Late Night Linux – Episode 271


In a “brand new” segment we ask how you keep your kids safe online, and give our own thoughts. Plus Will tells us about a dirt cheap ham radio and the new way he sniffs Bluetooth traffic, Félim loves AI when it’s tracking his head, the open source way to control lighting rigs, a BBS-like interface to sites like Hacker News, yet another Spotify replacement, Damn Small Linux returns, and more.
