How I got into tech.

Started by monsterb, this series invites people to share with us how they found Linux. It has become traditional for first time hosts to share with us their journey to Linux. Indeed it has morphed to be way to share your journey in tech right up to your first contribution to HPR.

This is an ad hoc interview with Dave, recorded on the server prior to yesterdays interview.

Bad but Audible

Hi Z,

Sorry about the audio quality which I'll accept responsibility for. This was our first time using mumble and there were a few teething issues. Immediately after recording this show we recorded HPR0741 where we had (some) of the issues resolved.

Going forward we hope to introduce some guidelines for getting good audio quality from a mumble recording but that was no reason not to use the interview. So apologies for the poor audio quality but our focus is on content and if the show is audible we'll put it out.

On a related note we have only 8 shows in the queue so if you would like to record an audio segment give me a shout.
