TechBytes Audiocast – Episode 9 – 17/11/10

Posted on Updated on

Through the power of mind control and Skype,  Gordon Sinclair was convinced to come back to TechBytes for a second show! – Of course I jest, but Gordon’s addition to show 8 was enthusiastically received and enjoyed by many.  Kindly Gordon wanted to come back and put his own viewpoint to the merry throng (a Tolkienesque phrase, put in for a fellow fan) again and of course he is more than welcome.  It is hoped that he will be a regular co-host on the show.

Intro music was written by Tom Smith and you can find more of his excellent work here.

We covered many topics on this show so here’s a breakdown:

Debian Women IRC Training Sessions

Tensions between Ubuntu Fedora mount over new website

North Carolina to raise army of Microsofties

IRC botnets dying off

Exclusive: Microsoft Altered Windows Sales Numbers

We looked at many other subjects including Chrome OS, Android, Tablets, Parrot, Libreoffice, Mandriva and much much more!

There were a couple of “goodies” which I am going to try to provide on every show.  These gems could be CC e-books, FOSS software or something else entirely.  The two looked at in this show were:

Invent with Python – A Python E-Book for the absolute beginner!

Chromium BSU – No connection to the browser, a shoot-em-up in the spirit of Xenon2!

We all hope you enjoyed the show and as always your feedback is appreciated.

Gordon Sinclair (Thistleweb) and his site can be found here.

Due (again to time constraints) the show is hosted over on Techrights only which can be found with Roy’s show notes here.

    […] Chromium BSU is not a new title and as far as I can tell the final version was released in 2002.  Don’t let this put you off though, it’s a polished title which is as difficult as it is addictive.  I originally mentioned this in episode 9 of the TechBytes audiocast which can be found here.
