Tonight on GeekNights, we continue "How Computers Work" with a nontechnical discussion of filesystems. In the news, some teachers shouldn't be teaching, and Mark Shuttleworth causes a (silly) uproar.

Linux on the PS3

Tonight on GeekNights, we have a short episode without real news. We're tired and sick, it's Thanksgiving week, the Wii is out, give us a break. The only thing in this episode is a reply to a listener e-mail about running Linux on the PS3.

Hard Drives: Partitioning

Tonight on GeekNights, we talk a bit about hard drive partitioning in what will become the latest in the series on "How Computers Work." In the news, Sun GPLs Java, and there's some trouble with counting votes.

Shameless Self-Promotion

Tonight on GeekNights, we talk a bit about the ethics of promoting oneself on the Internet. In the news, the Republicans are up to no good, and the F117 Nighthawk is honourably retired.

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.
