  • Vocalise your Neurons
      Huge thanks to both Remy and Scott for sending in their thoughts. If you would like yours read out next time, send them to mike@linuxvoice.com.
  • Voice of the Masses: 2015 Was the year of Linux and Open Source software. What next?

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