Episode 25: The Return of Chris McDonough, bootstrapping pip, projects and playgrounds, and the death of Open Source consulting

The problem with having an awesome guest like Chris McDonough on the podcast is you have a really hard time topping that. So what better way to kick off the cobwebs of the podcast than to invite Chris back. Well, add to that three provocative topics (one of which was penned my Chris himself) and you have as good an excuse as any to bring back Lococast from the podcast brink.  We also took the opportunity to record it as a Google Hangout so if you want to see our unvarnished smiling faces you can. If you'd rather let your imagination run wild (and your psyche unharmed) you also have the option of listening to our regularly generated audio file.

We have one last interview in the can from Ohio Linuxfest, and it's appropriate that we release this canned interview, since it's with Michael "Call me Fish" Fischer (get it? Canned? Fish? OK, I'll stop now). Fish presented a talk at Ohio Linuxfest entitled: "Managing a Computer Lab in a High School Environment". After the talk, Rick and Fish sat down to talk a bit about computers and education, and why Fish brought some of his students to Ohio Linuxfest.

Special thanks to Michael "Call me Fish" Fischer for taking the time to talk with us at Lococast.net.

"Sherman, set the way-back machine for two months ago, when the fall colors weren't sitting upon our lawn. September should be good, right around the time when Ohio Linuxfest was occurring. Yep, that should be good. Now, be a good boy and open the doors and watch the way-back machine while I listen to these interviews."

So, insert the standard disclaimer about not getting these up in time because [life got busy | things came up | cat ate my hard drive] and accept our humble apologies for not getting these interviews up sooner.

The next interview from our adventures at Ohio Linuxfest features Aaron Toponce. Aaron sat down to talk with Rick about Aaron's presentation at Ohio Linuxfest about Password Theory and Breaking Encrypted Filesystems. Suffice to say, you might not want to leave your machine unattended near any maids anytime soon.

Special thanks to Aaron Toponce for sitting down and talking with us at Ohio Linuxfest.

Lococast Interview: Jim Barber

Lococast Interview with Jim Barber



Sailing the Seas of Free

Recently we received a note from a listener, Jim Barber. He sent us one of the most interesting stories of his usage of Ubuntu. Rather than read the note on the air, we decided to do an interview with Jim. Unfortunately, Rick was "on assignment", so Craig and Jim sat and talked. Hear about Jim's computer experiences from the past, and how he uses Ubuntu in one of the most unique settings we've come across. (Let's just say I won't be bitching about bandwidth anymore at the coffee shop).

If you've got an interesting story about Ubuntu that you'd like to share, or have any questions or comments about the show, send them our way at lococast.net.
