We are back!  Its been almost two weeks since the last show.  I stress that this is not because of a lack of interest but merely a net access issue my end where I find that a small village is not seen as a priority when connection is taken out by some drill happy engineer.

Todays ending track is "13 Tears" by Behatred from their album "Black Lotus". Its heavy, you have been warned!

We cover a plethora of topics in the show which lasts just over an hour and I must say thanks to Roy for putting his move on hold to get a show out today.

Ubuntu – Banshee issue and Mono – A quick look at whats been happening.

Sony – Its actions against the rootkey hack and discussing LG and its hold on Sony PS3 imports.

NDA’s and (very quick) mention of the MVP Summit 2011 – We can’t tell you much though….its a secret!

Phones, Phones, Phones – Simplifying for whom?

Xfce -Gordon mentions the new version……and I bring up Wolvix yet again.

VICE 2.3 – C64/128, Vic20, Pet, Plus4, CBM-II emulation! I highlight this excellent emulator and why the latest version is of particular interest to me.

We discuss Novell, Patents, cartels and how these things harm the end-user.

All this and much more, compressed into little over an hour for your listening pleasure.

The closing track is by the band Behatred and you can find their Jamendo account here.
