Burning Circle

Burning Circle Episode 90

This week's episode is one where we read out the report on the November 1st IRC meeting and refer to the R cycle as being one of Righteous Rebuilding for the Ohio community. We have a deadline to meet.

An attempt is being made in this episode to gauge listenership. Basic, simple blank postage-paid postcards purchasable at any United States Post Office are requested to be sent to a specific address with certain particulars written in. This is a method of avoiding slacktivism by ensuring that more effort is involved than merely clicking on something to show that you are taking part. Three things should be written on the postcard which include:

  1. Your name
  2. Your Launchpad ID
  3. What flavor of Ubuntu you run as well as what version you are on

By no later than Wednesday, November 7th postcards should be mailed by listeners to:

Erie Looking Productions
P.O. Box 1658
Ashtabula, OH 44005-1658
United States of America

Information gathered from this exercise will be shared with the High Council. If we receive more than two postcards from Ohioans, mention of what has been received will be made in a future episode.

Burning Circle 89

This week's we talk about dragging the BeagleBoard-xM backwards from Xubuntu 12.10 to 12.04 due to odd packages not being in the repository for armhf even though they're built for i386, the upcoming LoCo IRC meeting on November 1st, that Wheezy development is continuing, and that the Empowering Flavors session at UDS-R appears vitally important to keep tabs on and that the blueprint should be looked at among all the others posted for the Copenhagen event.

Burning Circle Episode 88

This week's episode was termed highly unusual by Mister Engineer as it is over six minutes long. In this program we read out a message from a member of The High Council of the Ohio LoCo, talk about first impressions of Xubuntu 12.10 and why it could not be installed on the BeagleBoard-xM until just before it was released, packages like Xfce's gigolo set to be dropped from Debian Wheezy due to too many bugs unfixed, and why the Self-Appointed Benevolent Dictator For Life should not have referred to a Skunkworks but rather to Opening The Kimono relative to his latest plan for openness in development.

Burning Circle Episode 87

This week's fairly brief episode raises the question yet again as to whether or not there is going to be a release party, asks if there will still be an Ubuntu in 2 years let alone another 8, and mentions the World Conference on International Telecommunications WCIT-12 having all sorts of nefarious proposals that might require architectural tinkering.

Burning Circle Episode 86

This week's episode brings the presenter being fixated on baking a cake for an as yet unplanned release party for Quantal Quetzal. Proposed names for the R release such as Rocking Robin were mentioned. What can we say? Cleveland and the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame are in this LoCo!
