FCP News

Hello everyone!  After a quite refreshing break, I am ready to get FCP back into the swing of things.

Firstly, on Sunday at 0100UTC, we will be having our Podcast IRC meeting in #fullcirclemagazine on Feel free to use the FCM WebIRC if you aren’t at a real client. It is crucial that anyone who is part of the podcast must attend this meeting. The agenda can be found at

We are also looking for new co-hosts for the show. Please refer to the ad placed in my Sound Bites column in FCM #9 for more details. If you are interested, you must attend the meeting.

Also, with some help from Justin Gerace and James Savage, the new Penguin Central Podcast is mostly up and running. You can check it out at The site is syndicated at Planet Ubuntu-Au and the link is at my website.

Technical Difficulties

Unfortunately we’ve had to postpone releasing Full Circle Podcast (FCP) #1.

Using Skype (rather than Gizmo) with conference call record software Matthew was joined by James Savage (aka: catfacts) for a recording session to create FCP#1. Unfortunately the audio didn’t turn out as well as we had expected and rather than release a substandard podcast we have decided to hold back until Matthew returns from holiday then release FCP#1 in mid-February.

Matt: James’ line had it’s fair share of static on it.

Matthew is also looking for a regular co-host. If you are free for an hour or so at roughly midnight UTC on Sundays drop Matthew an email at:

We do apologise about delaying the podcast, but we want to make sure you get the best possible sound and content.


Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! A special thanks to all of our readers, developers, contributors, writers, editors, and everyone else who has made Full Circle Magazine possible. Again, thank you!
