This week: some more fun at the expense of the delusional cognitive dissonance in the Apple early adopter community, the shitness of Fujitsu-Siemens laptops, how to fuck with fax machines, Britain’s continued inability to provide affordable, non-shit broadband, desktop Linux, expensive conferences and Jason fucking Calacanis.
We also sing the praises of small, independent ISPs that are taking no shit from the fucking government and its entertainment industry fellating Digital Economy Act, specifically: Andrews and Arnold and UK Free Software Network.

Next week, it is a Programming Special: we’re gonna bang on about programming languages and tools we hate. Maven, make, MacPorts – watch out, we’re coming at you with a big fucking knife and we aren’t in the mood for taking prisoners.
Apologies: I, the pitiable Macintosh user, fucked the audio up by pulling out my trendy hipster white headphones during recording. The last few minutes has the audio out of sync: my audio is a few seconds before Ian and Nic.
Also, archive.org doesn’t seem to have decided to arbitrarily convert the audio into Ogg Vorbis like it used to. So, GNU-heads, you’ll have to use your dodgy ffmpeg installs this week. We’ll try and satisfy your tastes next week.
