Stuart Langridge, Jono Bacon, and Jeremy Garcia present Bad Voltage, in which pies are not permitted to be stored in the checked baggage. In this show:
- [00:01:50] In the news: the city of Munich are preparing a switch back from Linux to Windows, Chrome are preventing users from disabling their DRM and PDF plugins, UPS are working on a “rolling warehouse” by launching delivery drones from their brown vans, and Bad Voltage burger correspondent Jono announces the release of a new “bigger Big Mac” from McDonald’s
- [00:14:22] Disassembled: Gitlab. At the end of January Gitlab had a fairly major outage and lost data, and dealt with it in an unusually transparent way; a live video stream and live documentation of the fix investigation and progress, and afterwards a detailed technical post-mortem of what went wrong and why. We dig into the incident and the response.
- [00:30:15] The elementary team are crowdfunding a sprint to work on their app distribution story. But what’s the deal with the story they’re planning? We’ve got some thoughts saying that they’re doing it right… and some maybe that don’t.
- [00:54:40] Some updates on Bad Voltage Live, _next week_ (!!!) at SCaLE in Pasadena, California on 3rd March at 8pm. Buy your SCaLE tickets, come for the show, stay for the open bar and the taco trucks and the Spazmatics. And the show.
- We’ve also got a few questions for the audience — things we’d like to know. Come to our forums and help us discuss methods for the US border patrol and guest presenters!
