So We Lost the Power Cable for the Compressor

Tonight on GeekNights, we left the power cable for our compressor at Ubercon, and as such we discuss the fact that few consumer product manufacturers these days allow for the replacement of parts. The audio quality of the show will be a little less than spectacular until we acquire a replacement. In the news, IBM sues Amazon, and Flash 9 beta is out for Linux.

CODECS: Images

Tonight on GeekNights it's a boring show about raster image file formats. Otherwise, obese people are dumb and McDonald's spread a trojan.

CODECS

Tonight on GeekNights, we begin a short series on CODECS. In the news, Scott rants about toxic carrots, and Google buys Youtube.

The News

Tonight on GeekNights, we consider how to follow the news. Speaking of which, Libsyn takes a stand, and DVD Jon is at it again.

"Free" Software Licenses

Tonight on GeekNights, we discuss the various issues surrounding software licensing, including "free as in beer" versus "free as in speech," the (L)GPL, Debian, and IceWeasel. In the news, hypoallergenic cats and the turnitin.com controversy.

Computer Sound

Tonight on GeekNights, in a bit of a cop-out (due chiefly to being exhausted), we talk a bit about computer sound. In the news, we have an ion-cooled PC and a turnabout in the recording industry. We also kick off Hockey Fight Week.

Origin Stories: Computing

Tonight on GeekNights, we begin Origins Week with a trip down memory lane as to the beginnings of our interest in computers. In the news, Wikipedia refuses to kowtow to Chinese censorship demands, and Mesothelioma falls from the top 50 Google adwords.
