EP90 "The night of terrible puns." is released!

Google joins the ranks of ♫ ♪ "I did it, myyyyy wayyyyy" ♬ ♩ and announces its own X11 replacement codenamed Freon, along with Canonical-nee-Ubuntu's Mir and everyone else's Wayland and or Xorg.

You thought they were dead? You thought you'd heard the last of them, but yes, SCO are back and set to ruffle IBM's feathers all over again with their reactivated $5 Billion lawsuit.

If you can't beat them lock them out! Microsoft appear to be on course to implement their plan to stop anyone putting what they want on a PC or Laptop with Secure Boot scheduled to be implemented on Windows 10.

♫ ♪ "Happy birthday to you..........." ♬ ♩ The GNU Manifesto turns 30! If you didn't know that, don't worry, clearly most of the Internet is unaware too.

"All crimes begin with a thought. So, if you control thought, you can control crime."  -- Crimethink George Orwell 1984
When does an online fantasy cross the line into criminal conspiracy? That’s the issue the Second Circuit Court of Appeals is currently weighing in United States v. Gilberto Valle, the so-called “cannibal cop” case.

OpenSSL patched a “high” severity flaw as part of a patch batch on Thursday that turned out to be nowhere near as scary as widely feared.

Just started it into my commute in and I recognized bumper song 2.  I am not sure how sampling works when labeling it as creative commons....

The original track is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0NKUpo_xKyQ

Oh and your link went to the wrong song when I was trying to sort it out.  It should have been https://www.jamendo.com/en/track/1179113/julian-rhine-white-rhino-wednesdays-01-white-lights-ft.-ellie-goulding-brenton-duvall

Clearly both +Matthew Copperwaite and Pete was preparing for tomorrow nights recording at the same time as they both fought over who would save the running order in dropbox. :-D

Looks OK, I think there's enough there unless there's some news that +Fabian Scherschel is joining Microsoft or Canonical-nee-Ubuntu goes into liquidation. :-D

We didn't record as planned last night because Pete was a mardy swine and didn't want to. Please see the promotions manager for a full refund of next weeks subscription. :-)

Looking over some old stuff in the  #tdtrs  folders. Here's something that never made it to the show. The idea was to interview Luke Slater AKA @reality for the role of:

Created: 4/3/13
tdtrs Community Manager Interview

Sound of knocking at the door.

Matt: “Come in.”

Sound of foot steps (long)

Pete: “Please take a seat on that toilet over there.”

Matt: “Question”

Luke: “Answer”

Pete: “We're looking for a role model to represent the show, when did you last polish your shoes?

Luke: “Answer”

Matt: “Question”

Luke: “Answer”

Pete: “............"

Clearly Pete has always had a shoe issue?

First draft editing of EP88 is done. Can't decide between "Crunch goes Bang" or "Bye bye Phil" as the title?

Definitely the former, look forward to it!

Sadly +Philip Newborough will not be on the recording of EP88 tonight to talk about his decision to stop working on +CrunchBang so in true #tdtrs  style we'll probably make stuff up and turn the old guilt thumbscrews a few times.

that is sad news, Crunchbang is an excellent distro. If I weren't spreading myself thin with television, radio and acting I'd take it over.

EP89 "An evening of going of on a tangent." The Dick Turpin Road Show is released. 

So before we get started sadly this episode effectively died after about twenty minutes, having said that we have managed to put an episode together with the help of some corn plasters, super glue and a box of staples.

The only news story you'll hear the team discuss is the BBC dropping WMA due to licensing costs and switching to more open MPEG-DASH.

We then went on to discuss Lenovo making your newly purchased equipment vunerable with 'superfish' the discussion moved on to the NoSQL injection vulnerability of 40,000 MongoDB databases. Linus announces Linux 4.0 this was a really good discussion, honestly. :-)

We save the best till last. The headline was that Mark Shuttleworth admitted Untiy was a mistake but after some discussion we admit that's not really what he was saying.

South London Makerspace
Now this is possibly the biggest shame of the whole show, if only you could have heard Pete tearing Matt a new arsehole during this section for saying that he had no right to claim any kudos seeing as he hadn't attended much lately. Anyway the great news is the GLA (Greater London Authority) has granted the Makerspace £20,000.00!

Announcements
+Scott Evans (AKA VK7HSE) had a successful interview and is now tdtrs community manager and setting up a discussion site, coz we hate Forums.

EP88 - Crunch goes Bang! is released. http://tdtrs.co.uk #tdtrs  

The GPG Encryption project nearly runs out of money until some of the big boys come to its rescue and hand over a load of dosh. Pete and Matt discuss whether all projects should come under a single umbrella such as The Linux Foundation.

+Raspberry Pi 2 announced but can you in fact get more bang for your buck with the plethora of devices out there? The guys muse that the Raspberry Pi project seems to be moving away from its original reason for coming to the market.

Main Topic
+Philip Newborough has announced the end of +CrunchBang we did try to blackmail him onto the show but clearly he was holding out for a better offer. :-D

It began in South Africa
Huzzah! Finally a phone! While Matt and Pete are chuffed to bits that +Canonical finally listened to #tdtrs and got some stock phones. They're less than impressed with what you actually get in the box.

South London Makerspace
Having an open day on the 21st February.

Introduction
Welcome to The Dick Turpin Roadshow, a humorous look at the Open Source community from comments on social networks, peoples blogs and websites to the mad bag lady on the street corner.

Some, if not everything, said here is probably the fiction of our warped minds so there's little point in getting upset about anything we say. Hopefully you'll find us funny and entertaining, there will be some rude words so if you have a weak heart or are easily offended this is not for you.
