    I’m the opposite of what you describe.

    I always complain about ads on radio or tv, actually I choose not to have a tv or a radio mainly because of that.

    I totally support Firefox on their ads thing.

    For me ads with audio inside are way more invasive.

    Funnily enough…… the guy who does the latin translation in Event Horizon is D.J., played by Jason Isaacs who is a Liverpudlian.

    Revised caveat: Never stake your life on a Germans purveying advice about mistakenly identified Australians for actions actually carried out by Liverpudlians.

    Not sure about you, but I have always lived by that. Did not need to see the 23rd best movie ever to know it…….

    Which app do you use instead of WhatsApp? This is not linked in show notes.

    Thanks again for the great show.

    You didn’t find the actual mistake I made: Sam Neill isn’t Australian, mate. Smartass fail. ;)

    Egemen: I never even installed WhatsApp. I never used it in my life.

    I know I’m a little late on it but wow that BSD blog is bad, was it written by Stallman?
    Read through it and all I could hear was “No No No No No”

    BSD blog written by Stallman??? Not! BSD is not of the Stallman branch of free software. Besides Stallman is a decent writer.
