31:11 – Recognising two distinct trends on the programme of late, obsessive spreadsheeting, resenting new computer hardware, more thoughts around working from coffee shops instead of home/work, the computer dock and concept pioneered by the late OQO, and some speaking in between the coughs!

01:03:32 – In the first of what I hope to be many episodes in the Rubenerd Rewind series, we take a journey back thirteen years to my university dorm to hear Kevin Tan’s show! He heard me doing Rubenerd Shows when we were both studying in Adelaide, and thought he’d give it a try. Each of his six episodes are preserved and presented here in one easy-to-listen programme. Shows recorded by Kevin Tan in 2005-06, introduction recorded by Ruben Schade in 2018, and an Adelaide Channel 7 news clip from 2006.
