Finally the episode you’ve all been waiting for, the one where you can actually hear what Matt is saying! Yes, finally Matt is no longer using his laptop microphone and he sounds awesome!

Yet again there is semi nudity amongst the team and we worry about the drugs den downstairs, Pete reveals how he used to be a Hell’s Angel and once owned a beast of a moped and for the main topic Matt tells us about about his date with Richard Stallman and cleverly draws Pete in to the Freedom fold by telling him about ‘Public Domain’.

We have some excellent feedback which takes up a large portion of the show but well worth the effort. And Pete struggles to fathom out who donated what via flattr but refuses to let Matt open a browser.

It’s a special episode this week dedicated to Matt’s mum on her birthday.

The team yet again apologise for stealing two hours of peoples lives “I’ll never get that time back you know!" and promise to try and make it shorter. The subject of ‘My train set’ is discussed along with methods of managing distributions.

Everything falls apart as the discussion moves to ‘Ice cream sandwich’ with facial recognition when we hear the hosts know fook all about it. Will the announcement of a five year support for Ubuntu LTS be an effective selling point?

Convinced Mark Shuttleworth of Ubuntu listens to the show the team comes up with an awesome name Ubuntu 12.10 we then move onto why identi.ca is losing it’s original fan base, is it the current problems or is it that G+ is shiny?

Room x1101 returns with topics of “Graphical boot loaders and “Netbook editions” suggested by Lincslug.

Plus much, much more.

This episode the team discover they need new teeth as neither of them can say “Bethesda” which apparently is suing Minecraft. We hear about Pete’s time at BarCamp Blackpool and how he attended three sessions that impressed him so much he has no clue who gave the talks or what they was called!

Matt tells us about Bagmify an application similar to Sparkle Share that he has written and his hopes of making millions from it.

The main topic is a passionate discussion of Apple and the passing of Steve Jobs.
Closed minds need not apply.

Janice has had her work cut out dealing with the flood of fan mail feed back, the team get a lesson in the GPL but still manage to find some unanswered questions.

This episode we find our intrepid hero’s sweltering under the famous blazing sun of the kingdom of Englishland. The team convincingly discusses the “Speed of light" story like some Oxford Don’s and pose the question "Should physics degree’s be handed back?" Listener Morten Juhl-Johansen Zolde-Fejer sends us a story about the anniversary of Libre Office but the guys take so long over repeating his name we nearly run out of time for the story.

In what now appears to be a potential Arch Linux section we hear how Gnome 3.2.0 is available in Extra and that ArchBang 2011.10 is released. Finally to try and get the humour back in we have a little play with “Draw a stick man" which passes 5 minutes if your bored.

Room x1101 returns with “Buzz words” with an interesting outcome.

For the main topic the discussion turns to ‘Release Cycles’ and should they be speeded up or slowed down?
