Rubenerd Show 411: The FreeBSD cat(1) episode (6/16/20)

28:45 – A discussion about feline creatures liking me despite having never owned one… turned into a rant about desktop software quality, remembering Wintel and desktop Java, running OpenZFS on FreeBSD and NetBSD with cgd, BSD on an iBook back in the day, being burned by btrfs, BSDCan comments about home labs now being production, and wandering outside in beautifully-mild winter weather.

Rubenerd Show 410: The apothecary coffee episode (5/31/20)

25:23 – Not knowing a place till you leave it, the fascinating triangular windows of the old Belle Vue in Singapore, faded knock-off Lego blocks, Albert Einstein’s travels, finding new coffee shops, apothecary tables, government posters, a 1990s-era glass foyer, and a borderline rant on my butterfly Apple keyboard. Recorded early May 2020.

Rock Salt Cheese 46: Artarmon (5/8/20)

23:21 – The Onsug’s favourite Cantonese-Australian is back, this time with her hapless partner in tow! Topics include superstitious numbers, an explanation for the show’s name change from Snake Tea, various Malaysian cereal-based comestibles, Japanese Ōgui, an inevitable COVID chat, jobs, Clara’s business trip to the Bahamas and New York for which Ruben harbours tremendous jealousy, and an exercise walk to Artarmon. Best enjoyed late at night with a boba.

Rubenerd Show 409: The uncanny silhouette episode (5/6/20)

29:37 – Join Ruben for a late-night wander around the abandoned Sydney suburb of Chatswood during these lockdown adventures. Topics include 100 days of COVID-19, stairwall-derived exercise, Australia and New Zealand’s potential new travel bubble, finding coffee shops, spooky silhouettes in the night, a Liverpool FC barber, JoAnne Hook paintings, active voice, saying “you too!” to retail staff, and the uncanny valley as it pertains to… sheep‽ Recorded Monday 4th May 2020.

Rubenerd Show 408: The deserted tape episode (4/18/20)

39:20 – Wandering around a deserted Chatswood late at night, peeking into the empty stores, and watching the regular stream of empty commuter and metro trains roll by. Discussing working from home, trying to reconnect with music, critiquing streaming services, and a rose tinted view of audio tape.

Rubenerd Show 407: The overengineered everything episode (3/14/20)

25:32 – What started as a discussion regarding an ugly new concept car turned into pontifications about design, and anti-patterns in cars and websites. If overenginering is to make something intentionally more complicated for no benefit other than to ship product, why are we so compelled to do it? Or did I just answer my own question?

Rubenerd Show 406: The chipped hero episode (3/8/20)

31:52 – Wait, didn’t we only just get Rubenerd Show 405?! Discussing the production of chip-based comestibles, submerged data centres, etymology behind radio buttons, being tired of Boomer and Millennial labels, and when meeting your hero perhaps wasn’t such a good idea.

Rubenerd Show 405: The Walkenbach Envelope episode (3/7/20)

34:32 – Making a caffeinated beverage LIVE on the show like I used to, remembering Murni’s Warung in Ubud, the joys of envelope budgeting, John Walkenbach from Whole Wheat Radio helping me through his Excel books all these years later, and why it’s still so difficult for people without IT backgrounds to export data from shut down sites.

Rubenerd Show 403: The hot cake episode (1/12/20)

52:15 – Forbidden 403 HTML status codes, unhelpful profiling, Australian bushfire updates (looters, conspiracy theories, hot takes), unexpected Adelaide nostalgia and early breakfasts, unintentional philosophical ramblings on the character and motivations of certain people, and an ongoing good natured but otherwise inexplicable retail saga. With thanks to Phil Collins.
