1307 - What's in my Bag | 2013-08-06

In this show, I tell you all about my bag. I start with the back compartment, and work my way to the front, so from magnetic card to keys on a tether. I carry a 1 Terabyte drive with me, which is a full backup of my computer. This is a weak version of offsite backup because sometimes it is not offsite. I have no office or other place where I can store it, though. It's better than nothing. One recommendation I do make is to carry a jeweler's loupe. They are not that expensive and can make it possible to read tiny model numbers on parts or just tiny print.

Listeners, this is my second attempt at a show. It's not that hard, and I would like to hear from others about what's in their bag.


1302 - How I Got to Linux | 2013-07-30

In this show, I cover my early years learning code in the late 60s. I move on to my history with home computers, and finding out about Linux around 2007 or so. I comment on Ubuntu and Mint. I mention dual booting and my one episode of triple booting.

Listeners, this is my first attempt at a show. It's not that hard, and I would like to hear from others as to how they got to Linux.
