Thanks everyone - and congratulations on completing your 200th show :partying_face: :partying_face: :partying_face:

I particularly glad to be watching on Odysee now. It seems a little more stable than Lbry was though both still crash Firefox on Android on my Samsung tablet for some reason(!)

I quite miss Zeb @zebedee.boss and hopped onto his youtube channel, only to find he hasn’t posted for some months. Hope all’s well…! Good to see a new games show arriving, and yes it is kinda nice to hear an English accent on podcasts sometimes too :slight_smile:

I’m glad FlightGear got a mention. I opened a thread on this back in the early days of the DLN forum but found not too many takers then. I first played MS FS in approximately 1995 and found it fascinating that it had a model of the whole world one could fly in. MS basically stopped updating in about 2000 or so, and only recently brought out a new version. It’s the only product of their’s I’ve been remotely excited about, but more for nostalgia value than anything else. I’m sticking with my FlightGear. Unlike you, @jill_linuxgirl, I haven’t quite taken-off yet. I’m hardly ever on it, and am still learning to do pre-flight checks(!)

As someone who’s been wanting to break back into IT professionally, I do hope knowledge of Linux gains value in coming years. About the time when Linus was reading his book on Minix by Tanenbaum, I was doing exactly the same, though funds didn’t justify the cost of that tome at the time. Couple of years ago I finally bought and read it, including all the source code. Even more work than LFS! Now I’m really keen to learn as much as possible, inside out, just like I did poring through disassembled source-code for the C64 operating system and BASIC interpreter back in the 80s when I first got interested in coding. Still hacking away at JavaFX these days though :wink:

Looking forward to 201… even 2001 already, optimistically :grinning:


Thank you soo much @ak2020! :tada: :joy::penguin:

And so happy that Odeysee is more stable!

Once lockdown’s over and events start resuming normality, it will be nice to get out and about - thanks for letting us know Zeb’s keeping well too. I always try to remember to stay away from caravans when driving on real roads though :slight_smile:

Let us not forget when needed: Sys 64738 :wink:


I used to depend upon anti-virus software. Now my computer just wears a mask and keeps 6’ away from the network. :stuck_out_tongue: :stuck_out_tongue:

Congratulations on 200 episodes of Awesome!!! Most podcasts would have had a Re-cap session or Highlights Reel, or Best-Of moments… But you guys just decided to produce another great episode!

Keep up the Tuxsational work!


@jastombaugh, thank you so much! I :heart: Tuxsational!! And keeping our computers socially distanced! LOL :grin: And thank you for being a friend across two networks, LinuxGameCast and Destination Linux!!! :joy::penguin::penguin::penguin:
