Fab has ridden down a lot of road on his motorbike this week and by request of some of you tells a few stories about that. Dave got some presents from listener Urban Koistinen, who he thanks profoundly.
We really love
the new Alestorm album.
really The Intercept fucked over a whistleblower because neither her nor they knew about printer tracking dots.
What’s more funny is some hackers piloting their malware
