Dave and Fab discuss software development crunch, freelance journalism, music and the game Objects in Space. There’s also some geek news to wade through, of course.

Fab was a guest on FLOSS Weekly 492 together with Dan (you know, that guy from Linux Outlaws). Also, he’s going freelance with his day job by the end of the year. He’s also started a new Twitch channel. Dave’s been hit by crunch, and he says it’s as horrible as people say it is. He’s managed to work on his Kill Team stuff, though.

Fab’s been really enjoying Hulkoff. He’s also bought a ticket for Wacken 2019 as Sabaton is headlining.


Fab’s been playing Objects in Space and reviews the game.


Alex Jones is being shut down everywhere, Fab things this isn’t a good thing. Unsurprisingly, Dave disagrees. In other news, there’s now a campaign to fix PUBG. The first thing they should fix is the cheater problem.

Fallout 76 is not coming to Steam. Idiots.

We end the show with your feedback and the bombshell news that Dave has deleted his Twitter account. 😳

Can't Handle Torpedoes

Dave has been playing World of Warships and Fab reviews Subnautica. We also discuss how The Orville stacks up against Star Trek: Discovery.

Fab has started a German PC games podcast with his mate Martin. It is called Kantenglättung Deluxe. They are aiming to release a show every month.

FOSS Talk Live tickets are on sale right now. Dave will be there, Fab probably not since he’s a fucking slacker.


We start the show off with some news:

Firefox is starting to promote sponsored pages.

Ubuntu is collecting more user data and apparently everyone is outraged.

These flight sim devs are stealing your passwords if you pirate their planes. German story from Fab (falls du Deutsch sprichst).


In the next segment, we pitch Star Trek: Discovery against The Orville. We both like Discovery, but Dave isn’t very hot on The Orville. Surprisingly, Fab likes both series. They definitely have their flaws, though and we thoroughly talk through these.


Dave has been playing World of Warships and talks about his torpedo woes.


Meanwhile, Fab has put a good 30 hours in Subnautica so he reviews it. Not only is it beautiful, it also has a very engaging story told in a very reasonable way.


In other news, Fab has submitted a story pitch to Black Library.

As usual, we end the show with your feedback. Thanks for sending us messages!
