Readings of Linux Manpages mixed with music licensed under CreativeCommons
Rank #1: The Manpage of Man - Part I.
Happy New Year, everybody! Great to have you back at this site. In this episode I'd like to feature a funky group from France called La Goutte au Nez. They release their tunes on CDs that you can buy, but also at jamendo.com. I chose the title Chicango, which is great to start the day with. For the license have a look at CreativeCommons.Thanks for the suggestion, grep is in the process of preparation, but due to the death of a great artist of our times I prefer to read the manpage of man before. It is quite a bit of text, so I split it in two parts and continue with the second one next time.Stay tuned and all the best for 2007!
Rank #2: First Podcast - echo.
Alright, folks, here is a new podcast - mine! Do you need it? You will see. I tell you the story: I spent the last half a year on having my Linux knowledge certified by the Linux Professional Institute, which means: reading manpages, manpages, manpages.Secondly, at the beginning of 2007 I’m going to teach a bunch of young people the advantages of open source software and the benefits of the social web aka web 2.0. Therefore I wanted to be prepared.But what could I blog, what could I podcast? I’m going to read manpages to you! Isn’t that a little bit boring? Well, I had a lot of help from websites dealing with linux, hints and tricks for free, so I think mixed with some music it could be fun to learn some new commands while walking around with the new ipod from Santa Clause…We start right away with the first command: ECHO! I took the song Sandjorda by Binärpilot licensed under CreativeCommons from jamendo.com and mixed speech and tunes with the help of Audacity. Unfortunately I had to export the final file to mp3, as podbean does not allow the upload of the free ogg-format. Well, Mr. and Mrs. Podbean, here you will have something to do in 2007!Enjoy!

This 3rd episode of SysCast revolves around secrets: managing API keys, passwords, tokens, … with Hashicorp’s Vault. I’m joined by Seth Vargo from Hashicorp who explains how Vault works, its internals, different use cases, key management & rollover and lots of interesting details about Vault itself. If you’re storing your passwords inside your git repository or managing them by hand in yaml/ini files, listen to this episode to learn how Vault can help store credentials more securely and automate secret management for you. Once again, if you have a minute or 2, leave a rating on iTunes.

Rank #1: S11E42 – 42 Habits for Minimalism.
This week we have been writing Bash scripts and using Code page 437. We bring you our predictions for 2019 and also our listener predictions for 2019, plus a command line lurve and all your feedback. It’s Season 11 Episode 42 of the Ubuntu Podcast! Alan Pope, Mark Johnson and Martin Wimpress are connected and speaking to your brain. In this week’s show: We discuss what we’ve been up to recently: Martin been writing a lot of Bash and getting reaquainted with Code page 437. We present our predictions for 2019. Alan (10 points each) Elon Musk will continue to stay stupid stuff on Twitter. Something will trigger his removal from either Boring Company, Tesla or SpaceX. A significant size vendor (not Google), will make a viable Android competitor to iPad. A new Raspberry Pi will be released which has a completely different form-factor to the existing models. Mark (15 points each) ~50% of Steam games will be whitelisted to play via Proton. Perhaps 2% Linux market share. A Facebook executive will be prosecuted by a government. Martin (7.5 points each) AMD graphics cards will outperform nvidia RTX with Radeon Rays. The first device running Google’s Fuscia will come to market. A Steam games console powered by Steam OS will be released and officially endorsed by Valve. Microsoft release another significant, established, desktop application for Linux. Listener predictions via Telegram McPhail Canonical will be bought by… Sports Direct – (just think of the merchandising possibilities) Repeating my failed prediction of last year and say that snaps will run natively on the WSL. Raymond Larabe Jr I predict that Martin will have a new nvidia 20 series GPU running on another NUC by June. Sergio Schvezov I think either MS Office or a major Abobe product will be offered as a snap. Diddledan Linus will throw in the towel after yet another incident involving abbrasive behaviour resulting in a gamergate like attack on Linux. Listener predections via email Paul Waring A triple-A game title will be released with Linux supported from day one, as opposed to being ported years later by a company like Feral. Mark Shuttleworth will sell off a significant stake in Canonical to a third party. Another large company (IBM?) will launch a public cloud offering to compete with Google Cloud, AWS and Azure. Andreas Abendroth Canonical buys Microsoft. Microsoft extends the time for support of Windows 7. Torin Doyle Either Void Linux or Solus will shutdown sometime next year. Canonical will be bought out by Microsoft Bitcoin will increase greatly in value. Listener predections via Mastodon and our website Denderix Alan buys another ThinkPad and Martin releases a custom iso of Ubuntu MATE for a new model of mobile NUC built to be a mobile device with an embedded screen. Mark builds a “Two Point Hospital” theme park that is wildly successful, but is quickly shut down because all of the baths leak. Elio elementary OS Juno will have 200 or more curated apps in its appcenter (currently at about 89). RStudio will be released as a snap. We share a Command Line Lurve: pm-suspend – pm-suspend sudo pm-is-supported --suspendecho $?sudo pm-suspend And we go over all your amazing feedback – thanks for sending it – please keep sending it!
