First show

That was a good first show. I would like to hear more about C programming, which I know nothing about. Also I think you will have another friend here who likes the BSD's. Audio was just fine, keep it up. :)

An excellent first show

I enjoyed this a lot. It sounded really good and had a lot of interesting content.

I'd like to hear more about modern BSD. I used to use proprietary Unixes based on BSD back in the day:

- SunOS on Suns - a little

- DEC Ultrix on DEC MIPs systems (DECstation, DECserver) - daily for several years

- OSF/1 AXP and later Tru64 UNIX on DEC Alphas - a little

Then I moved to Linux at work and at home, so I'm out of touch with the way BSD has developed.

Key bindings

You can remap your ctrl and alt keys using udev hwdb, e.g., interchanging ctrl and caps keys
And you can use ctrl + [ to send an escape character
