 Supporters: Thanks to Rene Castberg, Michael Swierczek, Richard Bragg, Jeff Gehlbach, Jay Towart, Rick Bragg and everyone who flattr’d us!

  • Charles in Arkansas enjoys the show and has a pretty crazy idea to mess with people spying on his email
  • Ian Kirk sent us two pretty cheezy jokes
  • Gary sent us a link on how to install an ARM version of openSUSE on a Samsung Galaxy SII
  • Mike Swierczek (aka. Dave 71) agrees with us on the Google Reader death and really liked Frozen People by Eric Fullerton from The Art of Dreaming
  • Alison Chaiken points out that Ubuntu isn’t the only distro using Upstart: ChromeOS also uses it
  • J.T. is a new listener who enjoys the show and especially enjoyed our take on the always on Xbox

Penny Arcade: Always On

  • Kerry O’Brien tells us the story how our podcast has helped him get into Linux and set up a Minecraft server for himself and his friends
