Let's Talk Apple 21, the show for May 2015 with myself, +Adam Christianson, +Gaz Maz & +Bren Finan is out: http://lets-talk.ie/lta21

The show starts with a quick roundup of some of the court-related Apple news for May 2015, before jumping into the main stores of the month. First, a promotion for Jony Ive, then a roundup of the some of the news around Apple Watch, then the demise of the perennial Apple TV rumour, and finally, the banishment of the much maligned discoveryd, and the return of mDNSResponder.

The show finishes with a quick roundup of some other important Apple-related news that broke in May, including some small tweaks to the Mac line, some more big US retailers moving towards Apple Pay, and Microsoft's announcement of plans to bring Cortana to iOS.

I can now definitively answer +Allison Sheridan's mega-important question "could I use Crypt::HSXKPasswd to create passwords with poop emoji" with a resounding YES!

I never thought I'd be writing code like this while testing my module, but regardless, this rather odd code works!

Source Forge are really starting to set off my 'ick' sensors. It's gotten to the stage that I simply do not trust any software downloaded from there - once bitten, twice shy and all that!

Thank Goodness GitHub haven't gone to the dark side (at least not yet)!
 
It appears that +SourceForge took over the control of the 'GIMP for Windows' account and is now distributing an ads-enabled installer of GIMP. They also locked out original owner of the account, Jernej Simončič, who has been building the Windows versions of GIMP for our project for years.

So far they haven't replied to provide explanations. Therefore, we remind you again that GIMP only provides builds for WIndows via its official Downloads page.
Source for version 2.8 (Stable). GIMP releases available from gimp.org and its mirrors contain the source code and have to be compiled in order to be installed on your system. For instructions, how to build GIMP from source code, please see this page.

SF have page one google coverage for GIMP for windows. They're right there under GIMP.org.
Now, that's knowing what to search for. If you were to search for photoshop alternatives, there's a goodly chance you'll get the sourceforge first.

Let's Talk Apple  - 
 
Let's Talk Apple 20, the show for April 2015 with myself, +Allison Sheridan, +Chuck Joiner & +Gaz Maz is out: http://lets-talk.ie/lta20

Joining Bart this month are Allison Sheridan from the NosillaCast Mac Podcast, Chuck Joiner from the Mac Voices Podcast, and Gazmaz from the MyMac Podcast. 

It was a busy month in Apple news so the show jumps straight into the main stories, starting with some first-hand experiences with the Apple Watch, then moving on to Photos, then the Q2 earnings call, and then quickly finishing up with some Apple Pay news and some news from Microsoft's Build conference.

+Allister Jenks interesting how words change - to me a bollard is a flimsy piece of hollow metal put up to prevent people parking where they shouldn't - interesting that the word actually comes from something so solid and substantial!

The show starts with a quick look at some Apple-related numbers and statistics released in March before moving on to a quick rundown of some Apple-related legal stories. The big stories for the month were the Spring Forward Apple Event, and the new Steve Jobs book 'Becoming Steve Jobs'.
