  • Hi,
    Really like the show, but you MUST sort out some higher quality microphones because I often can’t understand what’s being said.
    Keep up the good work!

  • I really like the show you guys are getting it up there in time. Pod cast 4 is 56 minutes long so are you going to target a 1 hour show? And how about a little bit of back ground on how the show is being produced (software and OS wise). Keep up the all the linux info I really like to learn any and things linux. I would like to do a video pod cast of the show.

  • Kudos on the clickable links in the show notes. *swoon*

  • great podcast so far! a few comments in response to your latest episode. i use crashplan for ubuntu backups, and it works great for me. flat fee for unlimited storage, and it’s cross-platform linux, mac, and windows. you do have kde users in your audience, even if we’re in the minority. i have been a loyal kubuntu user since breezy badger, and i have no plans to switch to gnome. i don’t know if dave was making an effort to speak more slowly, but he was easier to understand in episode 4 than in previous ones.

  • i actually meant hoary hedgehog in my previous post. it’s hard to keep all the releases straight.

  • You went through some good games. Have you looked into UFO:AI?
    => http://ufoai.sourceforge.net/
    It is a … what do you call it when you don’t want to call it a copy, but something heavily inspired by the X-COM games.

  • Nice blog. Iam folowing you from my mobile rss subscriber.
