Show Notes

This time on Geek News Radio: Linus Torvalds calls people “fucking morons”, Dave reviews the Google Pixel 2 and Fab plays XCOM 2: War of the Chosen.

Audio on the last episode was sub-par. This was due to a stupid mistake on Fab’s part. Rest assured, he has been sufficiently punished. Ouch.

Just in case people were actually expecting some news from a show that has this concept prominently featured in its title, we start the episode off with some – for a change:

Linus Torvalds yells at security people. Again. (Fab had some fun with this. Also: Finnish dishwashing racks.)

Session-replay is evil.

Quad9 promises to be a secure DNS.

We evaluate Firefox 57 again. This time after we’ve actually used it.

Dave reviews the Google Pixel 2.

Fab talks about XCOM 2: War of the Chosen. He’s preparing another campaign starring his Twitter friends. If you want to take part, tweet him.



This Elite gamer group probably has the best logo known to man and Thargoid.

As is our custom,  we end the show with your feedback, including this great meme by NiklasMM the Great:

You must also heed the following message by Big Man Tyrone, Supreme President of Kekistan. Remember, this podcast has its own army.

Show Notes

In this episode, Fab reviews The Signal from Tölva and we talk about what’s coming to Warhammer 40K in the next weeks. We also talk about The Intercept completely fucking up and getting an NSA whistleblower outed.

Both Fab and Dave are getting into Warhammer 40K again and we’re quite excited about the #New40K. Sadly, Dave couldn’t make it to Warhammer Fest and now Fab himself has to buy Tom Walton the beer he promised him. In other Warhammer news, Dawn of War III is now out for Mac and Linux!

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.

The Intercept really fucked over a whistleblower because neither her nor they knew about printer tracking dots.

What’s more funny is some hackers piloting their malware through comments on Britney Spears’ Instagram account.

In the main part of the show, Fab reviews The Signal from Tölva. A game that’s a bit S.T.A.L.K.E.R., but more chilled and a lot more beautiful. Fab likes it a lot.

Here’s a video of Fab playing the game. Just ignore the German voice, right?

Dave is sourcing questions for FOSS Talk Live. Do him a favour and submit some.

Unsurprisingly, we end the show by answering your questions.
