What you are about to read is a very strange publication.
Within the pages of The Lunduke Journal, you will not read about the latest press release from a Cloud Storage Provider (tm). Nor will you be inundated with Best Practices around the Containerization of Big Data. Whatever the heck that actually means.
What you will find... are nerdy things.
Happy, nerdy things. Stuff that you can read -- and activities you can enjoy -- by yourself... or with your friends... or with your kids. Always family friendly, always Safe-For-Work.
A new issue of The Lunduke Journal comes out every two weeks, and is chock full of:
Super-Nerdy Articles - The kind of stuff you won't read in an Enterprise Computing type magazine. In this issue, we're diving into the wild and wonderful world of Computer Bulletin Board Systems (BBS's). Their history, their modern usage, and even how to set up your own in 2020. New topics every issue. Linux? Retro-computing? Alternative Operating Systems? You bet.
Nerdy Comic Strips - I like Dad Jokes. The nerdier the better. Sprinkled throughout The Lunduke Journal you'll find some of the nerdiest Dad Jokes and comic strips on the planet. Because smiling is important.
Tech News - One page of Technology news. Maximum. And only the stuff that is truly interesting. Or entertaining. Or just plain weird. Don't have time to keep up with the Tech news? One page every two weeks. Boom. Done.
Nerdy Crafts - Seriously. Crafts. Paper dolls of the Linux mascot (Tux the Penguin). Cross Stitch patterns. Color-by-numbers. All extremely nerdy. Got a spouse you'd like to introduce to your nerdy world? Want to play paper dolls with your kids... using the Linux mascot? The Lunduke Journal is your place.
And The Lunduke Journal is always ad free. Supported entirely by readers, like you, who subscribe to support the publication and get new issues every two weeks.
Reminder: You'll want to subscribe at either of these URLs to get Issue #2 when it arrives in two weeks!
(Lunduke.Locals.com is the recommended place to subscribe. Amazing, nerdy community. Get alerted the moment new issues are available... as well as new videos I produce.)
Yours in nerdiness,

Recorded live at LinuxFest NorthWest. May 6th, 2017.
I believe there are a couple naughty words in this one. From back on my "occasionally use a naughty word" days.
This is the 2020 installment of "Linux Sucks" -- originally released on May 28th, 2020.
The Internet was being stupid. Or perhaps it was just Google. Either way, the chat got way out of sync at one point. Which was both frustrating... and highly amusing. ;)
Thanks for all the nerdy questions, everyone! Made for a fun evening!
It sorted out in Part 2. :)
Thinking about the DOS Subsystem for Linux. Because it's fun.
The first chapter of Linux Sucks is available for supporters (either here on Locals or over on Substack)! Chapter 2 hits later this week! If you haven’t already, sign up and get the chapters as they roll out.
Plus, and I totally didn't mention this in the show, but audio book chapters of Linux Sucks will be released as subscriber only exclusive episodes. With the first two audio chapters dropping later this week. Pretty rad.
Should computer A.I. have rights? What about SkyNet... or Johnny 5?
I have so many thoughts on the story “Missouri man fighting for right of computers to hold patents”.
Big day tomorrow. Got a thing to unbox and setup at work. Anyone care to guess what’s in the box? (don’t mind the mess in my office).
A new Amiga 1200 accelerator board has appeared: the Tsunami 1230.
New hardware upgrade (with a 68030 CPU) for a nearly 30 year old computer. Love it.
In order to post or comment, you'll need to become a paying member. This supports the work I do -- and also keeps out the riff raff. ;)
The rules around here are super simple:
1) Be Excellent to Each Other.
2) No cursin' or posting material you couldn't show on prime-time TV in the 1980's.
That's it, really! Be cool and keep it clean so folks can enjoy this at work and around their kids.
Oh, and nerdiness is encouraged. The nerdier the better.
