Linux Cranks Podcast

If you haven’t heard the Linux Cranks have a podcast and a live show. They’ve been around for a while so I’d be surprised if you haven’t heard about them, but this is for those that haven’t. The show is basically a bunch of Linux nerds talking about Linux and generally hating on everything.

They currently go live on Saturday nights at midnight eastern and I think that all if not most are welcome. The last time I listened to them live it was quite fun and they have some good topics to talk about and a a fair share of crankyness.

The podcast is well put together from the show and is all in good fun (I think) but be warned there may be some language some may consider to be foul, vulgar or repulsive. Some people such as young children, co-workers and even animals (mostly cats) with sensitive feelings may not be suited to listen, but if you think you can hack it, give it a shot.

After all it is the intrawebs, and if you don’t like it you don’t have to listen.

They asked if I was going to give them a bad review since there were some technical problems with TalkShoe when I said I wouldn’t they then said I was going to ruin their reputation, so this is more of a recommendation or a notice to let you know that you should listen to it and get your crank on. Look forward to seeing you there some time.

What Linux Topics Should I Blog About?

Filed under: The Linux Blog News — TheLinuxBlog.com at 6:13 am on Tuesday, February 12, 2008

I just have a few quick questions for everybody so I’ll try to keep this short.
I’ve been blogging (sort of) for almost a year on this blog now and would like to know what keeps you coming back?

I’ve tried to keep the topics related to what I would want to read about. With Linux its hard to not blog about something that isn’t written some where else (which is part of the beauty of Linux) but what does everybody want to read about?

I could post articles that I’ve found explaining how to do certain things, link to other peoples articles / videos or I could continue to do what I’ve been doing.

One thing I would like to see is more participation from my readers. If you have a blog, feel free to comment and link back to your blog posts or give examples. Call me out when something doesn’t work or I’m wrong, I won’t be offended. Comments are moderated to prevent spam, but once you’ve commented once, you are pretty much pre-approved.

One last time (at least for this month) I’m looking for people to write for The Linux Blog. I’m looking for all levels of Linux users from the novice to the quote un-quote “Linux Expert”. Basically I’m looking for more reader participation. I put quite a bit of thought and hard work into maintaining this blog and don’t think its too unreasonable to ask for this. Especially since the advertising doesn’t seem to be working out.

Oh, BTW I’m still working on an OpenSource Bomgar solution :)

Until next time, be safe!
