LHS Episode #012

Logging applications are finally on tap for Episode #012. We take a look at a three interesting QSO logging applications, one graphical and the other two console based. And while we know that could have been a show all on its own, we packed in three different perspectives on CrunchBang Linux. Yes, that's right, three perspectives. We've invited a special guest to give us his impressions of CrunchBang Linux on the Acer Eee PC netbook platform. Richard explores CrunchBang on a standard PC using the Live CD image, and I talk about running the Live CD and installing CrunchBang in a virtual machine.

And that's not all. We address listener comments, feedback, questions and talk with the live guests in our chatroom. It's the longest and most action-packed Linux in the HAM Shack yet, and we're just getting started. Thanks for listening, and don't forget to keep the feedback coming.

LHS Episode #011

Today we present Linux in the HAM Shack for the eleventh time. Because of a topic snafu we switched to a completely untested and radically different format for the program. However, in the words of esteemed author Douglas Adams: "Don't panic." We simply rolled the live feed into something resembling a roundtable discussion of Linux and ham radio related topics that we think listeners will find rather interesting and engaging.

That being said, because of the unusual format of the program some of the dialogue may seem a little strange. In most cases it can be explained as one of the hosts reading questions or reciting information provided by the live participants in the chat room at the time of recording. We also managed to wrangle a special third co-host for the middle portion of the program.

All in all it's a wild and crazy ride. Thank you as always for downloading the podcast, and special thanks to those who helped us out by joining us for the live recording of the program. Please check the web site for the next time you can hear us record live and participate in the program yourself.

Enjoy this special edition of Linux in the HAM Shack and we'll be back in a couple of weeks with a program on logging software, a review or two of CrunchBang Linux and much, much more.

LHS Feed URLs

Recently I switched the RSS feed information around in order to provide an option for those who want to receive the podcast in OGG format. At the top of the left column on the web page are the new feed URLs that you can use to import into your favorite RSS browser. I have updated iTunes so that the feed will still download only the MP3 version of the podcast. I would suggest that everyone who receives their LHS feed via RSS, please adjust your URL to the new one provided. If you continue to use the old one, you'll receive both the MP3 and OGG versions of the podcast, resulting in duplicate entries. If that's OK with you, then don't change a thing.

Just a heads up.
