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”.
Since we're sick, wife and I have been working our way through old Ernst Lubitsch movies. Trouble in Paradise and Ninotchka first (both great ones). Just finished To Be or Not To Be which was remade in the 80s by Mel Brooks.
Awesome movie. Highly recommended.
A comedy about Hitler... made during WWII. Ballsy. Love it.
The Mel Brooks version (also fantastic), contains many of the same shots and scenes (and even wardrobe and sets). I may need to watch that one tomorrow (for the umpteenth time) just to compare the two.
Now, with that, I'm going to put on Short Circuit and try my best to fall asleep.
Pulled up to my usual ATM this morning and saw this. Since there was no mouse or keyboard I drove to another.
Whole crew is hanging in there. Kids already on the up and up. My wife and I feel like garbage, but we're making 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.
