Show Notes

In this episode, we catch up with the news in the geek world. That includes Amazon’s Dash Buttons, EVE Online going free-to-play, aliens and other space news.

We’ve been playing Elite Dangerous, which is clearly the best space game. Do you play? Why not join the Ghost Division? Oh well, if you’d rather wait for Star Citizen and Squadron 42… it has been delayed. Of course it has.

Amazon Dash Buttons. What the fuck.

Aliens

We also discuss PlayStation Now streaming and the aliens that weren’t any. And Batman, Turkey.

Dave then explains EVE clone states. Basically, EVE’s gone free-to-play. Could be it’s to do with the subscribers going down. Probably is. In other news: Elon’s spacepenis exploded, Linux turned 25 (fuck me!) and OpenOffice is dying.

At this point in the show, listener Tim Fletcher injects some drama by asking our opinions on the University of Chicago letter and phil0co tells us about The Curious Expedition. Fab will review the game in the next episode.

Dave is going to Black Library Live 2016. Fab wishes he could go too. This sleep lab seems broken.

We cap the show with some feedback and say goodbye until next time when we will talk about Sabaton and other metallic things.

Show Notes

Offshore Mike joins us for a nice long Black Library discussion, Dave reviews Huel, explains Bullet Journal and Fab rants about Star Trek Beyond.

First off: trouble is brewing at Cyanogen. In other sad news, The Expanse is not streaming on Amazon Prime in the UK. Of course not, because we can’t have nice things. To make things worse (or better, if you agree with Dave), Niantic has shut down third party Pokémon Go services. The bastards.

Dave remembers FOSS Talk Live and gives us a review of Huel. What a brave man. Apparently it tastes like cardboard with some extra grit mixed in for flavour.

Huel

We then discuss Bullet Journal, Passion Planner and wank on about notebooks from Leuchtturm 1917 and Analog.

Bullet Journal

Also: Operation Teapot. Wow.

Mike talks about the latest instalment in the Horus Heresy series, Angels of Caliban by Gav Thorpe and we philosophise if Luther is maybe not such a bad guy after all.

Luther

Mike finds out that he is not the greatest private detective in the world when he fails to guess Laurie Goulding’s email address to send questions about starship names to him. However, the questions have finally arrived with Laurie and we can hopefully present his answers in a future show.

We also discuss The Beast Arises.

To round out the show, Fab explains a lot of stuff that is wrong with Star Trek Beyond. For one thing, Idris Elba completely fizzles out under all that makeup. Well, at least we guess that’s Idris Elba…

Krall

We end the show with …you guessed it… feedback.
