  1. Thanks, @MichaelTunnell - really enjoyed this, as usual! Now I’m up-to-date on my TWiL and DL podcasts, I think I’ll catch-up on Hardware Addicts next, though I’m very behind.

    I popped onto your sponsor Visuex’s site - very impressive, thanks. I think it’s just decades of using the command line, so is it just me perceiving this as:

    vi su ex

    and wondering if you’re telling us you no-longer use vi or su because you’ve moved on to Kate and sudo? :wink:

    More seriously though, great news as ever with kernel and other updates. I’m glad distros have patched that security flaw, though in mobile technologies I know some budget phones only provide updates for a very limited period and then that’s yet another vulnerability in Android?

    Recently I’ve chosen to try my hand at contributing to open source in the KDE project; one reason is its impact could be so far-reaching, including for Linux based mobile phones. We really them!
